Okay…I know…it’s shameful to use such a cute little guy just to get you to look at my post! It is hard to believe that I have a new puppy! Seriously, I am still in denial (kind of) and we have had him for 3 weeks!
I have been dying to write about him, but just like always, life can get in the way. I got the puppy right before I had to travel up north to see my sister and her family because they are moving to the middle of the country, and I wonder if I will ever see them.
I was supposed to be in town for one day, but then my Dad almost died so I intentionally did not get on my friends plane, and that left us stranded in the north in ANOTHER snow storm. Oh, and then there was that nasty business of finding out I was betrayed by someone (once again…she never disappoints) and a huge blow up with my partner. But that’s all over now….whew…weathered the perfect storm much better than any other time in my life.
Then I sat down the beginning of this week to write about him. I wanted to use the “wet” and “dry” photos and that prompted an unexpected writing that I posted earlier this week titled, “Cover Me With Love.” It just came flying out of me, like many of my poems. I just love when the divine powers take over and there is nothing you can, or would want to, do about it.
So here I sit and when I look at his photos, I find it so hard to believe he is the same doggie! But he is. Then I thought about the different “photos” we all have. And yes, even though it is hard to believe we can be the same person, we are.
I have at times tried to run away from who I am, or who I was. I am the same person, but with more understanding. I have walked on a long road and I have learned many things. I am grateful for the lessons I have been taught, and yes I am grateful for the person that I was at every stage of understanding. If I deny who I was then how can I possibly rejoice in who I’ve become.
It is all part of a master plan that I have come to enjoy not knowing exactly what will be. But I have full faith that whatever it is, it will be right. So, I may not look the same when I am wet, but I love and honor who I am, who I was, and who I will be…which is the same person with more understanding.
Oh….and just to brag a little…Melo or Mister or Monkey Face or Corey or Puppy Wuppy ….is the best little doggie in the whole wide world. He is so smart and so beautiful….you get my drift! 😉
