Unexpected SQUEE-tacular Excitement!
Look! Over there! There’s a puppy playing On the Bog!
The warm, winter sun lingered for yet another delightful day. But the forecast called for a drop in temperature with gray skies a’looming.
Not to miss a chance to enjoy gleeful weather, Kat, Bear, & Wogs set out for a happy crinkle crunching stroll across the rainbow sparkling snow.
When suddenly, out from behind the trees, a euphoric puppy bounced and flopped into the crunchy white fluff ahead. He jumped up and down, swishing his tail enthusiastically. Puppy-Dad emerged next, carrying a stick, smiling, ready to play a game of fetch.
Kat (waving, grinning, and giggling with excited delight): Look! A puppy!!! Do you think he sees us?
Wogs (smiling at the playful puppy): Not yet, but keep waving!
Bear (happily acknowledging another fur creature on the bog and wondering if it would like to play with him, he called out with bubbly hope): Mrow!
"Make friends! Love them. Care for them. Appreciate them. Make them your family. And be thankful!
"The best of friends are precious flowers making life bright and beautiful." Ivy Baines, Damn Girl. That Sucks!
I love this quote from Ivy, the main character in Damn Girl. That Sucks! I love it, cuz it feels wonderful, filled with hope and goodness, and it really is true.
I got really lucky this past year to grow new and budding friendships. In these challenging pandemic times, it's been such a delight to connect via Zoom and chat ourselves silly.
We bring our cuppa somethin warm, a healthy snack, and jibber jabber over everything. We laugh. We share. We connect and care. Sometimes we art together and share our progress. Sometimes we cry. Sometimes we help each other cope with anxiety or stress. Every time we end with big smiles, lots of love, and the biggest of hugs!
I'd never met these delightful flowers until suddenly opportunity presented itself. Students in need of coaching. Ladies around the world coming together in a beautiful women's circle to show love and support. The universe delivered bright, amazing starlight to me exactly when I needed it. My heart was open, and I leapt to try new things and meet new peeps!
In this new year, as we begin to see some new hope and bright light, with spring not all that far off, if you are feeling open and ready, seek opportunity to connect and make new friends! Brighten up the corners of your life with cheerful grace and light.
I hope this is helpful to any of you who might be feeling a bit disconnected. I know I did. And sometimes still do. Tis the way of an isolating pandemic. But new or old, nurture your friendships and grow happiness deeply in them. It will fill your heart and hold you tight!
Sending you my PINK big hugs and SQUEE love!!!
