Mia Leads the Way

We are smack dab in the middle of life, each and every one of us.

We have lots of things to do, yet never enough time to get everything done. Our lives are filled with laughter and funny moments, but plenty of pain to go around, too. We all know someone who could use a hug and a kind word or two, right this moment.

We have joy and we have sorrow, all part of our human experience.

If I had to boil it down…if I could choose only one word out of the English language…or from any languages of the world…just one word that really matters to me – my word would be love. 

We try and we fail. We make mistakes and we have success. We sometimes even hurt someone.

But, we love one another. 

Life seems to be coming at me fast these days. I know many of us feel this way for all kinds of reasons.

Check out the following photo which might well be titled, “Where Are the Dog Treats?”

As I pushed our shopping cart through Fairway Monday morning, I wondered if Mia might leap out. I need not have worried, Mia was thrilled with her vantage point!

Mia acts as though she is leading the brigade. Eyes straight ahead and obviously engaged. 

Maybe dogs have it right, be here right now.
