Strawberry tragedies

Charlie the dog blog. The sun is shining and I have been laying out on the front porch soaking it up, waiting for the mailman as dogs seem to do. It's been a nice relaxed morning, and I've had time to have alot of reflection. Life has been a bit more challenging for us the last few weeks. Sometimes it's hard to see the big picture when we are caught up in the little tragedies that come our way. Come what may, we are still living a blessed and wonderful life. Our friends show up when we are down, and we have so many opportunities to show up for them. Amber has been working with her favorite girl Erin on a new idea, and the two of them are like two children when they get excited over something. They work well together, and they are hoping their idea comes to fruition. Amber has opportunities coming but the waiting is like waiting for food after starving all week. It's tough.

Amber has kept close tabs on her mothers mood as hospice has been caring for her, far away in Utah. It's a blessing everyday to realize the love you give is the love you get. When she was younger she made a strawberry cake that she spent so much time decorating for someone that it made her really feel proud, and life is really the same now. Be there for those you love, forget the mini tragedies, show up, and God will take care of the rest.
