Tuesday – Anything Possible – Happy New Year

New Year's Day

“Twiggy. What are you doing?”

“Checking out the backyard to see if 2019 has changed anything.”

“It is all the same out there. Twigster. In fact, everything’s the same.”

“Well, that is good to know.”

“Wait. What’s that thing on the wall?”

“It’s been there long before you got here, Little One.”

“It is an artistic dolphin.”

“I swear, Lucy. I’ve never seen it before.”

“I think you are so low to the road you miss a lot. Trust me, nothing’s changed.”

 

Hard to believe another year has flown by. Our wish for you is the happiest possible year in 2019. Maybe a tad more kindness wouldn’t hurt either.

    Wonderful, John. Sometimes we all can be too “low to the road” to see the obvious. Here’s to a New Year of magic that we truly experience. Blessings to you and yours!

  13. Kindness is always a good thing! Is the artistic dolphin a new Christmas present? Looks very “sea-shore-ish,” if that’s a word. Happy Happy 2019 to you and the ladies!

    1. We have had the dolphin for about five years. Done by a local artist. We thought it was sea-shoreish too.

  17. My house never looks as clean as yours. I’m telling myself you stage it for the photos. Helps me sleep at night. I hope 2019 brings you to new heights.

    1. I don’t mean to have you lose sleep, but there is no staging. Never have time with the pups.You have to be ready when they are. Thank you for the New Year’s wish, Craig. I wish the same for you.

  21. Definitely more kindness! We’ll start with us. That Twiggy… noticing more of her surroundings, bringing a new view on something that already existed. Maybe she’ll convince Lucy to see more πŸ˜‰

    1. Lucy pretty much runs the show. I think Twiggy will learn a thing or two.
