"Calm your emotions and nourish your joy."
i started my day with this reminder from the little book,
i found yesterday. letting it guide my day some.
i shared the berries with him at breakfast, but he passed up the lone pea.
later we took the dog with us to pick up the door.
while in the store, so many people stopped to pet him
and ask his name.
he felt very popular and loved, and wagged his tail.
but most of all i thought of the joy he brought to them,
a tiny moment in their busy day, when they stopped for a pet
and a short conversation.
