Here's how one of these moments transpired today...
This morning, I was thinking about taking my dog, Bisbee, for a walk. Like many dogs, there are certain words or phrases that, when she hears them, she starts to do her happy dog dance.
If I happen to say any of the following words or questions, she knows that a stroll around the neighborhood is bound to take place shortly.
you want to
Well, what do you think?
It's actually gotten to the point in our dog/master relationship where sometimes I don't even have to utter a word...she just seems to know what I am thinking. You know how people say that owners eventually begin to resemble their dogs? Well, I think owners and dogs eventually learn how to read each others minds too. Atleast when it comes to taking walks.
She knows what I am thinking.
This thought triggered another thought this morning...and with this thought came one of those moments when a smile washed across my face and a specific memory warmed my heart. It was a conversation I had with my son, Sean, who is now seven years old. At the time, he was only three years old. I was driving home from town and he was in the back seat of car. I can still picture this moment and how I glanced up and looked in the rearview mirror when he began to speak to me.
"Mommy, are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?"
"Umm, I don't know...what are you thinking?"
"I don't know...I'm just sayin'...are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?"
A silly, random, memory
I was trying to think of a lesson for this post and I guess it would be to cherish those things in life that bring a smile to our lips...and to hold these moments close to our hearts. Appreciate and savor the daily little gift of memories that prompt a smile.
Appreciate and savor...how I need to be reminded of this...and YOU? This is just a sneak peek at Eileen who walks in the wide open spaces of God's love. Her blog The Scenic Route is where she imparts her gift of taking God & life and connecting the dots between the two. She loves capers, barefoot running alongside her husband and Sean ( her 7 year old boy ) If you follow Eileen on Facebook you will almost always LOL at her posts. She brings you back around to God's grace. And while your at it...savor a memory...or two today. will you?
