Today, I saw a lot.
I think most days are like that, if we notice.
One of those hop-a-long birds at the beach, caught a little shellfish. The bird seemed to be filled with joy. Not so much for the shellfish.
I also saw one of the “Resort” cats eat someone’s leftover egg, and ham. She looked like a very happy cat, indeed. Not so sure what the chicken thought. And, I am pretty certain the pig would have protested.
There also was the Palm Tree getting whipped by the strong winds. But it looked like it was dancing. Maybe it was. The wind seemed equally as happy.
Oh, the Good the Bad and the Ugly.
I’ve met some good people on this trip. And a couple of bad. And a couple of ugly.
Someone suggested… right here…. in this discussion earlier in the week….that prayer might be a good thing to do for the bad and the ugly people.
I think this is right.
I actually think it is right in most cases. Call it prayer. Call it well wishes. Or just positive thinking. It makes no difference. The thing of it…. is to offer goodness to others.
A little more good in the world will go a long way.
I truly believe that the more favorable our presence, our energy, and our spirit becomes… the better for everyone. Everywhere. It is the Butterfly Effect. The ripple in the pond. What we do, effects all others. Directly or indirectly.
It all comes around.
And once again, I must tell you. This has been a great week here. With family. Our loved ones. And above and beyond that… we have met some really terrific people too. We have discovered much joy in some very simple things. Perhaps the best of it… just being with each other.
Very good to be here, right now. Happy to be we. Happy to be me.
