We had a wonderful rainstorm here today. The Old Pueblo really needed it, too. All of our outdoor plants are doing the happy dance now in joyful jubilation. For a minute I thought I heard tiny little voices singing “Raindrops keep falling on my head.” Okay, maybe it was just my imagination.
Just when it started to pour sideways, as it sometimes does during our summer tempests, I looked out my office window and saw the peephole created by something or another. Isn’t it odd that there would be this opening? I thought it was kind of cool to see the reflection of my desk lamp in the image, too.
Have a beautiful Sunday. Namaste’
Well, my friends, it’s going to be a hot time in the Old Pueblo today … weather-wise. Supposed to be 103 today and 104 tomorrow. Lucky us! Ha!
So I thought I’d post this image of flamingos that I took at the zoo earlier this year (and never had time to post). Makes me feel cooler just looking at them.
I’m jealous that they have their feet in the water 🙂 Namaste’
Many years ago, when we first moved to the Old Pueblo, we went out to breakfast and I spied one of those free papers that hang out in front of a lot of restaurants. It was called the Awareness Journal; a small publication, chock full of really cool articles and ads. And, if you haven’t guessed by now, I’m an avid reader of things metaphysical.
The publisher of the Awareness Journal had a dog. He was a black Lab and had his own “corner” where he did his “dog speak” … an article written from a dog’s perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed it and so did our dog, Jingles. (I read her the article each time it came out.) It was so much fun, and I was sad when the paper shut down.
But there was one thing a contributing writer wrote that I cut out and memorized because I thought it was perfect. Below today’s picture is A Daily Prayer of Gratitude. Maybe you’ll find it to be a good way of expressing your own gratitude.
The image below is one of a flowering plant that’s on the patio where we moved my Mom. She seems to be doing well there. It’s an adjustment for her, being in a residential care home, but she’s such a trooper. Love you, Mom! Namaste’
DAILY PRAYER OF GRATITUDE:
Thank you, dear Creator, for this, another day of life. Thank you for my abundant supply and for that of my family, my friends, and for all beings of all planes, dimensions and realities. Thank you for leading us to the places that we shall go, the work that we shall do and even the dwellings we shall reside in. Thank you for knowledge, courage, the love of the light, and the wisdom to use it wisely with our brothers and sisters. You are my shepherd; I shall not want. I love you, dear Creator.
It’s that time of year in the Old Pueblo when the lizards come a-callin’ and this one tried to hide from me but I got the shot anyway. Daisy usually patrols the perimeter and somehow missed this one (she was probably napping), or she would have chased it down. He’s hanging on the wall with both of his left legs. A bit of an acrobat if you ask me 🙂 I wish I could have got his head in the image but I had the feeling if I moved closer, he’d be out of there.
Hope your Monday is a good one. Namaste’
