Life ~

The more you are thankful, the more 
you attract things to be thankful for...

Arvid is most happy when he listens to music.
 Here in Chicago that happens so very often. 
 No matter where you go, there is always someone
 playing on the sidewalk.  The other day at 
the Fresh market was no exception.

  After we got what we needed, mainly Arvid's 
bread and some goodies for me, we had to take some
 time out and listen to the music.  Yes, there was a guy 
playing, and we have seen him around at different 
corners of the city playing.  Arvid recognized
 the music and of course was drawn to it.

Here at home Arvid and Sniff have a very
 good time together.  Sniff talks and Arvid does.
 When Sniff "talks" Arvid starts to play with him.
I think that the one being played is Arvid,
 but he does not mind.  He likes it.

Saturday started out beautifully, and then just
like that something changed.  I saw a video a Brutus
 and Shadow and suddenly I'm not feeling so good.

I won't use the word depressed, but not sure what
 else to call this feeling that is swallowing me up right now.
 Of course there is also the guilt because Sniff was
 right next to me when the tears came.

 Life sometimes is not always exactly as we wish
 it to be, but on the on other hand, as they say the things
 we take for granted someone else is praying for.

I know it's going to be a good day, just have to
wait out the sadness that has come over me.  It passes.
 I know because it happens every once in a while.
  Time to think of other things and to get busy.

Wishing everyone a day of happiness and contentment.
  Remember even though we sometimes we let our
thoughts wander and take us back to the past,
it's also important that we do not stay there.

I just close my eyes because I might seer your face.
  I just close my mouth because I might hear your voice. 
 I just close my ears because I might hear of you, but
 I could not close my heart because I love you...
