I’m grateful that a few days of car training resulted in resounding success. Now she jumps in the car ahead of me again, and right into her seat, patiently giving me each front paw as I strap on her harness and click it securely in place. She enjoyed her visit to Rocky’s house.
Deb’s garden is far more lush and beautiful than mine, and makes me envious. But I transform that into empathetic joy for her, and gratitude for our tea and spongecake visit this afternoon, during which I got to enjoy many blooming flowers like this exquisite rose, which I don’t have at home. I’m grateful for this new mindfulness skill of being able to transform a negative attitude like envy into a positive one like joy for the happiness of my friend. The lilies in her courtyard are a little bit ahead of mine, and she has one variety that I lack.
