Apologies, friends, from my weeks long absence. You have no idea how activity-packed my heavenly life is! And mama’s had her hands full with puppy Timmy Elijah and exciting work projects. But no excuses, as I have missed you all terribly!
Today is a very special day on earth and in heaven. It’s Easter, of course. A day of rebirth and release from earthly attachments. And, it’s also Buddha’s birthday… did you know that? To celebrate, mama and her grandma (my GG) attended a special rose-petal ceremony at the Spiritual Center for Positive Living. 90 minutes of music, meditation and a ceremony of light and love left mama and GG in a state of blissful joy.
Following service, the humans joined more family for a relaxing brunch full of good stories, giggles and more love. And, I must say, that mama’s aunt & uncle asked about me and wondered when they would hear from me again. Overseeing their conversation, I was moved to make time in my schedule to put paws to the keyboard and reconnect.
While my human family was enjoying each other and good grub, Wilbur and Timmy were waiting at home. Since Timmy is still a wee pup and can’t be completely trusted, mama crates him when she leaves the house.
Sadly for Timmy, he had a poopy accident in his crate and sat in his mess. Laid in his mess. And, in a desperate attempt to escape his soiled crate, Timmy flung poopy pieces out of his crate and all over the room!
Luckily, mama was floating in a fog of blissful contentment when she returned to a very messy, smelly puppy and house. Mama immediately stripped down to her skivvies (no need to dirty her Sunday best) and scooped a very anxious Timmy into a warm bubble bath. It took nearly an hour for mama to clean Timmy, the crate, his bedding, the floor and the walls. And two sticks of incense barely made a dent in the stench!
I would like to think it’s my influence on mama that she handled this situation with love, laughter and gratitude. Grateful that she has a wonderful companion in Timmy and no amount of stinky dung can dim that gratitude and love.
As my readers know, I had my fair share of accidents and naughtiness in my earthly carnation, and
today’s mess made mama smile with memories of me.
It’s been a blessed Easter for my family and I wish the same for you and yours. What did you do to celebrate Easter? Passover? Buddha’s birthday? The rebirth of spring?
