May 28--Just Be Kind

It's a little embarrassing that after 45 years of research and study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder to each other.  --Aldous Huxley

    Each day my prayer includes this: "Help us all to be kinder to each other and kinder to the planet." 
    I have a snoozing pup next to me on the bed. I've learned a lot from Barney. Though we don't know what breed(s) he is composed of, we know he has strong herding tendencies--he is much more relaxed when his people are organized and in sight. He is curious, especially with cats and bunnies. He can be very still, with just the slightest nose twitch; he can zoom around the yard and house at lightning speed. He's good at chilling out. He loves his people. He's quite vocal when he thinks we need a talking-to. He entertains us by romping with a dirty sock while we are enjoying meal time. He's smart and eager to please. He makes us laugh. He gets wildly excited at the suggestion of a car ride. He's a really good long-distance traveler. Belly-up for belly rubs is his most adorable position. I've learned a lot about kindness since Barney came to our house. 
    Today is a good day to practice kindness,

Focusing on a bunny...
