My dog Rosy likes to dig. I’ve taken many picture of her digging up our back yard, and have adopted the policy that her digging will someday unearth buried treasure. I also tell myself that she’s prepping the earth for a patio. Sometimes we just have to look for the positive aspects of life in order to make the best out of a situation that we can’t really, or don’t wish to, control.
The other day, Rosy was digging, as usual, in the backyard, spewing the rich, thawed loam of the earth with abandoned joy. Her older sister, Daisy, was also outside, resting, and I realized what a marvelous partnership they had developed.
Look for the light of joy inside your days, even when you feel thorns pressing on your back. Beauty is always waiting to be seen.

Beautiful thoughts…… and you know how I love dogs!
Thanks, Lori! They bring us much joy 🙂
Aren’t dogs wonderful! If Rosy has any luck with finding treasure in your yard, I have a place where we lost some things many years ago…
No luck so far, but I’m sure she’d love to dig in your yard too 😉
Great big smile for the partnership between Rosy and Daisy… ! Dogs and all animals are amazing teachers.
They sure are 🙂
