We have had a lot of great help this spring. Ellen has smiled, and put in extra time helping us with whatever we needed. Lauren is able to come as well. She has been doing everything from cleaning, to dog training. Cliff is instructing her, so she learns the right technique–methodology. Other people have offered a helping hand on a one-time basis. Everyone’s effort makes a huge difference.
Cliff is about to embark on some intensive training sessions. I cannot say how much Lauren can, or will be involved. Nevertheless, having her help with the Weimaraners has benefited everyone.
One Day at a Time…
We tend to rush through life; most of us are very goal oriented. That is not a bad thing; however, the rushing-goal-oriented outlook can produce a lot of stress. Regardless of what is happening, we all must learn to take a deep breath, and tune-in to the moment. We sit in restaurants and watch adults and kids alike tuned-out, or engaged solely with their hand-held device. Those gadgets are a lot of fun, and they help us stay better connected–to a point. They can also help us to escape. The danger lies in escaping too often, and forgetting how to interact with the person standing (or sitting) right next to us. With the passing of an old friend, who departed this world at the very young age of 57, it makes you take pause. First, we need to be thankful for what we are given. Secondly, we need to remember to make the most of each moment. That doesn’t mean you won’t ever be found working too hard, or that you will never disengage to get away. It means that we need to remain engaged with our friends, our family, and those around us. To fail to do that could lead to regret. This is also true in our relationship with the Weimaraner. Failure to be alert, and connected will come to nothing good.
