The future is made up of nows

Sometimes  — when we lose sight of the important things in life –

It takes a child or a dog to remind us

That life isn’t to be lived in the future

But in the now.

Or in the words of Mae West, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.”

  19. Oscar looks SO happy in this photo, it is indeed a wonderful reminder to all of us. (Lindy, however, would look at her Kong toy and wonder why we hadn’t filled it with peanut butter.)
    Thanks for a really bright spot in my day, Fi.

  38. Living in the now is very important…. We ‘relaxed’ like your dog this morning for sure… We slept until almost 9:00 (usually get up at 7:30)… Either we were just terribly tired —or we just relaxed longer!!!! Whatever caused it—it certainly felt GOOD…. ha

    Have a great day..
    Hugs,
