I rushed both my dogs to the vet last month when I saw they had snacked on a prescription. I was terrified (Fortunately now they are perfectly fine. Phew!)
While the dogs were at the vet clinic being treated, I asked my dog-loving friends to send healing vibes to my furry kids.
An acquaintance, with the best of intentions I’m sure, told me he was praying for me and then proceeded to give me a play-by-play of how his cousin’s friend’s dog had gotten into something by accident, and they were too late so the dog died. I was looking for different kinds of vibes that day. Must you tell me that story?
Most of us have done it. I sure have.
My favourite sister-in-law (okay, okay, so I only have one) gave birth last year to the amazing, beautiful Hannah. It was the closest I’ve ever been to a pregnancy, and the miracle of it all blew my mind.
What did I do when my brother and his wife discussed the upcoming birth? I told them about a friend who had been in labour for ages and had major complications. Must I tell them that story?
It is about the choice of being present, realizing what we are communicating, and focusing on all the good stuff.
The great news is that I must tell you these stories… My niece is the cutest, smartest child in the Universe (yes, I know… it needed to be said again), Last week I booked a trip to see my niece this fall before her first birthday. I just went on a mini break for free to Prince Edward Island (a jewel on Canada’s east coast) and even visited Lucy Maud Montgomery‘s homestead and Green Gables which I had last seen when I was ten. The staff at the Fundy Animal Hospital rocks!!! And both of my dogs have nearly mastered weaving through my legs for Kelly Wilson’s canine freestyle class. Yes, I dance with my dogs. Google it. It’s cool. This is my fav routine I’ve seen.
What good news story must you tell? Share your happy vibes with us in the comment section!
