Sometimes life naturally just makes you stop, if even for only a moment, to appreciate the small things. You may not even realize that it's happening, but it is. Think about times when you've been so sticky, drippy and unbearably hot that you literally feel like you are melting into the ground and then suddenly a breeze comes a long and cools you off. Or when you thought that it was only 3pm and you look at your clock and it's actually 4:30pm and you get to leave the office and go home in an a half hour. And what about finding that $20 in your winter coat? That is all it. That is life making you stop for a second and appreciate the small things.
I had one of those moments recently when my Step-Mom's sister came to visit from Washington State and brought her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. There are no words that will really, truly describe how cute this dog is, so I will just show you. Please be cautioned however that this much adorableness at one time may cause severe happiness, difficulty looking away from your computer screen, inability to care about what you were just doing, the desire to run out to the closest dog shelter and rescue a puppy and frequent urges to start talking in your designated "dog" voice. (C'mon...you know you have one. Everyone does. Put simply: it is the way you speak to dogs when you don't think people are listening. It's okay.)
And now, without further ado, may I present to you, hailing from Seattle, Washington - Molly the Puppy:
Have a good day everybody and remember to enjoy the little things!
