JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 sundays – 23 days to go

8 Dec


{trust}  

There are 23 days left of The Promise 365! But there are only three Sundays left in the year and this blog. So today I ruminate on Sundays.

First of all, there are the let down Sundays like today, where the Patriots lost the afternoon game. (There have been many winning Sundays along the way too!). Then there are the inspiring ones like the times I have visited churches on islands and cathedrals in Paris. There are also the long-awaited ones where I hang on to the weekend with a tight grip and a good book before the workweek begins again.

But most of all there are the Sundays that represent new beginnings. They symbolize new days ahead with new ideas, new adventures, and new experiences. These are the rest of the Sundays in December of this promise and this blog. Because, while The Promise 365 is ending that means the future is beginning. 

And there is no greater adventure than the future.
Trust me!
More tomorrow.Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 221 :: trust the present

9 Aug

{trust}  

Tonight we watched the movie, “The Art of Racing In The Rain.” I cried through the entire movie. It’s a movie for humans and especially for humans who love dogs. It’s especially emotionally draining for anyone who recently lost their dog, but then again, there really is no moratorium on the heartbreak of losing your best friend. 

I cried mostly because of Pup. He has been gone for a little over a year now but he is still so present in our hearts and memories. I think that’s the thing about dogs, they are forever connected to the heartstrings of the family tree.  

One of the lines that stuck with me most from the movie was: “The best drivers don’t dwell on the future or the past. The best drivers focus only on the present.” 

That is what our pets do for us, refocus us on the present moment. The wagging of the tail, the panting of the tongue, the leaping with joy, the barking and the snoring with great verve. They are the best teachers of the present moment. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
