Ever wonder if maybe you stayed to long at the festival? I know I felt a bit like this sweet little puppy today at the Dickens Festival in downtown Riverside. Tucked in a stroller, wearing a pink "fascinator" hat, well, I think I would get a bit weary myself. But she was a champ. She let me bill and coo over her, scratching her chin and make silly baby voice noises to her. And she took it all in stride.
I now think that I sometimes don't take things in stride often enough. I get weary. I get bored. I just plain get frustrated with how things are going. Many I should take a clue from this adorable little dog in a buggy. Go with the flow and just relax. This too shall pass. As long as we are cared for and well fed, what more can we ask for?
Maybe our own pink fascinator.
