Wow, that was quick

In between the last post and this one I've found a place that will let me train in my wheelchair and a lady has given me a perfectly lovely low drive border collie. Now, the Universe is not going to pave the way smoothly for me-the world at large (represented by relatives) is going to come up with 10,000 reasons why I don't need a dog, any dog and THAT dog in particular, who they've never met.

And I could come up with some reasons why I do, the biggest reason being it's hard for a person to bend down to chihuahua level to train. Well, dang it, it is.

And, for whatever reason, I want to train a dog. So, I'm just going to enjoy my little secret, go meet the dog next week, and then and only then, introduce it to the family if I think it's a go.

But here's the thing, I am almost tearful with gratitude, because I feel like somebody heard MY cry and gave me what I wanted. Now, the truth is, I went out looking for a class and a dog so maybe I gave myself what I wanted.

Maybe we should accept our own right to give ourselves what we want.

I agree. We should get ourselves what we want. But is everything we want good for us?

I think a good deal of what we want is not good for us. Case in point, French Fries. Not good for us. But, I think that we can develop the ability to know what is good for us, what is indifferent, and hopefully, what is not good for us.

Like Spiderman's Uncle said-with Great Power comes Great Responsibility.

But in my case, I'm just now realizing my own power to have what I want, or rather, that it's really OK to have what I want whether anyone understands why I want it or not.

Isn't it wonderful when things fall into place for us. It truly reminds us that there is someone watching over us. Now, if that someone would just send us a buyer for our condo : )
