GOLDEN NUGGETS

You know those television shows where people go to Alaska or South America or Timbuktu to try to find gold and make themselves rich?  You know where they spend millions and millions to make a hundred dollars...to say they found gold.  Isa was a thinking about that last night and it befuddles me.

See I think God drops down  little golden nuggets in our path, but humans are so busy not really looking where they are walking to see them.  You dive in and out of the day so fast, getting to where you are going, and planning then on how to get back to where you were.. that, you miss them. 

I talked to my Momma about this last night and I told her that golden nuggets comes in all forms.  Wesa pugs are golden nuggets, cos we bring our parents so much joy and laughter in their lives.  The grandmonsters are golden nuggets, cos they also bring joy and laughter, and so much love in their lives. And then there are the friends who come into their lives all along the way.  They are shiny golden nuggets also.

 We read somewhere that people comes into your life and leave your lives at different times and for different reasons.  Sometimes they are in your life for a long long time and sometimes just a short while, their to teach you a lesson that is important for you to learn or to help you through something you are struggling with.

See we three pugs think those "short timer nuggets" can be the most powerful influences and leave you the most empty when they are gone.  They must have a clock ticking and their goals for you all written down, so no time is wasted.  Their the tricky ones also, cos you don't even know you are learning a lesson, or making a memory, and then poof.........THEY. ARE. GONE.   Only then do most of us just stop and sit and let the quiet cover our souls, and we become open to what they have left behind.

Look around today and truly see all the golden nuggets that are in your life.  Take time to enjoy them and laugh with them, and hug them.
