Good Morning Friends - I was looking through some of my treasures this morning, and there it was--a story told to me by Heidi, very special dog of our family back in 1985. Thought I would share it with you today...

DOWN HOME MEMORIES

"We have two kittens again. It's been a long time since we've seen them romp and play at Para-Deys Acres. Somehow we never learn, do we? Kittens and cats--puppies and children--continually the same, and yet each a species of their own intellect. Profusely they speak words of grace to us. The learning comes from the watching them grow--and me, I'm just one of the silent partners here. I've been around for quite a few years now. My face is starting to change character as I take on the beneficent rays of eternal youth. I gain confidence in my ability to scare away intruders--but down deep inside, I'm really a ham at heart. I walk around these premises like a well-balanced participant, here at Para-Deys Acres. I gain control of my everyday life by monitoring the yard. Each and every sound that I hear, I check out. Drat those birds; they're forever diving at me to prove that they're not afraid--but they should be. One gulp with my massive incisors, and they'd be mince-meat--and those kittens. What will they bring me next? I thought I had it made when those last two disappeared, but here we are again--pottytraining and all. My tail seems to be a FANtastic joke to them. Even my snarls don't scare them. They must know I'm only foolin'...

Wonder what the neighbors will think when they see how gentle I've grown. I used to chase those cars for all I was worth, but now I'd just soon "let George do it"--he's the shepherd down the street. I even let one of the little cats eat from my dish. Oh, my--I'm getting soft in my old age.

Wonder what they'll do with me when it's time for my transition? I know more about these things than they think I do--lately I've been making plans. It will be a great adventure to be free again. I've loved this family from the very start and they've been so very good to me, but there are mountains to climb and creeks to wade--and I'm just about ready to try.

Perhaps tomorrow I'll think about all of this. But for today, I'll do my marauding in the garbage, chase those little chipmunks who have dared to traverse upon my property, and take a nap. That's right, a nap! After tomorrow I'll be a new expression of energy--somewhere, some place extending to new horizons of adventure and then who knows, I might expand to great new avenues of awareness, conceive new inventions to help people help themselves and gain insight into the vast, new cultural world which is now expanding upon the planet..

...but for today,

I'll just be

Heidi--Dog of Peace, friend of many and a true example of The Living Word IN ACTION.

God bless us all as we enter into these newly exchanging energies upon the earth. My awareness increases, my family encourages, and I am a St. Bernard / part-Collie, and an efficient potential of the personal expansion of my mother's and father's genetic structure--God bless their affluent souls. (I am one of five)!!!

I examine in my way in this world of choice--and there is love in my heart, for I am part of the ever-expanding circle of positive energy upon this planet. I AM HEIDI--and I AM, THAT I AM, THAT I AM PART OF THE WHOLE.

In retrospective harmony I gain admittance to new levels of appreciation, and there is great potential in my heart--and there is JOY--and there is me, just plain DOG. In Eternal Joy expanding I claim FULLY my own--that of life in many forms experiencing, and I am blessed--for I am, that I am Heidi.

I close this epistle of my heart with a wag, with a bark, and with eternal love to my family of choice at Para-Deys Acres--and I am blessed beyond all other entrants to this yard because I know, that I know I am loved.

God bless us one and all. There's a new day comin' and I'll be part of it. IN GLORY EXPRESSING AS A BRIGHT, ARTICULATE MANIFESTATION OF LIFE IN ACTION AND PERCEIVING AS DOG--MAGNIFICENT PARTICIPLE OF ENJOINED WISDOM NOW EXPANDING IN MY NEWNESS--AND GAINING STRENGTH DAILY AS A TOTAL EXPRESSION OF HOPE UPON THE PLANET EARTH. Oh, yeah--I am aware--and it's super! I rest my case for now." - Heidi
