Our Portland Pet Sit Kitty
Today, my task is to pay attention to the good. Well. Really, everyday, in every moment, it is a good thing to pay attention to the good.
Yesterday, a large package landed. It was carefully wrapped, protected and sealed. It took a while for me to break it open. Inside, I found a fancy, expensive camera with a zoom lens, a camera bag, and extra batteries. It was a gift. A very generous gift from one of my blog readers.
I was overwhelmed, and excited for the first time in a long time. I took the camera out, turned it on, and played with it for a bit. Then. I held the camera in my lap and cried. Tears streamed down my face. I thought, Scott would have loved this camera. He loved photography. He used to own expensive cameras before I met him. During our time together, he used his phone to take photos. Only his phone. With tears rolling down my face, I whispered to him "I wish I could give you this camera".
Within moments of saying this out loud. I felt peace. I felt Scott with me. I felt good about the camera and happy that taking photos is something we can still share.
Later today, my sister is picking me up. There is a Laguna, not too far away. It is a wonderland of a preserve. Hundreds of species of animals live there including herons, hawks, fox, mountain lion, otters, and eagles. I don't know what we will find today.
The Laguna will be an inviting mystery and I am open to receiving whatever it gives us today. Today, I am paying attention to the good and hopefully I will bring a few good photos back to share with you.
