The Inner Puppy.
He did ask me to hold off for a couple of days before I pawblished, sorry, published a posting. I know he was hoping that a number of people might read his posting. Let them see that through adversity, we can find inspiration. Yes, he sought out his inner child and during such recent times of torment, I sensed that peace was beginning to embrace him in new and magical ways.
And during those times of torment, of his lingering doubt, I've been here for him, comforting him, making him realise that all will be okay.
A little while ago, he did something rather unusual, he went out the front door. "Where are you going, Gary?" "To the hospital", he replied. And the next day and the day after that, I asked him the same question and got the same reply. On the fourth straight day of him going out I said, "Let me guess, you're going to the hospital?" "Not this time, Penny. I've got to go to a medical assessment where I have to prove I've not been very well." I found that most odd.
The weekend started and I noted he was tired and confused. "Gary?" "Yes Penny?" "Gary, I have sensed, very deeply, that the last two months have been a huge challenge to your resilient spirit. I am an adult dog and yet, my dear human, I rejoice in the purity that is my inner puppy. Relax Gary, tune into your inner child and let the pure goodness immerse your environment. You are going to be fine. You love me and I love you."
I saw the solitary tear flow down his cheek. A tear, of relief, of reflection, of hope, of happier times to come. He looked at me and said, "Penny, beautiful Penny, indeed there are times when it seems that negative forces, be it external, internal, or a combination of both, tried to mess up my life. I'm learning the lessons. Lessons that teach me that through adversity, I gather strength, determination, inspiration. As you embrace your inner puppy, spread joy to me, to all who are blessed to know you, Penny I have the wisdom to defy my inner critic and embrace my inner child."
"Penny, when it's dark and rainy, I do not merely see droplets of water on the window. The raindrops, illuminated by the street lamp, become stars and the street lamp, a galaxy. I can see the positive in what can seem the most negative of moments. Thank you, Penny."
