Favorite Video Friday – Mog’s Christmas Calamity
This week’s pet video might not be of the typical fare you find here on Fridays, but it made me smile and it warmed the cockles of my heart. After what happened this week in California, I think we could all use a little cockle warming, don’t you?
Let us not forget the beauty in the world, like the love of a good pet or the kindness of strangers. The truth is we rely on their kindness and mercy more than we know. We should make sure to recognize it whenever we find it.
“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. (Don’t Hesitate)”
― Mary Oliver, Swan: Poems and Prose Poems
Happy Friday everyone.
