Wilma Wednesday: Bright Spot
I’m trying to be positive in a world that feels negative. Counting my blessings helps: my husband, my home, my friends and neighbors. I wish everyone had the good things I have.
Wilma is one of my brightest spots, and a great teacher. When passion springs up she allows it to consume her for the moment, but then she moves on. If only I could let go of things the way she does.
Recently she pulled a muscle, thanks to her passion for protecting us from possums. She’s been limping. The doctor said to limit her activity, so she’s staying inside a lot.
“BORING!” she says.
“Please use your inside voice, Wilma.”
“Let’s DO something.” She’s trying to be patient, but it’s hard to wait.
“Remember the squeaky,” I say.
Wilma asked Santa for a squeaky toy for Christmas and she’s trying her very best to be nice instead of naughty. It’s not easy for a passionate dog like Wilma.
