~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

To show resentment at a reproach is to acknowledge that one may have deserved it. – Cornelius Tacitus, C. 56 – 120

It was a crisp, Spring day full of life and energy. My four dogs seemed to feel it as well. Each one of them was delightfully sniffing the air and bouncing around me as we walked. Then as I was about to head back toward the house with them our Saint Bernard, Buddy, and our tiny Labrador mix, Pepper, both decided that it was the perfect time for a game of chase!

Before I knew it my legs were wrapped up tight with the dog leashes from these two running in circles around me. Thankfully, I was able to drop the leashes before I ended up on the ground. As I bent down to pick up the leashes again, however, my tiniest dog, Julie decided to give me a little help. She grabbed Buddy’s leash in her mouth and headed for the door. I looked on with laughter as my 10 pound Pekinese Poodle walked our 160 pound Saint Bernard back home.

In addition to giving me a good laugh this sight also got me to thinking. If a little dog like that can take the leash of a giant sized one and lead him in the right direction then there is no reason why all of us can’t take the leash on our own lives and start walking them on the path of love and joy again.

Sure we may have huge problems, large struggles, and massive difficulties in our lives, but if we let that smart, little dog that is our soul take the lead they will all fall behind us. That smart, little dog will lead our hearts, minds, and lives right where they need to go. That smart, little dog will lead us back home to joy, love, and God.

Let your soul lead you in the right direction, then all of your life will follow you happily. Let your soul walk you down the path of love, joy, and oneness with God and your journey home will always be a delightful one even if you do get tangled in the leash from time to time.

My parents and another couple visited me in Boston, where I was attending college. After a day of shopping, the two women were eager to return to their hotel via the subway. I was going back to my dorm, which was one stop before theirs, so I rode with them. Unfortunately, it was rush hour and we became separated in the crowded car. Every time the train stopped, Mom called out, "Brenda, are you still here?"

I finally yelled to her that I would let her know when I was getting off. When my stop came, I shouted, "Mom, I'm getting off now." To my embarrassment, everyone on the subway car yelled back, "Bye, Brenda!"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Ever get bored when you look out the window? Wouldn't a change of scenery be great?

Well, you probably can't change what's outside your window. But you can look out someone else's window. Just visit WebCam Central. It links to Webcams all over the world.

Search by category or location. Or, if you're feeling lucky, click random cam. It will choose a cam for you. Who knows what you'll see.

There are thousands of Webcams on the Internet. Some are mundane, like the view of a highway outside a pancake house in South Carolina. Others are more exotic, like a panda cam in China.

I was transfixed by the Loch Ness cam. Unfortunately, I didn't catch a glimpse of old Nessie. All I saw was a couple of sheep.

Could technology be the fountain of youth? You know about my three-hour weekend radio show. But I also host a show Monday through Friday. It’s called the Kim Komando Computer Minute. And on today’s Minute, learn how technology can help keep you young. Use the map to find a radio station that airs my Minute in your hometown.
