Only this moment
-Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
When a loud noise outside wakes up my dog, he lifts up his head and looks worried. I find myself saying to him:
Everything is OK, doggie. It’s OK.
Listening to myself say this, I realized that even with the stresses at work and the loud banging of the garbage truck outside, that it is true. True for me too. Right now at this moment, everything is OK. We are both warm inside our house. We are healthy, we have enough to eat. We are safe. In an hour, I may be at my desk with 100 emails to face, but I can scratch behind his ears, and pet his neck, and thank him for reminding me.
