Now more than ever I find myself reflecting on the kindness of others. I truly believe most people are good kind people. I see kindness everyday when I go to the gym and strangers who are now acquaintances say 'hello' to be and I feel like I belong to a community. Focusing on kindness leads to seeing more kindness in our life.
As Blogger continues to have its hiccups on our blog sites, I see blog friends reaching out to blog friends to help or give tips. Whenever someone posts about a difficult time in their life, fellow blog commenters rally and give encouraging words. I witness this on many blogs and that is why I love the blogging platform over the fast world of Instagram.
I want to have tunnel vision towards the nicety of human kind. Our world would be a peaceful place if everyone would say something nice and hold off on the criticism. To celebrate the best of humanity should be a universal goal.
Right when I was about to announce that my home has become a peaceful state of animal harmony, they (Frodo and Holly) started up the craziness around here again. Holly keeps sneaking up on Frodo who is sleeping peacefully under his ottoman and just sits there. He gets spooked then chases her. I believe Holly wants to be chased and this is a form of kitten play. Frodo chasing is his form of dog play.
Kitten play and dog play is VERY noisy.
So the unknown rule is: Holly is allowed to bother (initiate play) Frodo, but Frodo is NOT allowed to bother Holly. Holly makes all the rules. There are moments in the day when I don't hear either of them and that makes for good knitting time.
Overall our little zoo is coming along nicely - just a bit noisy during parts of it!
