I don’t know why, but going into 2013 I just felt like it was going to be a great year. I have nothing to really know why, but I just feel something inside that says it is going to be a wonderful year.
We are almost done with January and good things are happening here at Joyful Paws Headquarters, a.k.a. my writing cottage. Last week I was contacted by a veterinarian clinic. They will be teaching relaxation massage classes in Feb., March and April. Instead of charging a fee they are asking for donations. They told me they would like the donations to go to the Frankie Wheelchair Fund. Well, that just shot me over the moon! There is much good in the world.
Today I met with Bookworm Gardens where Frankie’s legacy lives on in gardens in nature that connect with children’s literacy. They are planning their big kick off event for the season on May 4th when the gardens will open once again for the warmer weather. They’ve decided to do what will be called, “Walk, Roll and Read Day.” The gardens are located across from our local University Campus, so the walk (or roll with strollers or tricycles) will be around the campus loop. It will be a family outing and walk/run and fundraiser for Bookworm Gardens who have graciously offered to donate a portion of proceeds to the Frankie Wheelchair Fund. There is so much good in the world. I’ll also be on hand for storytelling time and a book signing that day. And yours truly, the new ‘walk ‘n roll dog’ of my life will be making an appearance.
These two recent unfolding of events and generosity have me feeling on such a high of happiness. There is much good in the world and I’m loving my corner of the world and all the caring and kind people I am surrounded by.
