Got your shine on?
My dog, Raggs, is a miniature schnauzer which means most of the world is bigger than him so he defends me and himself pretty quickly. I wanted Raggs to be social with at least some other canines. So, I set up a doggie playdate with one of my friends and her dog, Oliver. We planned to go to a dog park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. I was really nervous when Oliver and his mommy arrived. “What if Raggs didn’t get along with Oliver or any of the other dogs? What if he tried to defend me and got in a fight?”
Raggs once again proved me wrong as he shook with happiness as Oliver came into our home, showing Oliver his toys. The walk to the dog park was a happy one and Raggs made several puppy friends. He even became the “bouncer” of the dog park, breaking up fights. It was as though he had found his element. He was a really good dog that day.
Life has a way of showing you where you best belong. Today, listen to your life for opportunities where you can shine, even those outside of your comfort zone.

The motto for many turkey hunters this year is, “So close and yet so far away.” It really is amazing sometimes how close we can be to a good gobbler and yet be unable to take a shot. More than one person has bemoaned this truth to me in the last few days. I have empathized with them. Just today, I got as close to a roosted tom as I possibly could without being seen. He flew down and paced the side of the hill just over the crest from where I was set up. He probably got as close as 40 yards but I could never see him. He was literally, “so close and yet so far away.”
