WeEk In ReViEw…♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. Shall we have a little tea.

It’s here! Happy Friday! Hope you have a few special plans for the weekend….

As you must know by now…I’m the sort a kind of reflective kind of gal. That’s why I enjoy looking back on my week. How about you… do you look back on the week too? I have a feeling you do….*wink

To see/ponder the wonderful things that occurred…perhaps sometimes even be grateful for little miracles that occurred. Today, I’m going to look back in an unorthodox way. I’d like to begin with yesterday…and go backwards. Trust me, there is a reason behind my madness. (grin) Yesterday, (Thursday) I went on my usual mile long walk with Cami. On the way home, Cami started sniffing around a bush. Turns out there was an injured cotton tail bunny. I looked down, and there were these sweet HUGE eyes looking at me. Honestly,  for a moment they spoke…”help me” I took Cami back to the house, grabbed a bowl, lettuce, and my phone. Walked back. The bunny had somehow managed to move it’s tiny little injured body about 5 ft. I tried to give it water, and then called a very dear friend of mine. I refer to this friend as the animal whisperer. She said not to give it any water, and explained why. She ended up giving me the address for an animal rescue. By this time one of my neighbors saw me hutched over in the bushes, and helped me. She put it in our crate. I drove to the rescue mission, about 20 miles from where I live. While on the freeway I heard a loud kick in the back seat, where the crate was. The remainder of the ride was very quite. When I arrived at the rescue, a woman came out to my car. I explained what had happened. She told me that the bunny had “expired” Somehow, I knew that was the loud kick I had heard. I became extremely emotional. I thought if only I’d brought the animal sooner. I could have helped it. The very kind woman tried to comfort me. She said that the bunny had been badly injured, and that by my taking it off the street, and covering it was the most loving thing to do. Because, at the end of it’s little life….it felt safe. At that point I became even more emotional. Well, I guess the point is that in looking back on my week….I see how I attended a friend’s beautiful memorial service,   https://marciascottagebythesea.com/2014/10/what-if/ reflected on how photography helps me seeing life in new ways,https://marciascottagebythesea.com/2014/10/photographynew-eyes/ and am realizing, that simplifying my life, allows me to experience it more fully..https://marciascottagebythesea.com/2014/10/a-life-lived-simply_9/ Somehow, everything connected for me. The importance of embracing the moment. I was heartbroken that I wasn’t able to “save” this little creature. However, I tried my best…and that’s what I will be joyful about.
