A new year begins



Another year comes to a close

And what have I learned?

What’s my take away?


Be kind

Bring joy to people and

Develop your talents and virtues  


There is nothing new in these thoughts

They are age old ideas 

That still make sense


They are simple 

They are profound 

They resonate with me


May the coming year bring you joy

And you bring joy to others

Be kind

And the world will be a better place

Puppy dog eyes…

Puppy dog eyes
The look of adoration
That pleading look
The look of helplessness
The look that says my happiness
Depends on you

Puppy dog eyes
Perfected by dogs
But equally as effective
For us humans
If used right

Puppy dog eyes
The look that says
I love you
I’ll be by your side
I’ll miss you when you’re gone
The look that says
I’ll give you comfort when you’re stressed
You can rub my tummy anytime you want
The look that says I’ll be your most loyal friend
All I need from you in return
Is a little love
My food on time
And my daily walk

Puppy dog eyes
Are not pushy or harsh
They are gentle and mild
Meek and kind
And that’s why it’s hard to say no
To puppy dog eyes…
