A flock of crows circled overhead this morning –a sinister gathering of dark-winged forces that broke my backyard reverie.
“Nevermore,” they rasped.
“Nevermore,” the canyon echoed.
“No more,” I whispered, and hurried inside.
Friday the 13th. It’s a fretful date for many, steeped in a brew pot of superstitions and ominous warnings.
But not Freckles. I mean, c’mon! Sunny skies overhead and a bellyful of herring…who wouldn’t be reveling in their good fortune?
Life isn’t perfect, of course. Tsunamis hit and storm clouds threaten. But if anyone can teach us how to turn an inauspicious day toward the good, it’s Freckles. He just goes with the flow, our pinniped pal, and so can we.
#FrecklesFriday is a relatively new blog feature, here at Joyful Noise. Let me know what you think! (If you want to see the first few entries, click here.)
It just goes to show how simple it is to turn a negative into a day of joy!
Reminder to self: add one bellyful of herring to shopping list.
It’s not something I’d want to ferry home in my own car, but if herring makes you happy… 🙂
One of my childhood “delicacies”. Pickled herring. ?
I love how Freckles takes life in stride…or flipper…
Reminds me of those “be like…” posts.
This is Freckles
He loves life
He doesn’t worry over things he can’t change.
Be like Freckles
Thanks. Lovely as always
He’s so chill, our Freckles. I love watching his antics, and even when he’s napping (most of the time), he’s got a smile on his face.
love his smiles and laughs! “IN everything give thanks…” Sometimes it’s easier to do that than others.
You’re so right, Carol. We are happiest when we find room for gratitude in every little thing.
