Mom’s 100-Yard Dash
Duff here. The other day, Mom was at the Safeway shopping center. She spied a Friend driving Her gorgeous Truck, and being Friendly, began to Wave. Her Friend was busy driving (Good idea, but no Help to Mom,) and kept on moving. As You know, if Nothing else, Mom is determined. She continued to wave, pacing the Truck from the Next Aisle Over. No response. Not living unstuck.
But Mom has Grit. I watched as She picked Up the Pace, and continued to run, coat tails a ‘flapping. (I barked a bit from the Car in Support.) She figured She could catch up with Her Friend before She left the Parking Lot. Mom was gaining on the Vehicle, when whoosh! The Truck turned onto the main Highway and was gone. The One who was most Enthused about the Entire Adventure? A Man standing on the corner, soliciting Money. He noticed Mom, and waved back. Perhaps He admired Her style. That’s living unstuck.
How about You? When You see a Friend, do You go all out to meet and Greet? Or do You remain sedate and Calm? I say: Take a Lesson from Mom, and Go all Out. If You can’t run, Walk (or run) rapidly in Their Direction with a Smile. I do this often, wagging My Tail as I go. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#greeting-a-friend
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
—Lucius Annaeus Seneca
