This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Sometimes, you may doubt the power of my love for you. You probably should. Sometimes, I am only thinking about myself. Who wouldn’t when you look like this?
Oh baby when you look for me
Can you see forever?
I begin, baby, where you end
We belong together
In all of our lives, we probably hold a place for people and places special in our hearts. Like you hold for me, I imagine. Can’t be helped. Again. Look at me.
But our hearts may have other things in it too. We may have only been to a special place once. Maybe we have been there all of our lives. Maybe you met someone once who stayed with you in your heart. Maybe your heart is your family.
Whatever or whoever comes up in your mind so special probably gives you some peace and some comfort. And since we have been on the road for so long, it was hard for us to place where our comfort was. Seems like all we do in our lives is go around in circles. Sometimes we venture out of those circles. Sometimes, they keep leading us back for a reason.
Circle in the sand
Round and round
Never ending love is what we’ve found
And you complete the heart of me
Life is so short not only for us dogs, but for you persons too. It seems like yesterday that we saw our Gandma. But, it had been over a whole year. And when she drove four hours yesterday from Tampa to Jacksonville, it was like we were seeing things. But no. She was really here!
Had this much time passed? Digby was a little bit whiter. I was a bit handsomer. And yes, it was true. Many days had passed since that day we last saw her. And it made me think. How many more times did we need to go around in a circle? Should we keep going around in a circle to keep ending back in the same place?
Sundown all around
Walking through the summer’s end
Waves crash, baby, don’t look back
I won’t walk away again
They say life is a journey. I don’t know who “they” are, but it should be true. That journey may not be the same for everyone. Sometimes, it can be simply leaving someone or somewhere and realizing that your navigation was wrong and turning around. Or, your journey could be to find your way back to someone or someplace you once loved and where you left your heart. But your journey could also be to keep going or to keep searching, because you still need to FIND your heart. And I suppose that all roads should lead back to that. A circle. Your heart. Many times though, you have to remember where you left it. And that my friends is not so easy. Until you realize that if you are on a circle that it will always lead you back. Keep. Going. We. Are. Trying.
So as we keep going on our circle this week, we have a few things planned. We have two places we are looking at to live. We will keep you updated on that. Then, we will be going to a special place..some call it the Fountain of Youth. I don’t need any help in the looks department, but I will go for kicks.
So are you still with us on this circle? Seems like we have been on it for awhile with no answers. But in reality, as long as we keep going, our hearts will lead us. And we will find comfort in the fact that it is going to be worth it.
You know that I love the beach. You know that the beach loves me because it makes me look so dern handsome.
I say a circle or even circles in the sand is always good. Because if you get on the wrong one, you know that the waves of life will come and wash it away. And if a new start is needed, draw a new circle. Just. Keep. Circling. You will find your way. If we can, you can.
