This is Deputy Digby Pancake. If some days seem to go by in a blur, you are correct.
It has been said that time flies when you’re having fun. Time also seems to go slower when you aren’t having fun or waiting for dinner. But time seems to flash before your eyes when you meet the love of your morning, and you know that you only may have that morning to be together. For the rest of your lives.
It is not that often that I meet someone at the dog park that puts up with me. Yes, I know this is shocking to no one, but I like to get attention by humping. Maybe you are the same way, I don’t know. But on Thursdays, it is more frowned upon than on Wednesdays. And as I ran around the dog park while Sheriff Brickle pawtrolled everyone as usual, I knew it to be true. I had met my match.
It was my match of love with brown eyes and a happy demeanor. A girl that did not care about my antics, only that I was being myself. And she let me be myself over and over and over again.
Sheriff Brickle was even so amused by our performance, that he let the commotion go. He knew it. It was meant to be.
Have you ever met someone in a moment and still think about them years later? Perhaps it was someone that was nice to you at a store, or who helped you when you needed it. Maybe it was someone who helped change your tire when you broke down, or gave you money for food when you could not afford it. Maybe someone touched your life in an instant that you never were to see again. But they left an impression on you.
Well, my friend definitely did that for me at the dog park. I haven’t been feeling so good lately. And yet, she brought the puppy out in me again. She didn’t know anything about me other than I was happy to see her and play with her and even have a drink with her.
In fact, she really didn’t need to know anything else other than I enjoyed her company and that I loved her for her, as she loved me for me.
So many times, persons think that everyone has to know everything about them in order to make a friend. Sometimes, they aren’t even nice to people that they don’t view as friends, but strangers. They think somehow that if they are just meeting in passing that niceness is not as important. But shouldn’t that be even MORE important? If we only meet someone for a moment, don’t we want them to remember us fondly? Don’t we want to make an even nicer impact on their lives?
There are individuals we know our whole lives. There are individuals we know for an hour that we may not even learn their name. No, I did not know her name. But even though we had to part ways, my love won’t stop growing in my sweet memories for her and her acceptance of me as I was.
So wherever you go this weekend, make it a point to make an impression. No, not the Digby Pancake way because you would be arrested.
But try to make a good impression on someone that needs it. That is how they will remember you for all of their days if you don’t meet again. As long as the world goes by in a blur, make that blur one of singing, laughter and as much fun as a Thursday morning dog park romp with my brown eyed girl.
