It has been weeks of preparation
lists lists lists of all the do's
There is the offer of a loving home for the guardian dog
another to care for the wild felines with daily food and water
an unexpected offer of brand new luggage
others to water the plants these hot august days
A ride to the airport with a gracious attitude
I am not a detail person but
There is care of the mail
connect with family and the vet
Check flight schedule and boarding passes
clothes to take and all the vitamins
A few medications and allergy free foods
I am packing just right for the airport police
Bj's bag of food, toys, water treatment and his liver treats
Type out the inscruction for emergency numbers
I am not a detail person.
Yes, Oh Yes there are keys for the cat person and the friend person
that is coming by to keep the house company for a while.
I know I am going to forget something and leave it behind.
I know! The phone charger.
Details rattle my serenity, Mess with my inner peace
Then I remember or perhaps discover
How rich my life is with all the ones who are caring for me while I am away.
So I offer gratitude for these details. They clear the way for me to be.
And this blog is one more detail.
