We finished our day and had an hour to wait before Steve could pick us up with his appointments. Cricket sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. I sat on the bench nearby and returned emails and phone calls. I reflected on the fact that waiting for a ride can be a time of peace and relaxation. It is a choice. Certainly, there are times when I am pressed for time and would arrange for other ride options if needed but in this moment that wasn't necessary. I felt the gift of accepting what is and learning from the moment.
Cricket didn't question this waiting time - she simply accepted it, sat down and took in the moment with gratitude and appreciation for the sun and beauty around her. I learn so much from this sweet girl.
