(I've tried to post this last night but something is going on with Blogger. It keeps changing the font, the size of my text and breaking in the middle of words. I just wanted you to know why this text is looking a bit odd and how it's not a result of me whacked myself in the head with the dolly...)
But talk about POSITIVE BELIEVING...
(I have other results of positive thinking to tell you about)
but I must tell you what JUST happened.
The second girl came in for the job interview.
She was so UP and cheerful. I showed her the cat room and introduced our clinic cats.
She made over all the cats and asked if she could pick up "Bird".
He's the 18 yr old cat that follows me everywhere and he's the one I worried about, back when I took a few days off.
(He's in Renal Failure and he's a little old man of a cat.) The girl took a moment with each cat and while holding Bird told me
"This might sound weird but I'm always drawn to the old or disabled".
I just smiled as she told me about her blind cat and her old dog on heart meds
and how she adopted them because they needed her to.
She said "Who else would have adopted a blind cat or an old dog?"
I don't even know her but I said, "Just you!.....or me".
We walked around then and I told her about the job.
She's already doing some kennel work at the job that she currently has so she knows what's basically involved and she stated that she actually enjoys cleaning.
This will be a part time job for her and she's hoping for evenings especially Sundays.
(Sunday night is the shift I had trouble getting coverage for.)
We walked out to the play area as she told me about how she loves all of her dogs but that she has one who is her soulmate.
She said that she usually doesn't tell people that kind of thing because they think she's crazy. We talked about the job but we also talked about our dogs and how we got them.
Then I asked if there are any dog breeds that she was uncomfortable handling and
she said No.
She loved all breeds... But she probably loves poodles most. I looked at her and asked if someone told her to say that and I laughed.
Then I told her I have three!
She said she didn't have a big family (except for her pets of course) and her family didn't live close so she would be willing to work every holiday!
And she added that she drove a 4 wheel drive so she could always make it to work. I told her she was hired.
Then we walked up front and I went to introduce her to Doc.
He was surprised and laughed because he knew her.
He gives her dogs chiropractic adjustments and he said
"Hey! You will get a discount! You'll save a lot of money!" I could tell he was happy to hear she was the new kennel girl. Isn't this freaky weird? Or not really.... Right!
OK, one more thing that happened. I was driving home the other night and it was early evening.
I slowed down as I came up the the wooded area behind the church parking lot.
It's just a habit because there used to be deer that would come out of the woods in that area. But no deer. There were hardly any cars as I drove down my street and I glanced around at the front yards.
No deer. Last year there were always deer sightings. I wondered where they were and what happened to the one that stopped in my yard a few times.
I felt almost ... Sad? Wistful?
Then in the middle of the night, well almost morning, I woke up because Blue was up. He was looking out the bedroom window and down to the street.
He didn't bark but rather made this low rumble in his throat.
I got up quickly and peered out. Walking down the middle of the street was a deer! Blue looked at me and walked away and laid down.
I got back in bed and just felt amazed at the coincidence. ??? Then today after I got home from work, I let my dogs out on the patio and
then I went to water my plants. When I finished I walked towards my backyard and looked down the hill. It's so overgrown, completely taken over by weeds and I don't care. I'm letting it be. Letting the wildlife have it. I had my phone in my pocket and I quickly snapped a photo.
Do you see it? I walked closer...
Yep, Life is Good.
