Small Stones: Friends and Kitties




Temperature at 20
Almost balmy
My kitties’ food supply low
Head out to Walmart
Cat food- check
Need bananas- check
Peanut butter jar nearly empty- check
Oh, yes, almond milk- check
No longer can drink coffee,
So brighten my attitude toward change 
with orange and spice tea- check
In check-out line... 
A friend in front of me,
She notices me first
We chat till she’s paid
Now I’ve paid,
On the way to the exit
Another friend sighted
Stop and chat
Shopping task done.

In my daily in-box comes 
a Minute Meditation from the Franciscan Media.  
Here is today’s which I found quite apt 
for my visit to Walmart: “Eye contact is more than a polite gesture - 
it is a simple yet meaningful acknowledgement of Christ in the other.”

I've been telling myself to start writing small stones for a year. I need to read up the method again.
