Sometimes Mom gets rejections. She got TWO of them the other day. TWO. At once. I’m not much with numbers, but I think two means a LOT! Now she hates the mailman, just like I do. She said, “This mailman has it in for me.” And I said, “Told-ja.”
But after she marked the rejections in her book and shredded them (so they don’t bring bad Karma), Mom went right back to having hope. Hope that she’ll finish her next story for 12×12, hope that her writing group (named DavidLaurieandOtherDavid) will give her some good ideas for her last story, hope for Book #2, and hope that I will learn to fetch a ball one of these days.
Our Collie friends and Chuck passed us the Hope badge in the Hope Relay. Mom says, “That’s a good sign.” and “Hope is a good thing.” and “Bring it here! Bring it here! Bring it here! RATS!”
I have hope, too. Hope that I can have a frozen ice cream treat today,
hope that we can go to the park later,
and hope that she’ll forget about this fetching stuff and let me keep my baseball in my toy collection on the couch.
My friend, Misaki, has been thinking about me lately. How do I know? She sent me this!
I’ve been thinking about my friends at Hamster Diaries. They’ve had a rough time lately, and now that they’re bouncing back, I want to pass the Hope Relay to them, and share the Thinking Of You Award, as well.
While we’re at it, I entered a fun contest at Mollie and Alfie’s Blog. Even though we didn’t win, we got this cool badge, anyway. Cute Huh? Thanks Mollie and Alfie!
All I had to do to earn it was look like this for a few minutes…..
