“You know what the issue is with this world? Everyone wants a magical solution to their problems, and everyone refuses to believe in magic!”
~Alice in Wonderland~
No, Alice. Some people and puppers DO believe in magic. There are many magical things at my house. Mom believes that magical things will help her reach her goals. Since I have no goals, I go along to get along and humor her.
The Daruma Doll brings optimism, good fortune, and strong determination. Daruma dolls are sold without the eyeballs painted in. People paint in one eye when they set out to do something and paint in the other one when they have achieved the goal. As you can see, our poor, little Daruma dude still only has one eye…
Heart shaped rocks…and 4-leaf clovers are a couple of the things Mom is always watching for on our walks.
This guy brings faith, magical power, and spiritual strength.
And of course the dream catcher filters out the bad dreams and lets the good dreams fly through. The dream feathers carry the dreams home.
So, Mom has big plans for all her lucky, magical things to take her to the elusive Book #2 in 2019. Well, that and some hard work, new twists, and a couple of online challenges and support groups. Paws crossed that something works.
Mom’s magic and mine are slightly different. I think the most magical thing in the whole house is the treat drawer! Bags and bags of treats.
All I have to do is be a good girl and ba-bam. I get a treat from the drawer! Yum. Magic!
Oh – and the car keys hanging on the doorknob are pretty magical, too…
