Every morning before I leave for work, I take my sweet little dog for a walk.  As soon as I open the door, and she steps out onto the front porch, her head points Heavenward. As she drinks in the smells of a new day, she is on course  for her routine, and most of all, she is engrossed in loving her family.  Sometimes, it is the every day, simple things that are as important as the bigger ones in keeping us centered in life.  Often, when we lose sight of the shore, we can lose our way and that can lead to unhappiness and regrets.  There is nothing more comforting than seeing the beacon that shines from our “lighthouse” in the distance, reminding us that we have stayed true to our course.
