Delay On The Dock

Delay on the dock Sweet pea Delay On The Dock

Springing into action is generally considered a laudable thing to do.  But it’s not always the best thing for us.

Joyful Springers delay on the dock.  Before taking important action, they take the time to make some preparations.

Plowing ahead can move you forward in life, but it can often move you into messes you could have avoided if you’d just taken a bit of time to line up your ducks first.  Whenever you’re chomping at the bit, take that as a sign that you may need to rein yourself in a little before you take off.  A bit of judicious planning can make an action journey a whole lot more fun.

[Sweet Pea's back.  Her momma, Denise wrote to me that Sweet Pea likes to watch the ducks in the marsh.  On the day Denise took this photo, the ducks were missing.  So Sweet Pea sat down and looked at Denise instead.  Doesn't Sweet Pea look like she's asking, "Where are the ducks?" icon smile Delay On The Dock ]

    Definitely Sweet Pea looks like she’s asking that question! What an expressive face. Another sweet photo of her. Well, I must admit that Mattie often seems to spring into action…..although when I reflect on it, she does take time to plan her strategy….such as when she’s going to chase after birds or squirrels….she plans the best route or waits until just the right number of birds are within her range. What smart girls we have!
