Day 12  Yogi

Today, I was able to do something very kind by spending time with my family and my adopted family.  The kindness shown by these two special people helped me immensely as we laughed, talked, joked and enjoyed each other company.  Another person not as close but dear also was able to take time out of her busy scheduled to be with us for lunch.  The one person, Yogi, has insight which helps to challenge as well as look at life and issues in different ways.  We appear to have gone through similar challenges in kindness.  The Dalai Lama speaks of our enemies as great teachers.  I have recently thought this but at some point, I believe something has to give.  To be kind to ourselves, I believe it can be difficult to put ourselves day in and day out in a harmful situation in which we experience selfishness to the point that we may suffer.  I don't know.  All I do know is my Yogi was able to get directions for the naval base in Annapolis.  He said it took a village to do that.  We did nothing but follow.  Sometimes, it takes a bright person and blind followers to get to the place they need.  As we arrived at the naval base, we saw where we were only a block away from the base to begin with and walked probably 1/2 a mile to get there.  Sometimes, it takes just good friends and laughter to get where we need in life.  Makes me smile just to think of it.  Lead on Yogi!! Lead on.
