A weekend or two ago, I was sitting in the lounge having a general chat with the kids. I was in the process of deleting my photos off my camera as I had just uploaded them onto my computer, but this time I had uploaded them onto my Apple Mac and not on my Dell laptop as I usually do.
As I was just about to delete the videos I had taken of my little daughter doing a dance concert, I mentioned to eldest daughter that when I load my photos on the Dell laptop it usually downloads the videos too. For a second there I wondered if it happens the same way with the Apple Mac. Daughter assumed it would too, but just then my eldest daughter’s boyfriend said he has a feeling I should rather just go and check first.
I usually respond when people have spur of the moment feeling about something. So I immediately went to my office to check; when I got into my office, my eye caught a bit of a commotion outside in the fish pond. Our new little puppy (pic above) had fallen into the fish pond and was battling to get out. The other doggie was running around in circles not knowing what to.
Naturally, all thoughts about photos and videos flew right out of my head. I grabbed the keys, unlocked the security gate, opened the other glass door and ran to the fish pond, luckily he was close enough for me to lean over and scoop him up out of the water.
I called for a towel because the poor little thing was soaked. The girls were drying him, cuddling him and hugging him. He recovered very soon after all the attention. As I write this, there is a little wall being built around the fish pond so that this cannot happen again.
The next morning I was looking all over for my camera, which was nowhere to be found. Later I went outside to find that in my haste of saving the little puppywups, I had left my camera outside. Fortunately it did not rain that night.
Also, the videos had not uploaded, and I have realised how to do that too now. So, puppy saved and videos not lost – all because of a feeling.
It is when things like this happen that I wonder if it was a coincidence or are we sometimes prompted to be at a certain place at a certain time. What do you think?
