Not feeling the best yesterday . . . but Cocoa wasn’t swayed. She wanted me to put the computer away and play, go for a ride, and get a Starbucks. Amazingly, she found a way to beg for each of these with her eyes. Eyes always convey the hidden messages of the heart.

Thankfully, PJ (the cat) came to my rescue and provided the right motivation for “play time.”

Then he fell asleep in the sun.
