Peace In The Valley

Somewhere along this road of life I travel, I picked up strange little habits. Odd little things to help me cope.
One of those things was saying something to clam myself when stressed.
I don't know where I picked this up. I am sure it wasn't my own thing, I must have borrowed this exercise.

I say to myself again and again:

Peace In The Valley
and I think of happy thoughts, places and people

If I am trying to calm the dogs, it goes:

Peace In the Valley of Dogs
Think of your happy place puppies! Chasing the ball, chewing on a Rawhide

It works. Crazy as it seems, it does.
I have even caught a Bestie doing this with her puppy!

I find myself saying this and I know it comes from you. I also say it to my dog.
