Almost Wordless Wednesday

This photo is Shyla standing next to a flower that will forever remind me of love and loss. I first discovered these Fairy Trumpet flowers on July 15, years ago, on the day that my Acadia became an angel. Angel K left us on July 15, three years ago. The same magical flower is blooming every year on this date.
On this day, I truly realize that every moment that seems like an ending is also a beginning. I didn't know Shyla back when K died and left me with a broken heart... and now Shyla is part of my heart.

  3. Something the same down here, as both Tom and then Poppy vanished on April 6th, exactly 2 years apart. And then along came Boris. Love those flowers, and for you to share your special memory days with us, hugs in heaps.

  5. Shyla is so beautiful and precious. I don't own a dog (we can't have pets because of very severe allergies), but many dogs have captured my heart and I wept over many of their deaths. A dog can "steal" your heart, but at the same time they give you their heart and loyalty. They are wonderful companions - and such unique characters!

  6. KB, I love how the circle of life renews our spirit after a heartbreak. Each pup deposits so much into our hearts and lives. I think our past dogs help lead the next ones to us to fill the huge hole they left. Love the flowers. Also, saw the video with Tiny in the water-so cool! Hugs,

  8. Dear Shyla, I wanted you to know that I thought about you yesterday in my Pilates class when I was trying to do something that scares me. You totally helped me be brave and challenge myself. You're awesome!
