On top of the pain, the weather has been dismal - in the 30's (F) with various combinations of snow and rain.
We still have a few lingering autumn leaves but most have now fallen under the weight of the wet snow.
As always, my pups help keep me smiling and forgive me quickly after I'm cranky from the unrelenting pain. I smile when I see Shyla zoom through the snowy world.
I love when the sun burns through the clouds, even just for a moment. It shined on us briefly this morning, and Shyla glowed in a sun puddle in the forest.
During that brief moment of sun, the clouds lifted so I could see the local ski area. The skiers are happy! And I'm happy for them.
Shyla is telling me to "be brave" and maybe this spinal issue will heal. In the meantime, she says she'll keep me smiling.
