I think that I will look back at this phase as one of the harder ones in my life. My father isn't doing well with his cancer and its treatment. Hachi's issues add to that stress and sadness a lot.
My morning time with Shyla in the meadow is a time when I simply forget all else. I gaze at the flowers, watch her run, and figure out how to photograph to show the beauty that I love so deeply. Most days, I get in a zone where my worries temporarily take flight.
The wildflowers have stunned me this year. Just a few minutes walk from our house, there is a meadow that has exploded with color to an extent that I've never seen before. I visit those flowers with the dogs every single day.
I am learning - again - to never take anything for granted and to fully appreciate every glorious day that we have on this Earth.
