Thankful Thursday

Life is a crazy mixture of joy and sadness. This view is the moon setting over our new valley. The beauty of the stark peaks jutting above the horizon with the moon setting over them awed me.

Yet, I have these deep pangs of sadness even while soaking up such beauty. I miss our Black Dog.

I am thankful for the beauty of our world and for all the years of happiness with our Black Dog.

  6. What an unusual and stunning picture. Losing a beloved dog is one of the worst things that can happen to those of us who choose to live with them and love them for their way too short lives. I know you know this, of course. Thinking of you with love.

    happiness comes again in odd little ways... little by little.
    but the sad is there to stay for a long long time.

  14. We understand. Glad you're allowing bits of joy in. It can feel disloyal in a way, can't it? But the joy and grief are all a part of love, as you well know.
