Scenes from a Dog Walk at Sunrise

January is here… the time of never-ending winter.

The hours of sun are increasing, but the light still begins at a reasonable hour, allowing for a chance to enjoy the day’s beginnings. Having a dog to walk with simply adds a smile to the experience.

The past year has been difficult. I lost my Roland, my husband, after a short but intense battle with brain cancer. Grief now encircles my world.

Mornings, and walks like this, bring a sense of comfort and hope.

We met our neighbour and his dog, Maple, while walking in the field. Maple and Odin are best buds. But, since Odin was at doggie daycare this morning,  Lacie had Maple all to herself.

Be gentle with the one who walks with grief
If it is you, be gentle with yourself
Swiftly forgive, walk slowly,
Pause often,
Take time
Be gentle as you walk with grief
