Our entire world has been transformed from ugly browns and grey to soft snowy white. It has been such an exhausting day and the freshness of the new fallen snow was rejuvenating. Because of our hectic day, the dog's scheduled ended up out of whack and there was nothing better than an evening out in the wet fluff to clear our heads. We all stood in the quiet snowfall, listening to the stillness. I watched as Brut lay making snow angels, his eyes holding mine at just that right moment as he swished back and forth. Zappa made his own snow angels while Fiona took the opportunity to pounce on him. Somewhere out of the shadows Silver slide into view waiting for me to throw her favorite football. I hear Blaze and Chance out front in conversation with a distant dog, knowing that their turn is next. All of the tension and fatigue drain out of me as I thought to myself, "This is the life."
This is the life that makes my heart go round with the circle of love that surrounds me. I could have laid down right there in the snow and fell asleep in the precious peacefulness.
I could thank each one of you every day for just being there.
