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.

Sometimes it is when we are still and listen that we learn so much. I am so glad you enjoyed the snow! I hope we'll get some this year...
My dogs they teach me how to accept thing for what they are and enjoy life. Your gang know how to enjoy the simple pleasures that matter.Peace
We can learn so very much from our fur babies. Living life through their eyes....peaceful.
Happy Weekend!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

I really enjoyed reading through your dedication week posts! and this was a perfect one to end on! When your out in the snow it just seems so peaceful! I was walking the dogs during our last snow fall and at one point in time I just stopped because all you could hear was the snow falling. It was just such a peaceful feeling!
Our dogs make us better people <3
Sometimes it's the quiet moments that redeem us and bring us back to ourselves!
Sounds like bliss, absolute bliss :)
My pups bring a joy and element to my life I never would have dreamed possible. They truly added depth to my life that I never expected. I could thank them every day too!

Awww! I love this post - it reminds me to think of those quiet moments to keep myself centered and at peace. IT's no coincidence that the outdoors and our pups are inevitably involved...
