If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough...

Sadness, grief call it what you like; it is really very strange.  There are days I can go by 
with just minimum tears, but then there are days like today when suddenly it comes to you,
 and nothing can stop the flow of the tears.  That's what happened to me this morning.  

Suddenly it hit me again, like a ton of bricks that my Brutus is dead and once again the rawness 
of the loss and ache took over.  The tears came fast and furious, but once it subsided, I guess
 I was back in that spot of so called "calmness."  Yes it comes and goes in waves. 

Sniffer is just the therapy we need.  He keeps us smiling with his cuteness and busy with
 all the games he wants to play.  As soon as I wake up he's ready to play and that goes
 on throug out the day.  Me I am just happy to oblige.  He's so darn cute and
 he makes the most endearing sounds.  Very hard to resist so I don't.

Woke up to blue skies and the sun in its full glory.  
I know it is going to be a good day.

Arvid and I had some time for a little outing to the beach yesterday.  As always it was
relaxing and very calming.  I love our beach walks.  Makes everything seem possible, and
 makes, just listening to the sound of the waves and the birds makes me realize how
 good life is.  As I said before, I may not have all that I want but what I do 
have is very good.  For that I am grateful.  How about you?

A thankful heart is a happy heart.  It is not happy people who
 are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy...
