OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On June 23 we were surrounded by family and friends who love and support our relationship.  People who have witnessed our past relationships and understand how incredible it is for both of us to be here together today.  It was the happiest day of my life.

In sharing our story, I see and hear how it touches others.  We are blessed and grateful to have really found each other again.  That in itself is wonderful, however the icing on the cake is that we really like the people who we are today.  Each of us learning from our past relationships, taking what we liked and leaving what we didn’t.  He is a happy person by nature and I have learned too that I am a happy person by nature.  Together, our lives are complete.

I appreciate WordPress

My desire to be a writer began in December 2009.  I had a great encouragement by a good friend who had been published.  She led me step by step here to WordPress and showed me how to begin a blog.  Thank you CJ.

I did a few, very few blogs since then, but WordPress has remained steady and sure and here – a wonderful constant.  Something that I could count on.

In 2015 I finished my book and in the process of sending out queries to agents.

On WordPress I am also finding a wonderful community of fellow self healers, fun seekers, dog lovers, and self-aware great writers.

So, WordPress, please continue being my beacon, anchor and thank you for sticking around all these years!

Just saw the movie…and I am emotionally wrecked (if you haven’t seen it, then this post will be a spoiler alert).  I have had many dogs in my lifetime and now I am reliving the death of each of them….ugh, really?  Do we really need to relive those memories AND the fact that we lose the ones we have? I am grateful for each of them, Little-bit, Buddy, Rocky, La Rue, Bella and now Faline is in my life….each one had their own personalities and were companions in different ways.  Truly grateful.

The final message is true – be in the moment, cause that is how dogs exist.  But the premise that dogs reincarnate and find their favorite owner….hmmm.  Too hard to fathom, but it made a nice story.

I have should have known that I would be wrecked seeing a dog movie because to this day I still ball when I see the movie Benji…sob like the child I was when I first saw it.

So, since being in a funk for the past week, having a summer cold has made me rally.  I truly hate being sick, but feeling sluggish and tired can be constant when battling depression and general “blah-ness.” But when I have a cold, the usual slug and tired condition become monumental and so I have to push harder.  And when I push harder, I feel better, I accomplish more and I notice more; write my blog, work on my book and made forward progress, made chicken parmesan, exercised.  So again the good is I feel better, the bad is I see I really need to vacuum cause I notice all my dog’s hair on the floor.  ugh.
