Me, alone. Life after loss.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see. ~ John Burroughs
And that quote is true for me as well. I was happy, so happy in this picture taken on my 73rd birthday. Errol and I had a picnic on the mountain, then visited the monastery, petted the nuns' goats, held hands and were happy together. A wonderful birthday. The year was 2013.
I still want to read books, walk with dogs, watch the sun rise over the mountains, take pictures of magnificent clouds, glorious sunsets, and spending time with friends. And, of course, blog, although I haven't done that much of it in the past year. I'm hoping this challenge will change that.
You is much much more than 'okay'!ReplyDelete

Hi Inger - it sounds like a wonderful day .. and one you remember so well. Love the photo ... and your thoughts here - it's great you're still planning your days and enjoying them, despite the loss of your beloved Errol ...ReplyDelete

I manage to walk each date, meet and talk to dogs and read some books when not doing A-Z which is confusing a number of my friends.ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful image of you on a glorious day, full of happiness, smiles, sunshine and great memories.ReplyDelete
You look beautiful and happy.
Enjoy everything you're going to do today.

It sounds as though you are pressing on quite nicely. We are all still out here when you feel like reaching out.ReplyDelete
