It’s been awhile since I’ve written in my blog. Lots of good reasons, lots of choices, some excuses… Life continues to be good. Very good, indeed.
In recent weeks, I’ve enjoyed the rich combination of great joys and real sorrows. It’s a reminder about the circle of life. We all have our moment to make the most of this precious life. As I heard this song on my Apple Music mix for the day, I thought of the many experiences I’ve lived through in the past 10 years.
None of my life experiences were pre-ordained, all were the result of a choice I made, and all of them led me to this moment.
And each of them was shared with two furry creatures who have been with me through thick and thin, through addiction and recovery, through the dark days and the new mornings, through geographies, lovers, friends, love, loss, victory and defeat.
And for where I am today, I’m grateful.
As we all begin to age, we begin to feel and show our age. I, with my constipation and reading glasses… Hunter, with aching bones, pain and nerve issues.
I love you Hunter Max.
Thank you for reminding me of the simple pleasures of being more fully in each moment. I love your jagged smile, your gimp leg, your growling and your deep moans of love and affection.
You continue to bring great joy into our lives, from that very first day in Puerto Rico when you wandered into our lives. Your days and weeks here with us are numbered.
It’s a reminder of the circle of life…neither good nor bad, just the circle of life…
You remind me to always stay humble and kind….
