Today it is a cloudy sort of day. We are on our way home from going to the vet’s office for a follow up. I think the rainbow in the distance is the universe’s way of telling us, everything is going to be okay. I like to take the back roads home versus the highway so I can get a little peak at the country. I miss seeing the country, especially since I grew up in Indiana. I miss the corn growing in the fields with soybeans and patches of forest throughout. The smell of freshly mown grass on weekend mornings. Yes I moved to get away from the snow and ice and tornadoes, mission accomplished, but there are things I miss. So this drive is my solitude, my version of meditating. Peaceful, quiet, calm and the smell of rain in the distance hitting the hot dirt and dessert sand. I can hear the mumbling thunder in the distance and see the rays of sun beaming through the brooding clouds. I wanted to share a piece of myself, a small piece of my gratitude and mourn for the loss of our Nali and at the same time, life’s little pleasures. She taught us so much, I wish I had learned sooner and hugged her even more. Hug your loved ones and be thankful.
Nali, our girl, our love Thank You, for being the sweetest girl, a little weird, open to new people and experiences and taught us to observe everything and enjoy life’s little pleasures. We love you and miss you everyday.
