The sun was out up in the sky so blue the seen was set. It was calm and warm too. We took the dogs for a walk a gentle stroll with time to talk.
Running jumping scampering free through the grass and under the trees. Over the log through the mud jump through a hedge landing with a thud!
Laughing and at ease we went down to the river’s edge through the trees. The dogs happy to sniff and mooch around as we two humans happy with the little oasis we had found.
The dogs happily eating grass us girls chatting then a lovely treat went sailing past. We could not believe our luck as we watched seven chicks and their mum a Mandarin Duck. Such a seen of peace is rare we stood and watched a happy pair.
Suddenly a man with two dogs wonders by up jumps Monty with a bark and glint in his eye. The man is smiling he knows it is all a lark he knows that Monty is all bark.
Cheerful words we all exchange so nice to feel that you can talk to other people while out on your walk. Without a dog it is not the same if you dare to speak people wander what is your game.
Time to leave to leave time to go I need to tell my friend I have enjoyed this afternoon so. This is what life is about , a smile a touch. Away from worries away home nice to feel the weight of troubles have flown.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

They are happy healthy dogs
Beautiful moments, that can never be duplicated ever again the same way…cherish them! Loved the underlying message!
Thanks you are so right. Each time we walk the dogs is special. I love the feeling of peace which goes with these precious times
Delightful walk with your dogs and your friend! Yes, people somehow connect so much more comfortably and genuinely in the presence of dogs and babies in strollers!
yes that is so true. Yesterday and today have been truly a gift to me from God to help me through. I hope that does not sound false as it is true.
I like this one Willowdot 🙂
