LP, "I found a few pics of the angels in the cottage recently which I thought I would share with you. Since we are at the cusp of the Thanksgiving weekend here in Vancouver , I am always prone to reflecting on what I am thankful for in my life. There is quite a bit to be thankful for in my life. I am aware of that more and more with each passing year. I am certain when you look in your heart , no matter where you find yourself in the world, you will see we , each one of us sees, that we are thankful for the exact same things ; Peace, Health, Shelter , Love , Family, Friends. I am particularly thankful for Masala, Allegra and Lewis. Each of them has now collected their angel wings. When they were here on earth sharing different stages of my life I know without a grain of doubt , that had they not shared those periods of my life with me, my life would have been less colourful, less lived , less joy filled. When I think of these three , I am rarely sorrowful , rather, I feel blessed that each of them saved my heart from growing small, hard or bitter. Knowing them, permitting their essence to honestly enter my reality , ensured that I never became an indifferent person. I never became a person who shied away from fully living and feeling life with everything it gives and takes away from us. I never became a person who believed I had all the answers because how can you explain an animal's unconditional love? The memory of Masala's , Allegra's and Lewis' purity of spirit continues to breath innocent life back into my at times faltering heart and for that I will always be humbly thankful.
Have a happy Thanksgiving fellow Canadians.
Give thanks .
Have a happy weekend fellow friends.
See you Monday.
