The human heart is cable of breaking in so many ways, and for this week’s photo challenge, I give you Speckles. She may be gone, but will never be forgotten. Ten years was not long enough to spend with her, but she died shortly after we made the move from Idaho to North Carolina. In a life filled with pets, she was simply “the one.” Not long after, I wrote a post titled Dear Speckles.
Recently, my blogger friend Mike said good-bye to his beloved Phoenix and Cheryl lost her friend Kerri. This post is for all the pets we have mourned and will mourn, though my heart always fills with happiness when I think of the many things that brought Speckles joy. From all the hikes we took, to the tricks I taught her, to the trill of hanging her head out the car window, she taught me to find joy in the moment.
