SO FAR, YET SO CLOSE...

It was only yesterday that I saw her gamboling in the woods in an almost wingless flight, mane bouncing in rhythm with the wind and her flagged tail assuring me that her spirits were high. A sparkle encircled her as she navigated the massive trees and their fallen limbs without so much as a horsehair skimming the bark. I could feel her, but I couldn't touch her. I could sense the motion, but I couldn't ride her. In reality, it must have been in the dark hours of the breaking dawn when her beauty, once again, left me awestruck, but in my dream it was a sunlit day. Meadow, always by my side, was also there. I could feel her, but I couldn't touch her.

In memory. Sabrina, Christmas Eve, 2011. Meadow, February 3, 2012.

beautiful writing,
so sorry for the loss of these loved ones, who let you know in the dream state that they are faring well.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how it feels to be grief stricken over the loss of a beloved pet. They are such a part of our family. Take your time before you get another dog. I had to wait a year after Roxy died before I got Bella. It took me that long before I could open up my heart once more. Take care!
