Take heart

Jilda and I walked early this morning. It was chilly, so the kids next door opted out to spend a little more time under their warm quilts.

On the first lap, I noticed the trees that line both sides of the barn road had grown thicker almost overnight. Today they formed a canopy that shaded that leg of our trek.

On the first lap, Jilda takes Taz along on a leash. Unlike the other dogs, Taz meanders. She looks for grubs, moles, or any deer poop she can find. It's her belief that it adds to her panache. 

So, while they meandered, I walked ahead, looking for photo ops. Midway down to the barn, I noticed this leaf that had fallen overnight. 

It reminded me that I should always try to take heart even during trying times.


  1. I love it. It is fun to go with you guys on your walks. And yes, we need to take heart, life will continue. Life is also good, esecially when you are secluded with THAT special person.
    Sherry & jack I beat her here today, she is already tucked in.

  2. Thank you for the reminder.
    Stay well,stay safe.

  3. How lovely...not the poop the dog finds but the leaf you did find.

  4. I envy your eye for detail!

  5. It looks like you and Taz have the same mission on your walk. The beauty is all in the details.
    Hugs, Julia

  6. We do heve to remember to take heart in these trying times. What a great reminder you had.

  7. Yes... Take heart and live each day with respect and love for what we do have!
    I hope you and Jilda enjoys your walks and the time you have together.
    Happy Easter Roxy
