constants and change

I think one of the best parts of life is change....is our ability to evolve. Even as a small child, I loved change. We moved a few times around the country in my early years...and my mother has often told me how I excited I was each time....it was something new, a chance to re-invent myself.





Over the last couple months, I feel like my life has gotten away from me a little bit. I want to fix that...and it will require change. More to come on that....I will say for now that the only way to embrace change, to thrive on it, is to continue to have constants in life...and for me that will always be Sophie...and that will always be Elora.

So nice to hear from you Andrea. Beautiful pictures tonight. I hope you will have a very Merry Christmas. Hugs to Sophie and Elora from Harriet, Kaboodle, Ditto and Magic.

No matter how many curve balls life throws at us, our dogs and cats still love us the same- what a blessing.

I'm not one for change, I like the things in my life to just keep humming along ho hum. My animals keep me pretty much in a no change pattern and that's how I get by.I just love Sophie, I never get tired of that pretty little face.She always looks so soulful.

Sorry to hear that you're going though a difficult time, Andrea. I'm glad you have your furry friends to get you through it.

Those are two beautiful photos. Pets are the best thing to have around when life is throwing change at you.

You seem to know what a pet can mean to a person. When you have time, check out "The Death of Cordelia" on my blog.

And all they ask is for the same in return. So simple. So powerful.

I've missed you.....all. :) But life has different paths to follow and sometimes we limit our adventures when we follow only one. Nice to see you, dear heart.
