Regular long-time readers have noticed, I'm sure, that the actual writing content of LabTails significantly decreased about 18 months ago. Oh, to be sure, I tried to keep up with photos of the canine crew and vignettes of our life with them, but I just didn't have the heart to write the way I once had; real-life sucked the wind from my sails and the life from my soul -- it's been tough. And so it has been for the past two-and-a-half years.
Ahh... but as I noted in yesterday's post, the winds have shifted, and changes are happening -- both in our circumstances and my heart. I'm finally feeling alive again.
Our recent litter, for whatever reason, reminded me of all that's good and right in this world and in our lives. All I need do is glance at the pups to remember that each day brings adventure and fun and things to giggle over and dance about, no matter what the hardships may be. I can smile still.
And that reminder seems to be restoring my heart and mind and soul. I'm feeling more like myself these days.
And I want to write again (for a writer, that's huge).
So thank you, DRRs, for hanging in there with us. Thanks for your patience and perseverance while I've waited for "me" to return. :)
It truly is good to be back. And I'm looking forward to sharing this new season with you (thankfully the last season is behind us).
Here's to grinning and giggling together in the days to come!
'Til next time,
