Chloe and Chancel 2011Writing blog posts is new to me.  I try to do them early in the morning when I first wake and the day is still fairly quiet.  I’ve been looking through old picture files on my computer for inspiration.  As I flick through the images I find my heart “strangely warmed”, as John Wesley would put it.  They are nearly all moments that I want to remember.  Some are funny, some are odd.  But they work as a trigger for an idea to explore.

And so it is with today’s post.  This is a picture of our dogs.  Pat, my partner, would claim the poodle as her own and I definitely belong to the dachshund.  Like most of us, they enjoy each other’s company, until they don’t!   They are jealous for our attention and each finds ways to assert that they are more important than the other. They can be snarkey about food, so much so that we separate them while they eat.  But when the chips are down, they love each other and are able to show it.

My mind wanders here…and I wonder who needs to know that I indeed love them and truly care about them?  Think I’ll pursue that…

Love – It’s not so hard…
