Blogging Friends.... I am a bit behind in commenting on all of your Blogs. For which I sincerely apologize!! This week has been seemingly busy around here, and, on top of everything keeping us occupied, I'm on some Top-Secret quest. It has required losing my sanity, in a positive way!! More shall be revealed on Beautifully Unique later!! Meanwhile. Today is a very special anniversary for me. January 16th. It's a day when my heart is filled in an abundance of nostalgic feelings. And memories simply flow like blood through one's veins. Thirteen years ago today, an amazing dream of mine became reality. How so? I became a first-time dog owner!! For thirteen years ago today, Shadow Sunshine was placed in my life!! And nothing again would ever remain the same, because I will now always have a canine!! This poem--which I composed in 2010--expresses how our lives were intertwined.... Shadow and mine....
I will never forget;
That afternoon we met;
How you ran outside to greet me;
As though knowing we're family;
I'll remember too;
How Winter winds blew;
During church service the lights went out;
And I have absolute zero doubts;
That this was God weaving;
His Amazing Planning;
For their sanctuary went black;
Taking everybody aback;
So we fled toward their gym;
And sang beautiful hymns;
Then someone was giving away his canine;
Which is the story of when you became mine!
Happy Gotcha Day, Sweet Sunshine. I miss you still.
