Because I had not seen Floppy-ear since mid January, I resigned myself to believing that our brutal winter had claimed her life.
But she showed up today.
I grabbed peanuts and called "here girl." She came, I tossed, she took.
We are now into our fifth year of friendship.

"Amazing things appear in our lives, almost out of nowhere — landscapes, seascapes, forgiveness – and they keep happening; so many vistas and so much healing to give thanks for. Even when we don't cooperate, blessings return to our lives, even in the aftermath of tragedy."
Anne Lamott: Help, Thanks, Wow

To know health, to feel safe, to feel calm in body and mind ...
— Leo in his red flannel pajamas
A Christmas morning walk around the block with Penguin-pajama-wearing Leo collecting and sharing sticks, acorns, and leaves
Floppy-ear greeting me upon our return trip home
Memories of loved ones created throughout this year and the years before —
... to know peace.
Wishing you goodnesses — "the lush province of joy" as poet Charles Wright notes — as we bid 2012 goodbye and turn now to embrace 2013.
