A Golden Reminder
It's been exactly six months since Dave and I said goodbye to our old and ailing boxers, Ruby and Ernie. I still miss them every day. I miss goofy Ernie snoring and taking up half the bed, and I miss Ruby doing her "Milk Bone dance" after her walk, when she knew a treat would be forthcoming.
Dave and I are still pondering getting another dog. As I've mentioned, though, we want to wait until we've lived in London a bit longer. That way, we can travel and explore without worrying about dog care, and perhaps wait until we live in more dog-friendly accommodations. (A back garden would be nice!)
On Thursday evening, I found this incredible spray of golden light across our bedroom wall, and across the framed photos of Ernie and Ruby that hang there. That's when it occurred to me we were then days away from the six-month mark. I don't really believe in communications from beyond, or anything like that -- but it was a nice reminder, and I'll concede that the universe works in mysterious ways!
