Farewell

I said goodbye to a friend today.

His name was Sam,

And he was larger than life,

A bear of a dog,

Gentle and fierce…

He protected his family’s heart through the many transitions of life,

And he continues to do so,

Although his bark now is only heard by angels.

.

We love.

part of the consequences of loving well, and loving deeply, are joy and suffering.

But the suffering, no matter how sharp the pain in the moment,

Is nothing compared to the Joy.

So…

Grieve.

Howl.

Clean your soul til is sparkles…

And in time the

Joy will return.

It all ways does.

.

And the whole world is a little better than it was before Your Love.
