The sun rises over the farm for another day.
A day of promise and fresh chilled air, a day for walking the dogs and breathing in the smell that is the beginning of Winter here on the farm. Damp wood, frosty grass, wet straw, the scents fill our nostrils and the sounds of the farm ground us. The dogs run ahead barking with each new joyous discovery in the undergrowth, the chickens going about their business in Chicken World, fill the air with the sound of their crowing and chunnering. We look into each others eyes and know we are home.
Together, stronger in our love for each other after each pain filled day we have been through. Even more secure in the knowledge of our ability to each lean on the other whenever it has been needed and thankful for the family, friends and Blogging chums that have helped us each step of the way. I don't need to name you, you know who you are.
We are home together, and the world will slowly start to revolve in the familiar pattern that is our life, there will always be a void but together we have the love that will fill the gap and keep Jessie safe in our hearts forever.
Jessie's Christmas Cactus
that burst into flower on the day of her death and now lives with us.
