"I tried once to open too many doors at a time, it was unproductive and confusing.
I just learned the last lesson, Dad. I'm supposed to open just one at a time, and only when I reach them along the path, this 'hike' we are taking. That's when the key fits, and opens the lock perfectly, every time. Thank you, Dad. I love you, and miss you. I am blessed with an amazing husband now, he holds my hand as we walk along paths too. We are climbing a little steeper now, with more effort, and thinner air. But I'm not worried. I am looking up. I am living in the moment, being now. Because when we get to the next door, along our path, I know, Dad, . . . that key is going to fit, perfectly!"

Decaf Sunset

There are two things I am hooked on when evening comes to Florida. My sister-in-law, Odette tuned me in to a night cap of decaf coffee, and the skies call me to watch the sunset.

This evening I dragged along Husband and Izzie. She runs ahead and laughs at us oldsters, as she waits for us to catch up.

Tonight we doubled back to the cows. Curiosity wasn't about the cat tonight.
The whole crew came over to visit, and see 'what the heck' the little furry kid was about. There were quite a few nose touches, and then excited cow back hoof spooks as Izzie visited.

A dapper young bull even let us pet his head. I asked Husband looking at the bull's curious but cautious eyes, "How can anyone eat something so beautiful?"

We all parted ways, hooves to scrub grass, us to fresh green bean vinaigrette and white bean hummus, as the sun set on yet another day.

Beautiful post. :)

'I asked Husband looking at the bull's curious but cautious eyes, "How can anyone eat something so beautiful?"

Yes... even if I'm not vegetarian already I will always choose the "fresh green bean vinaigrette and white bean hummus" over a steak.
