Oh my heart, this post.

Ok is exactly what you did yesterday. It's being and trying and acknowledging and appreciating and maybe even crying and laughing because you're crying and then doing it all again. It's enjoying the sweetness of now, and hoping the bitter won't last forever.

And the deer. Dad always comes when there's space, when we are open and waiting but not grasping. He sees that tenderness in our hearts and knows he can say what he wants to say, and not what we want him to say.

Beautiful, Amy.

Feisty Harriet

This is beautiful, thank you so much for writing and sharing.



Enjoy reading your blog and especially like the nature/hiking pixs. My mom is recovering from a triple bypass and will probably have her pacemaker replaced in September Hoping after that she can start the long process of recovery. Your posts are very inspirational.


Beautiful photos - and Oh, that doe! How wonder-full (and perfectly expressed in your writing).
We have no native land mammals in NZ - but I've had a similar experience when we saw a kiwi in the dusk (but only for a moment - 6 minutes would have been amazing!).
