In less than ten days, I will be traveling south to a volunteer position in one of Florida’s many beautiful state parks.
My home on wheels will be taken out of storage, the car hooked up to the tow bar in back, the kayak strapped to the roof of the car and Ohio will be in my rearview mirror.
These past couple of months, I have enjoyed staying with family, completing various sewing projects and getting some necessary repairs on my RV.
The family has seven rescued dogs who share their home. All are quite small, ranging in size from 7 to 17 lbs. They all have distinctive personalities ranging from laid back to frenzied and curious to curiouser.
There is one, however, who has my heart. Leo with his trademark one ear up and one ear down, is the little guy who runs in from his outdoor ramblings, charges up the stairs to my room and jumps on my bed for a snuggle, a massage or to sink into a glorious mid-morning nap.
There will always be
The special ones
We carry in our hearts,
No matter time or place,
In a continuum of love.
