Happiness is watching your dog play with a new friend.
While on a hike this morning Linus met “Bo” (not his real name) and they chased each other, played in the water and frolicked like long lost friends. Just as quickly as “Bo” appeared, he disappeared into the woods never to be seen again. We were a little sad by his departure.
On the way home Tom said he was tired of always being sad. I agreed. We then chatted about how, even though our hearts will always have sadness and longing for our girls, it was amazing how God also has filled us with so much joy. We both agreed that our morning hike was love drenched and that “Bo” was a big part of those feelings.
Thanks Bo for joining us on our hike today, giving Linus someone to play with and allowing us to feel joy in the midst of our sadness.
Although they were not physically present this morning, Anna and Abigail were definitely with us.
