Meditations....

This has been a sad week...So I have postponed Wednesday Women for this week...The stories coming out of  Colorado have been so heart breaking.....
Many ones of heroism but yet still sad...

The same day I lost my Chicklet... 
I can't even write this without crying...
I know some will think I am crazy to be upset about a chicken...but they are special to me...Chicklet especially...she was my little lady...she followed me everywhere..."talking" to me....helping me with projects...weeding plants... posing for pictures...

We think a coy dog may have gotten her when she wandered out near the woods...Such is the dangers of letting them free range...I will miss her terribly...

 So I have spent alot of time
in the garden....working on the plants...
building the raised gardens...Being close to nature..

 Watching the frogs in the pond...

 Watching the dragonflies play....

 They seem to like the Buddha...


 They even decided to spend some time with me...

 Even my little Molly seemed to sense 
the sadness around ...


I told my kids I loved them very much...I do everytime I see or talk to them...
but I made a special point of it that day...
They are my heart...

I cannot fathom what the parents of the shooting victims are going through...their loss....so immense...so violent...so senseless...
My thoughts & prayers go out to them all...

Lovely post, so sorry for your lose. Anytime we give our love to an animal it is returned 100 times more, your heart will break. I don't think the loss is any lighter with those that aren't considered pets. Love is love your chick was a part of your family, yard and day to day routine.
Take comfort in knowing that chick had a great life with you. Thanks for sharing, Kathy

I'm soooo sorry for your Chicklet....maybe she'll show up again? I know how it is, I get close to my animals too. Things are super strange this week, super strange. I can only say to ground and center to your deepest self and stay detached as much as you can. My heart goes to you. lady

Oh Chicklet! I am so very sorry. Just this week I was telling Darrell how I loved your henny penny girls. I mentioned Chicklet special, I loved her name. It is wonderful how you love.

Colorado. A mystery. Why? Over and over again it breaks my heart. For no reason....i have lost a child. You never get over it.

Compassionate people feel the tragedies of others.

Your home place is especially lovely. Good pics.

Oh Linda
I am so sorry about Chicklet, I completely understand. My furry family is as precious to me as my human friends. I also understand about the balance of letting them outside so they are happy yet trying to keep them safe as well. It is a tough line to hold. Mike and I really feel their lives should be about quality, not just quantity of time living. We let them out everyday and hope and pray they stay safe. When we loose one we try to remember they had a great life running and playing like cats (and in your case chickens) should.
I will send you my prayers for solace and peace.
Blessings to you and your family,
Tricia

I'm so very sorry to hear about poor Chicklet...our animal friends are family, and it cuts to the core to lose one. Hugs to you!!

And I, too, am feeling the same grief about the shootings. I think I mentioned that my 25 year old daughter lives in Denver, and it could have easily happened to her..she has friends who know victims..it's so very scary. My heart aches for their families. It's difficult to blog when the heart is heavy.
