Reflection on a #FlashbackFriday
I came across this photo today of Wolfie's beautiful face and it's reflection in our glass patio table, and it was a complete surprise. I was scrolling through the PhotoBooth App on my laptop that I have not used in a couple of years, and to be honest, forgot I even had, only to discover a few pics of my grandkids and my boy Wolfie. To the left of Wolfie (off screen) are my grandchildren, smiling and eating ice cream, with my boy right beside them (and most likely waiting for his fair share of ice cream)!
As I have mentioned before, being the last of my beloved FiveSibes standing did not agree with Wolfie's nature. He missed his pack family desperaetely. Thankfully, after a long period of grief, he bonded with my two young grandchildren, adopting (I believe) them as his new pack family as he was always by their side or at the very least, never too far away. He loved to be wherever they were. This is some amazing feat for a grieving senior dog. This photo reminded me of how much he loved the little ones, and also just how much life has changed. I still miss my gentle boy, and know I alway will.
There are many meanings about reflection here today--in the photo, and as the quote says, transitions are a time for reflection, and this was during a period of transition for all of us on many levels. While at that moment in time, we looked forward to the future and our new adventures waiting for us. I never gave much thought about the inevitable loss of the last of our FiveSibes.
So, I leave you with this: Embrace today, so your future reflections and memories of today will always be fondly remembered while bringing a smile to your face and love to your heart.
