Since I lost my brother I’ve felt so different that I hardly feel like myself; and when Jon asked me this morning if I’d like to take a walk around the yard to talk about our plans and dreams for the property I gladly accepted. I need to know that I can still find joy in the small moments and in the beauty around me.
We walked and talked about filling here and there, adding gravel to the laneway and where I want to put more gardens. We talked about plans for the barn and other buildings and where we’re going to plant more trees.
I found it reassuring to find comfort in his voice and in the plans we keep talking about. It’s good to enjoy the dogs playing; the sun shining and the fresh almost end of winter air.
With my camera in hand I found little bits of beauty in the way the shadows play against the wood in the barn and in the way the dogs run around the snow and mud without a care in the world.
While I struggle with the loss of my brother it’s good to know that there’s still beauty for me to see and share. Here are a few of the photos I took on our walk this morning....they're nothing special - just little reminders that life goes on and that there is beauty and joy in my life still.

|I love the light and shadows in this photo!|
|I know Jon wishes our barn has less daylight,|
but I find it fascinating just the way it is.
|Meg - all healthy again..yay!|
