Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation


One year ago my best friend passed away.  The last time I walked through these woods, I was with Maisie and Annie and she and I had just finished a phone call.  I knew it was bad, but I didn’t know that I would never see or talk to her again.  I haven’t been back to these woods since then because they remind me of her.

Today I went back.  It was time to see this beautiful place again.  This time with Maisie, Annie and Winn.  My daughter also came with me and as we walked I was able to breathe the air, smell the leaves and think of my friend and enjoy this place once again.

I’m so thankful for this transformation in my heart.  The passage of time helps, but being with my three dogs and my lovely daughter made it easier to venture in and embrace the  natural beauty that surrounded us.

  1. I’m so sorry about your friend. I understand how hard that can be, to go back to a place that reminds you of her. I bet a tiny bit of her is right there in those woods and I bet she was happy to see you there.

  2. My heart just expanded hugely to make room for two wildly different feelings:
    Deep sadness for your loss…I can’t even imagine the pain I would feel if I lost my best friend. And
    Great joy, that you had your dogs and daughter to share your revisit to with.
