I’ve been part of a Photo Challenge for a few years now. I used to participate pretty regularly, but haven’t for quite a long time now. There is no better time than the present, right? Right! Well, the first one of the year is “Resolved”. I have been thinking about it since I read it a week ago. It has been sailing in and out and around my brain.
I am not a big resolution maker when the new year comes. To be quite honest, I am not a good self goal keeper at all. I usually accomplish for others, but not always myself. I think that is why I have found this so hard.
I have even looked up the word several times in the dictionary and read it over and over. This is what it says…
I know it’s a lot, but you can see where my struggle has been.
Well, this is what I have come up with…
Paladin – Our 13-year-old Dog – Sick with Valley Fever
He has been sick now for almost 2 years. Each night I kiss him good night, give him love and a good scratch. I am resolved to let him go and hope each day that he goes in his sleep. He has to be carried outside to potty, as his back legs are paralyzed from this disease from the hips down. He is in no pain, but I know each day that he is as frustrated as I am that he can’t get himself around. He is here in our home and surrounded by love each and every day. 🙂
