Astor's First Outing



Astor (just two days old) and his Mom (Cara) are venturing out into the World for the first time. (Notice the patience with which Cara introduces Astor to the new, somewhat confusing, phenomenon of Fences and Gates. [smile])

Sweet, gentle, and tranquil peace attend this Moment in the emergence of a small creature's life experience. At least it is so for me ... and I sincerely hope that some of that was visited to you, Dear Casdok.

Lovingly ...

I do hope that, in the midst of whatever elements of life you have swirling around you, Sweet Lime, this bit of tender beauty gives you a sigh of respite.

Lovingly ...

I remember listening to the joy in my Mother's voice as she talked about her little foals and their antics.

Seeing this brings back sweet memories dear heart.

John-Michael said...

GLEE!! That is what I immediately experienced upon hearing that I brought "sweet memories" to your magnificent Heart, my ever-so-dear Aims. (Golly ... I can't even remember when last I even considered that emotion ... 'glee,' that is.) [smile]

John-Michael said...

I will forward your greeting to Steven and Mary, Precious Suzanne.

I knew that Astor and his Mom would deliver a Smile to your Soul. [smile]

That is such a special relationship that has already developed between them. It is amazing how much Astor can do at only two days old!
Thank you for the "awwws".
Fondly,
Carole

I am moved by the comfortable trust that Astor has in the 'safety zone' created by his Mom. He seems so uninhibited and free!

Such a joy to share these little gems that I know will find a welcome place in a kindred Heart! Your enjoyment of this delights my Spirit, my Dear Sweet Carole.

Lovingly ...
