Morning Walk – Thankful Thursday

It was a crisp morning, cold enough to encourage a swift walk and yet warm enough to not need that sweater. The two continued down the road, making sure to walk closer together whenever a car passed. There were precious few moments when words were needed and so they continued in companionable silence most of the way there and back again.

The young woman smiled down at the large dog trotting next to her, “I’m glad you’re here to take me on walks every morning.”

I’m grateful for my new walking buddy this week, for without her, I’d sit at home and read all day and get no exercise.

Make sure to read the original Thankful Thursday as well!

  1. What a nice post! Funny, today I looked at a photo of Desirée on my fridge door…my mini schnauzer I had 13 years…she was my companion for a long time…my best walking companion and excuse for my talking out loud to myself…folks just thought I was talking to Dez:)

    • Our dogs have always been later risers than us. I had a cat (who was also white, go figure) who would wake me every morning about that time too by chewing on my feet. No matter how I buried them, he’d dig them out. Was never late to school those years.
