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.
Walk this way, don’t turn astray
And you shall surely find your way.
Laugh and sing and dance
Keep your heart open for a chance.
Weather will come and change quite quickly.
Always remember that life will swallow you thickly
Yet inside, you will always hold a spark of light.
And never forget, it wasn’t put there for spite.
Others have walked this way aplenty,
Never fearing that they were acting the fool,
Because in life, no one is a tool.
So walk this way and never forget,
Life isn’t through with death just yet.
So though the snow may fall,
God still loves us all.
