- A little walk around the block can make all the difference in the world. I have been amazed at how good it feels to take our fifteen minute walk to start and end the day. I've always been a "don't talk to me before I've had my coffee kind of person, but now by the time I'm pouring my cup, I've already walked Sophie. By the end of the day, I usually feel wiped. The tasks of the day are still swirling around in my head. However, I go for a little loop in the neighborhood and it all melts away.
Here's to a new year where Sophie and I can continue learning to trust each other and I continue to be challenged by having such a wonderful little creature in my life.
