What We Do In Life – Three Day Quote Challenge

Three Day Quote Challenge Day Three

 

We would like to thank Tippy Tales for nominating us to take part in the Three Day Quote Challenge.

When we were looking for a quote to complete our third day of the challenge I pointed my paw at the one below. This quote by Banksy seemed very poignant now that I have reached another crossroad in my life.

I can no longer do all the things I loved doing when I was younger. I can no longer run up the crags and the hills like a goat. I still love being of service to our pack and support Eivor and Pearl with my love and the wisdom I have garnered over the years.

Our companions allow me to choose when I want to join in on the walks and when I prefer to rest and sleep for a while. We walk on the lower side of the hills, in the glens and on the beaches where it is easier for me to breathe.

I am taking everything in and am grateful for the magic in every moment we spend together. I want to create happy memories which I can take with me when it is time for me to go.

So here is my quote for you, I hope you enjoy it.

“What we do in life echoes in eternity.” (Banksy)

One Genuine Insight – Three Day Quote Challenge

Three Day Quote Challenge Day Two

 

We would like to thank Tippy Tales for nominating us to take part in the Three Day Quote Challenge.

I used to bark often and loudly when I had something to say. I realise now that our companions can always hear me, even when I whisper. When I came across the quote below it immediately rang true. I hope you will enjoy it too.

“Sometimes one genuine insight is worth all your previous experiences in life.” (Sydney Banks)

The quote I have borrowed and am sharing here today is one of my favourites:

A Golden Star Rises

Every morning she has a smile on her face and wags her tail by the front door. She nudges our companion’s hand as if to reassure her.

Ruby’s eyes are very bright and the energy around her head is sparkling with little stars. She looks as if she is preparing for ascension.

“I will be with you on every walk as long as my body can walk,” she says. “My love and everything I taught you will always stay with you.”

The forest smells of pine, woods and berries. The breeze is chilly and we are kept warm in our coats. Seamus and I are guarding Ruby now her life force is starting to fade.

We all feel this is a precious and special time. Seamus and I are holding Ruby in our hearts and in our love. We want her to feel comfortable and give her the space to leave when she is ready.

Our dog beds are making a strange rustling noise when we lie down and their soft covers are carried to the washing machine several times a day. Ruby is leaving damp patches and we know she cannot help it.

Every morning she has a smile on her face and wags her tail by the front door. She nudges our companion’s hand as if to reassure her.

Ruby gets a surge of energy and our companions take us to her favorite places. The beautiful bay with the seals basking in the sun, the forest trails, the streams she would bathe in and the lochs she loves to watch over.

Today the ground feels soft as we walk by the river and the tide is flowing out fast.

When we get home Ruby has a roll, turns on her side and falls asleep with a big smile on her face. The sun breaks through the cloud and a shaft of golden light surrounds her.

A golden star rises and surrounds us with love. Ruby looks so peaceful and helps us feel peaceful ourselves.

I am so grateful for the time we had together and feel so blessed to have known her.

Run free Ruby.

Love and peace,

Eivor
