My Hero, Elly

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “My Hero.”

The one person who is always glad to see me is the Family Dog, Elly, AKA the Family Dog or FD for short.  When I come home from work, she gets so excited.  Runs and picks up her bone before wiggle waggling her way to me.  As she runs, she makes the cutest orrrowwww sounds.  Homecomings can be a bit overwhelming.

But she is my hero for what she does with the family.  She brings joy to everyone.   Its fun to visit the dog parks.  The happy energy felt at the Del Mar Dog beach is amazing and inspiring. It is hard to not feel that joy watching her run with the other animals.  When we go down to that beach, everyone laughs.  What could ever be better than that.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
