I stayed home from work today and spent it with Hamlet who is not doing so well. I sat on the front porch with him and the other dogs enjoying a beautiful sunny morning where there were birds singing and a breeze. Hamlet who was sleeping on the porch lifted his head and closing his eyes, sniffed the air that was blowing on his face. As I watched him, the wind seemed to whisper in my ear that his time to leave us is drawing near. Of course I don't know when that will be. So I wait for this most un-welcomed guest and pray for more time and peace.
