(Day 88) A new day

For the first time since I began this 365 project I'm having to take both a mental and physical break from shooting a daily photo so I can put my focus on being supportive during this time. I'm reaching into my archives to find a photo to post.

This one I took very early one morning from our front yard, as a new day dawned. I find it symbolic of today, the first day where we who remain behind move on without a loved one present, and the first that she who has left this earth has experienced without pain and suffering.

Rick, I'm so sorry for your loss, but as you put it so beautiful in the last 2 posts, and I agree with what you say, Rest in Peace, Pain no more, Safely in the hand of God.
Grieve no more and live your life to the full, my friend.

I'm so pleased I found your blog.

@Krista - yes, I noticed some problems when I tried to post it - I think it took 3 attempts - possibly you were trying to look during that time - I think it's ok now. Thanks for your support.

@darlin - thank you again. Sunrises are a bit rare for me since I tend to work at the other end of the day. But early morning sure has its rewards.
