Breakfast with Zoe

I have a beagle named Zoe. I got her after my other beagle, Triskette, died of old age. When I saw her for the first time, I was overcome. She looks almost identical to how Triskette looked but her personality is her own.

Every morning, she sits in my lap while I have my coffee ritual. It’s my time for meditation, while the house is quiet. I hold her on my lap and remember the past, feel the present, and ponder the future. God is with us in that moment.
