Who might you open the door for?

In our farmhouse, we have several doors with odd handles.

On one side is a round handle, and on the other is a lever type.

This is because one of our dogs was extraordinarily good at opening doors. Even ones that required pulling towards you.

Sadly she is no longer with us.

Yet her memory remains, especially on the door into my study, which is always awkward to open.

But what about the doors we open for each other?

Sometimes there isn’t even a handle on the other side.

~ I wouldn’t be here today, writing this, except that many people have been generous in opening doors for me over the years. Thank you. 🌿
