Ode To November

Ode to November

November first flew past me without a Rabbit Rabbit post, but here’s a quick reminder in case you’re new or couldn’t remember why I say Rabbit Rabbit.  Did you miss me?  Because I’ve missed all of you and I hope you are doing well!

November is a busy month as we begin planning for the holidays.  It’s also a melancholy month as we remember those who have passed.  November first is All Saint’s Day and coincidentally the birthdate of my late Father.  November fourth marks the passing of my beloved Uncle as well.

Onward sparks the holiday of Thanksgiving where gratitude for who we have in our lives, both past and present, and for all the blessings that have been bestowed on us are appreciated.  Family meals and traditions continue through the rest of the year with much anticipation.  Are you beginning to think about the holiday season which is coming upon us with rapid speed?

We have a limited time here on this planet and we really never know how long we have, so we need to make the most of today, this precious present moment, for that’s all we can truly count on.  Embrace those loving souls in your life for whom you are grateful.  Take time to quiet your mind and listen to the inner wisdom that you already have.  Reach out to help others and be kind.  Find the gratitude for all you have in your life because those little things sometimes mean more that you’ll ever know.

I’m reminded of a Bible quote my Mom says,

“This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad.” 

To me, it sounds like the perfect plan for a blessed Sunday so I thought I’d pass it along to you too.  May your day be filled with precious moments of love, kindness, health and goodness.

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit July 1st!

RabbitRabbitJuly1st

Welcome back to a timely Rabbit Rabbit starring my favorite little outside bunny Clover!  While she’s not white, she’s so sweet and not afraid of me, which of course, makes my heart sing with joy!  We can sit quite companionably outside in the sunshine without her fearing me.  I have seen her with another bigger bunny recently, but that one and I have not met yet.  We shall see.  Perhaps we will have baby bunnies here?  Wouldn’t that be luck for the month of July!  Imagine all those pattering rabbit feet hopping across my grass!  I can only imagine how delightful that would be!

I hope you all have a lovely month ahead filled with all that this wonderful life has to offer.  Stay present and kind.  Shine your heartlights.  Be grateful for what we have in this present moment and allow the presence of peace to be yours.

Shine On!

Another Belated Rabbit Rabbit

anotherbelatedrabbitrabbit

Well my friends, it’s another belated Rabbit Rabbit post.  I have been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to tend to my blog, nor to check in on my sweet blogging friends.  I hope that all of you are doing well!  One of these days I will be able to have some time to catch up, but in the meantime, please know that I still am saying Rabbit Rabbit every first of the month and I hope you are too!

What I’ve learned recently (and I’ve known for quite some time) is that change is inevitable and it pushes us out of our comfort zones in ways in which we would never have learned those life lessons.  Even when we are in the midst of an upheaval, life goes on.  Daily life continues with all of its responsibilities.  Onward marching as the days go by and we are just a blip in this big Universe.

To those who are close with us, we are not just a blip, but an integral part in the world that we’ve created.  A microcosm in our soul family unit.  Our place in that small portion of the Universe is important and for that, I’m grateful.

Situations challenge us to learn those soul lessons of forgiveness, empathy, compassion, kindness and loving acceptance even when the struggles to find them are real.  Holding onto the poison of the past helps no one, especially those of us who find that allowing and letting go are the keys to health, peace and love in our daily lives.  Counting our blessings and appreciating all that we have spiritually helps beyond measure in healing.  Expanding our hearts to hold the heartlights of those who have taught us these life lessons is key to moving forward in our soul journey towards the light.

Allow me to embrace you all as we continue to shine our heartlights!  I hope that what’s left of June continues with peace and love for you.  If you’re having some challenges, remember that change is inevitable and can many times be helpful even when we can’t see how or why at the present moment.

Shine On!

Happy Belated Bunny

I’ve been remiss in writing lately.  It’s been busy here and I missed our Rabbit Rabbit for the month of April!  I’m so sorry!  Did you miss my friendly reminder?  Did you remember to say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit?  Well, here’s your reminder for May!  Make sure you say it!

This is Clover, my resident bunny.  This was taken in April before the spring garden cleaning, hence the sticks and tall grass.  Since the photo, we’ve started getting the yard ready for Spring.  Have you started too?

Clover has grown and it’s so great to see her out and about now that Spring has sprung!  She’s not fearful at all of me which I find endearing and I’m careful not to scare her either.  However, her friend Mr. Grumpy Gopher (at least that’s what I think he is – or maybe he’s a groundhog?) doesn’t stick around to see if I’m going to talk sweetly with him.  As soon as he sees me, he scampers off as fast as his fat belly allows him!

Do you have a lot of wildlife in your yard?  I’ve been hearing the birds lately too, especially the cardinals.  All the fun of Spring growth is here and I can’t wait for the warm weather to not just tease us but actually arrive!

Here come the May flowers!  Keep shining your heartlights!  We need all the sunshine and warmth that our hearts can share!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit March 1st

Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

With snow on the ground and some in the air, what a way to begin March!  As you may remember, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb!  But since it’s March First, you know what we do here – say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

Traditions are comforting at times.  There’s something about a fresh start every month to light the way, especially as we await Spring.  Of course, every day is a fresh start, every moment can be a fresh start so that’s not all that unusual.  I think it’s what you make of the fresh start that’s important.  Don’t you?

So today, as with every first of the month, I say, Rabbit Rabbit to you all!  May the coming month be filled with love, light and luck!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit February 1st!

rabbitrabbitfeb1

Well for those of you familiar with my blog, you knew what post I would be delivering today, right?  Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

I like traditions, but I also like spontaneity.  I woke up this morning to a text from a dear friend reminding me Rabbit Rabbit!  It put a huge smile on my face to begin my day!  Isn’t that what friendship, traditions and life is all about?  Thank you ML!

We’re very chilly here and I’m snuggled up like a baby bunny in a blanket!  I hope that you are warm, healthy and happy wherever you are!  Take a moment to remember Rabbit Rabbit – it will put a smile on your face and who knows?  Maybe it will bring you extra luck this month!  We could all use that, couldn’t we?

Keep your heartlights shining!

Shine On!
