Hello dear friends!  It’s that day again.  You know the one – the FIRST of the month and by golly, the time has flown by!  Don’t you think so?  It’s February 1st 2018!  Wowsza!

So here’s my little reminder to make you smile!  Don’t forget to say,

Rabbit, Rabbit,

White Rabbit, White Rabbit

Rabbits January 1st, 2018

rabbits

January 1, 2018 begins a new year and a new month!  So you must have known I would have to mention my beloved rabbit, rabbit, in our conversation!  It’s only fitting I think to start the new year off right!

The lift of spirit comes to me in the early morning hours, holding me close and nestling against my heart.  Part of me is weary and tired and part of me is getting energized like the rabbits for forward movement with hope for a shiny new year on which to make my mark.

I don’t make resolutions as I find them restricting.  Sure I’d love to exercise more, to lose a few pounds and to perhaps be more organized.  But those are goals to me that can be accomplished with discipline.  I’m thinking bigger.

I open my arms to embrace the new year with a full heartlight shining.  My intention is to not allow my heartlight to be dimmed in 2018.

Keep your heartlight shining in 2018 dear friends!  Every day is a choice to shine!  You do it so well and I look forward to seeing you sparkling in my life everyday!
May you have a year filled with wishes fulfilled!  Happy 2018!
Shine On!

What’s Up Doc?

Bugs-Bunny-4

Thank you Merrie Melodies and Warner Brothers for all the giggles and laughs we had along with Bugs Bunny.   I thought on our special Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit day that you’d enjoy a smile along with Bugs and me!

Do you want to go down memory lane with me?  Here’s Bugs’ first appearance!

Here’s to hopping you have a wonderful day! (pun intended)

It’s All Saint’s Day today, along with the famous first of the month, Rabbit, Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit.  You knew I would remind you, didn’t you?  Quickly, say it if you haven’t already!

It’s also my Dad’s unbirthday (I just made that word up).  Unbirthday because he passed away five years ago, but in my mind, as soon as I hear it’s November 1st, I think of him.  Habit, reflex, nostalgia, and being connected with him even years after his passing makes it a significant day on the calendar for me.  I couldn’t help myself as tears welled up in my eyes this morning thinking of him.  Do you think of loved ones on their unbirthdays even though they have already passed away?

I know the veil is thinner at this time and I am praying for a sign from him.  I don’t know why.  Maybe I want validation that he hears me or that he approves of what I’ve done since he’s been gone.  I guess we never really release that approval piece from a parent or at least I haven’t.  Sad to say I guess, but true.  I want him to be proud of me.  I want him to know that I am trying my best under extraordinary strain at times.  I want him to hug me today even though I know he can’t physically.  I want a sign from him.  Even though I am middle-aged, I think sometimes I feel like a little girl.  Does that make sense?  Do you sometimes feel that way or is it just me?

It’s funny how once you’re middle-aged, we begin to parent our own parents too.  We take care of them as they grow older and are less able to take care of themselves.  I see it all the time with my friends whose parents are still here.  Nobody actually prepares us for the ‘sandwich generation’ piece of life.  We just somehow muddle through it with help from friends and people who have experienced it before us.

But that’s our job.  As the generations before us have done for centuries, we take care of the elder generations.  Parents, family members and such, we are their caretakers as they grow older.  Hopefully we do it with grace and dignity so that we are good role models to our own children, and the younger generations so that they can take care of us as well.

Oh what a tangent I’ve gone off on today.  I’m sorry.  My fingers have just been talking on the keyboard while my cheeks remain tear-stained.

But the other night, I went outside to look at the stars and my little bunny Clover hopped by.  He stayed with me for about 20 minutes before I went back in the house.  He even posed for me sweetly as he is wont to do.  You can see his eyes twinkle in the light of the flash.  He sat nearby and just ate the clover in the grass while I talked with him, pouring my heart out to him.  Isn’t it lovely that we have wildlife who care to listen?

Shine On!

The Popular Rabbit, Rabbit!

thepopularrabbitrabbit

I have a bunch of popular posts which I could have never imagined would be the ones that are clicked on most in my stats.  Seemingly innocuous posts are the ones which get the most traffic.  Does that happen to you?

Examples:  My grasshopper one – you may remember, I found a grasshopper in the house.  Or the one about the owl who kept me up at night?  That’s another popular one according to the stats page.  Seeing a shooting star comes up a lot too.  The angelic ones do tend to bring traffic to my site as well.

I think it’s interesting what brings people to our blog posts.  I know that for me, I have been following many of you for years and it feels as if we are friends, even though we’ve never met.  Perhaps that’s the empathetic soul speaking now, but when you blog about something sad or meaningful that has changed your life, I’m there.  When I say I’m keeping you in my prayers, I am.  And frankly, I feel that when you write those things too, you are truthful as well.

Surely this probably won’t be a post you would click on, but I saw the Popular – The Daily Post  prompt and just wanted to write today.

Before I forget, it’s the first of October!  You know what to do, right?

Say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

May October be a beautiful month for you!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit It’s September 1st!

It’s September First and you know what that means, don’t you?

RABBIT RABBIT, WHITE RABBIT WHITE RABBIT

Have you said it yet?  If not, please do because if you know me, you know it’s important.  You can find out here in case you don’t remember.  Above is a photo taken yesterday of my dear little bunny friend whom I’ve named Clover.  She was sunbathing behind the shed between the garage and shed by the patio.  She’s grown quite a bit since I moved here as then she was just a little itty bitty bunny.  She’s getting a bit tamer and allows me to sit outside about 3 feet away from her without being frightened.  She doesn’t run when she sees me coming and if she hops into the yard while I’m out there, she doesn’t scurry away, even if she hears my voice.  And, no, I don’t know if she’s a boy or a girl bunny, so I named her Clover which I think is a neutral name! LOL

I enjoy the wildlife around my home as you may already know.  Even in the new place, I’ve had experiences with honeybees,  geese here and here!  Then there are the previous squatters in my rental home before I moved in who had to leave – Ants, Wasps and Mice Oh My!

Ok, time for spirit totem in case you were wondering…

If Rabbit has hopped into your life:

Rabbit reminds us to examine and utilize the tools we have within ourselves. Although our instincts are innate, they also need nurturing and development. Rabbit meanings deal primarily with abundance, comfort, and vulnerability. Traditionally, rabbits are associated with fertility, sentiment, desire, and procreation.
