Night Bunny

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!

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.

Shine On!
