It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and take flight with a butterfly.

BUTTERFLY WINGS

Oh you beautiful butterfly
Those wings can take you oh so high
Oh to have those butterfly wings
Oh what joy they must bring

Oh butterfly with wings so great
Can you fly beyond the golden gate?
Please find my dear beloved sis
And give her a big butterfly kiss

A Different View

A DIFFERENT VIEW

God created all the animals
THEN he created man
Trusting us with dominion over them
That was his beautiful plan

Dominion means power & control
Authority, command & sway
Is your view of that bad?
Because that is not God’s way

It’s How You React That Matters

Today was Cino’s annual vet appointment. Not something I enjoy and certainly not something Cino enjoys.

You’ve heard these sayings:

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”
“The glass is half empty or the glass is half full”
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”

Well how I have always dealt with her annual appointment is with anxiety and protective mama instincts. I was more or less seeing the vet as a “bad place.” I just want to get in and out as fast as possible.

It is true that God brings good out of every bad situation. If you recall last year I had to take Cino in for an ultrasound and I was worried sick. I did a lot of praying and God was certainly there. I don’t usually talk to anybody when I am at the clinic with Cino. I am too busy being nervous and “protecting” her. But at this appointment while in the waiting room waiting to be called in for the ultrasound there was a couple of other worried pet parents there and we talked. We kept each other company and helped calm each other’s nerves. And all of the staff was very kind, gentle, and understanding. So even though that appointment was a very scary one, it taught me something…that my vet isn’t a “bad place.”

So this time for her annual check up I did things differently. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Centaur

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and enjoy amazing talent.

If you live where there is snow you have probably gone to events where they have snow sculptures. This talent amazes me.

Well I didn’t even have to go to an event this year. Someone made this incredible centaur in their front yard right in my neighborhood.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Music…It Moves The Soul

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let some music take you away.

I watched the movie “August Rush” on Netflix recently and it moved me to tears. This movie is about a little boy who lives in an orphanage and he runs away to look for his parents. His parents are musicians and he is a music prodigy. Aside of the fact that the plot of the movie is incredibly heartwarming, the music they play throughout is beautiful! I found myself crying and filled with goosebumps at times. Music has a way of doing that doesn’t it?

We all have certain songs that really move us. One of mine is Continue reading

Why I Do What I Do

As an animal advocate it can be frustrating feeling like you have to defend yourself. When people don’t feel the same passion that you do about, anything really, it is hard for them to understand. To me, when it comes to something like the well-being of another living being, I truly can’t understand how they can’t feel the same way. So as you can see, the “not understanding” goes both ways.
