Celebrate With Love For All Creatures

"My sister birds, you owe much to God, and you must always and in every place give praise to him;
For he has given you freedom to wing through the sky and he has clothed you...

You neither sow nor reap and God feeds you and gives you rivers and mountains for your thirst,
and mountains and valleys for shelter,
and tall trees for your nests.

And although you neither know how to spin or weave, God dresses you and your children,
for the Creator loves you greatly and he dresses you abundantly.

Therefore...always seek to praise God."

From "The Little Flowers of St. Francis"
~ St. Francis of Assisi

As we end one year and enter the next, to whatever spiritual tradition we belong, if any, let us give thanks for what we, too, have received both from God and from one another, and continue into 2012, with Compassion and Empathy in our Hearts for all creatures, great and small.

Waiting For Santa To Bring Fairy...

Raj waits patiently beginning tonight because he doesn't understand the time difference between England and the Pacific Northwest and wants to make sure he doesn't miss Santa when he arrives with Fairy wrapped up all ready for Christmas with him...the rest of the herd (after much eye-rolling and making "cuckoo!" gestures) agreed to bring him food and treats for his vigil. Mum gonna pet him and keep him company cuz she knows how he feels.

Not really.

But she would wait like that for a guinea pig!

Borneo's Jingle Bell - YouTube

Kind of a tear-jerker but we want to remember
Borneo, who passed away only days after this
video was made of him playing with his favorite
Jingle-Bell toy...kind of like we have our mini-bale
hay-tossing contests...Borneo, we miss you...
