19 Squirrels

Sunday, December 23, 2018

My morning walking meditation is my favorite part of the day . It makes a huge difference for me to do this every single day no matter what , no matter the weather, no matter in my state of mind . It always makes it a better day. Today I took a different route and I actually saw 19 squirrels on this walk ! For some reason the squirrels always make me happy , and remind me to laugh at life . The most I had ever seen before today on the walk was six . Quite a difference ! I also saw three Blue Jays playing and chasing each other which is pretty entertaining to watch . Took me a few days this week to realize why I was emotionally up-and-down , and then I remembered what the date was , lost my brother 17 years ago on the 21st . Between losing him and losing my daughter, Christmas has not been an easy thing for a while now . But when I take those kinds of walks and I see all the squirrels and the birds playing, and I remember how much I have to be grateful for , it's really hard not to smile . So I am grateful for today!!

    Squirrels are so cute; their tails are so floof! We've been putting birdseed out in our backyard for the birds, but the squirrels like it too.

    I so miss our early morning walks (me & Daisy). We are still getting out most days but the mornings are just a bit too cold and dark. I also love watching the squirrels - they seem so happy. The other morning as I was going out in the back yard with Daisy I found a walnut set on the door frame of our back door - I guess some little squirrel thought that was a safe place to hide his stash! The neighbor has a walnut tree and the squirrels were so busy last fall collecting them and hiding them all over the yard!

    emoticon Meditation is so good for healing. We feed the birds everyday. I really enjoy watching them and the squirrels and other animals as well.

    Walking is my best therapy and I do it in honor of all those I miss. They would want me to be happy, and I really try my best. Big hug.
