Hohoho! Guinness here and would you just LOOK at this! HA! Just yesterday I was asking for snow and see what happened!
And just look at Maggi--she feels the snow falling from the sky!
What a peaceful night for a quite walk through the woods! PLEASE! Come along with us?
Gasp! Will-of-the Whisps! Maggi seems to sense the power of the bright Whisps! What in the world could they mean?
We follow the Whisps and they lead us to the clearing. We sit and wait.
WOOOOSH! GACK! What was that??? Something in the dark swooped LOW --and right over our heads!
OH WOW! What a gift --what a rare treat. God has sent us a message.
Do you see the red eyes? It is an OWL! it is near impossible to glimps an owl in the wild. Did you know birds were creatures of omen?
This owl is extremely close and stays for a long time looking down at us. I do not bark. Maggi does not stir. We do not want the magic to end. We sit in the quiet of the moment, in the forest, with the snow following down all around us.
Back in Newfoundland, another gift has just arrived. Remember little baby Oliver--our human's nephew? Well, he is a big boy now--and look who has come for Christmas. His new baby brother Jesse.
And can you guess what his little nursery is decorated with? You guessed it!
I think everyone harping on this "end of the world stuff" got it a bit wrong, don't you think? I think the owl was trying to tell us that this is a year of new beginnings--of new life. And so, I am opening my heart to this new year. May it be filled with love...and LAUGHTER! ...and PEACE and FRIENDSHIP! Thank you for sharing our little journey with us--and if you see any special birds over the holidays--I hope you think of us ...and smile and little smile. Love Guinness.
