When Dreams Come True

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! 


Hehehe!  See?
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.


  1. That is SO cool... an actual owl and then the arrival of the little one, and his nursery patterned after an owl!! A message, indeed. And your dream really did come true... you got snow! Yay!

  2. This post has to be one of the most beautiful ones I have ever read! May the New Year be filled with many Blessings for all of you!
    Lots of love to you and your family, Gloria and Miss Mindy

  3. Guiness, that was a lovely post! We see owls and red-tailed hawks on our walks. We will think of you and your new nephew from now on!!

  4. HI Guinness
    How exciting that you got your snow and how exciting that you got to see an owl on your walk.

  5. Sometimes the very best gifts don`t come wrapped in paper.

  6. awwwww we hope to share a lot of live with you! Hugs and love,
    Sandra, Dana, Angelina & Daniel, and of course the Labradorks.

  7. Such wonderful, magical happenings. It makes one feel like there is harmony in the universe.


  8. You are so lucky to have seen that owl. Have a great holiday season.


  9. Beautiful! Thank you sister, what a wonderful coincidence.

  10. We agree with Gramps who said "sometimes the best gifts don't come wrapped in paper." We are townies so we only see fairly common birds, but we love the quarrelsome blue jays. So pretty against the snow!

    Cheers and hugs,

    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  11. Beautiful snow, your wish came true. What a teeny cutie pie

  12. What a most wonderful Christmas pressie for your whole family! Mazel tov on the new baby. Owls are wonderful birds; symbols of wisdom, which we hope is an omen for Jesse's future. Merry Christmas to you all! And enjoy your snow!
