Critters and Things That Go Boo

Welcome to 

Happiness for our critters
is defined in many non material ways.
Unless you're referring to balls and bones
of course.

Or ice cream for that matter.

Ice cream licks are the best ever!

Their ability to love
and share compassion,
and their capacity to allow us to feel joy
 spreads endlessly to every moment of our day.

We know their life 
serves a purpose, 
and a connection to us all
so that together
our love and creative powers
 spread over the universe.

A strange thing happened on the way to my bookshelf-


Thank goodness for all the silly 
critters we meet too,
because it brings
 inner fulfillment to all!

Yikes. Did those feet just move?

"Happy to meet you.  Are you a real person inside of there?"

A wee bit spooky there kiddo!

Horrifying, eerie, creepy, spine-chilling something!

"Words are clothes that thoughts wear."
Samuel Butler

Meet a musical playing,
Hair-raising, long-haired hairy Elmo!

"Beware of the night, child.  All cats are black in the dark!"
(even wooden ones)
Jean Genet

From my house to your house 
and all across Bloggerland
Happy weekend
 to all and
take good care of you! 
Thanks for stopping by.

I think you had fun putting this post together Karen ☺ Who doesn't love ice cream licks 😊 Critters add so much to our lives, both much joy and also so much sadness when they pass, but they teach us how stay in touch with our emotions. I think Halloween is going to be lots of fun in your house 😀
