The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man. – Charles Darwin
When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I see a soul. – A.D. Williams
Chloe was our last rescue pet…in fact our last 3 guinea pigs have been “rescue” pets. Their owners, for good reason, needed them to find a good home and we welcomed them with open arms. Chloe had a sweet disposition and an adventurous spirit. She had no fear of Big Guy’s “killer bunny” slippers last Christmas. She was also creative – why reach for lunch when you can shimmy your igloo and just perch on top. In fact, she got so good at re-positioning her igloo, that she can stay inside and still get a drink of water. Chloe has certainly left a hole in my heart.
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. – George Orwell
But I must admit I miss you quite terribly. The world is too quiet without you nearby. – Daniel Handler,
I have a habit of filling quiet moments with stupid chatter rather than intelligent vocal contributions to society. – Jessica Thompson
Love is all the small moments. It is what fills the quiet. – Jessica Shrivington
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. ―
We found the way out
The city takes everything it can
But outside the crowds, I can feel my lungs again
– Dark Horses, Switchfoot
I always thought it would be fun to be a city girl, to live right down town with the hustle & bustle, the arts, the neon lights. Turns out, I’m happier living near open spaces.
I love that I can look out my office window and see flocks of geese in the Spring and Fall. I love the sparkle of fresh powder of a crisp winter day. And I love listening to the crickets singing in the evening. I prefer spacious places.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me. – Ps. 18:19 (NIV)
