LOVE... too big to hold on to!

Mr.Nut Guiding Light

Today Mr.Nut is running all over the living room and jumping against the front door wanting to go outside.  His brothers, Sweet Pea and Bucky (II) are settled in the neighborhood and come back for food and water and the occasional nap in the release cage.  It is mid December and we haven't really gotten to the cold weather yet.  Since he needs to spend 3 to 4 weeks in the release cage prior to full freedom, I can't really do that until the winter is over.

I am now clearly seeing my attachment to this sweet sweet soul, my beloved Mr.Nut.  At this same time a year ago, I was facing the death of my beloved Bucky squirrel.  He left this earth on Christmas Eve;  a tumor called an odontoma invaded his sinus cavity and he could no longer breathe. When Bucky flew back to the Sun, I experienced the vastness of LOVE and had the experience that no one can ever leave...
consciousness never dies!

Isn't it interesting how LOVE is just too big to hold on to? I can't hold on to Mr.Nut... he is LOVE in a little squirrel body and he goes with the flow.  And it looks like the flow is for him to join his brothers outside...

We just never know how long we have with anyone...  a friend, a spouse, a beloved animal, a baby squirrel! That's a great reason to be totally present with them when they are beside us and let them know how much we love them!

I know the time is short for Mr.Nut to be living in the house with me and I am grateful every night when I tuck him in and rub his furry belly!  Ah... to be this intimate with a little squirrel is HEAVEN!...
