What beginning does today represent for you??💜

We are still reflecting on all of the love and emotion from the Candlelight Ceremony last night. Love for our community, love for our amazing volunteers, love for the animals and the deep bonds so many of us share with them. May you all find deep peace- peace in nature, peace in the stillness, peace in your hearts and souls this weekend and in every day!!!

For those who cannot join us tonight, feel free to light a candle at 7pm and know that you are surrounded by the love of many kindred spirits who are celebrating their loved ones at the Bridge 💜

Tidying up last minute preparations and setting our intentions for the Candlelight Ceremony tonight. This year marks 10 years of celebrating our animal friends and having fellowship with the community. For all who attend, we hope that tonight provides a safe space for all those who need to grieve, moments of happy reflection to celebrate the story shared with your animal companion, and the coming together of kindred spirits who understand just how deeply the animals enrich our lives. Love and light to every one of you out there 💜

This week’s nature walk showcases Morven Park in Leesburg. We enjoyed walking here on a somewhat rainy day. It offered a nice variety of paved and also natural trails. I will definitely look forward to coming back as the seasons change in so that we can explore more of the area! (so sorry about my pictures-apparently I was more focused on paparazzing our dogs as opposed to nature! Or perhaps I was just better focusing on nature and being present versus just taking pictures 🤔)

Our cups runneth over! Thank you so much to the James and Boyle families for your added touches to the Companioning Center! You’re all very much woven into the fabric of our lives! 💜

Tails are important for dogs! Check out this great article about how dogs need and use their tails. 🐕💜

iheartdogs.com Anyone who has been around a dog knows that dogs communicate with their tails. Low wagging tails indicate submission. Relaxed waving tails can indicate relaxation and happiness. A stiff and high, slowly waving tail can indicate alertness or aggression. A …

Beautiful Sawyer- enjoying his electro-acupuncture today!!

This week’s nature walk is the Chapman de Mary park in Purcellville. This was a nice walk close to town- not super removed from traffic noise but a pleasant walk along a stream with educational spots about birds and habitat. Also cool for the budding naturalist is that many of the plants and trees are labeled so that we can learn what they are! Even more lovely is the Little Free Library there!!!

Some gentle encouragement as we make our way through the work week!!! 💜

Spring is just around the corner- get inspired and get out of doors this weekend!

Sage wisdom for the grieving heart...

Spring is steadily arriving. Let's try to set some inspiration highlighting some nature walks in our area!! Here is our walk at Rust Sanctuary in Leesburg- cannot wait to see how it changes in the spring. It was cool to see how the farm land is slowly transitioning to forest. There is also a vernal pool that comes and goes so perhaps we will see it full at another time! Oh, and cheers to whoever left the love rock!!!

We started this week with a clever baby elephant video- start your weekend with a cute baby giraffe!! What do you think he's thinking about??

This is pretty simple but poignant. If you find that you are starting to waffle into the past or the future, take a few deep breaths- feel the air in your lungs, listen to the noises around you, root yourself into the present. Such as great practice to help find peace, especially in tumultuous times like grief and loss. It takes practice but definitely worth the work!!!

Go Winston!!!

I hope everyone got out to play in the snow today!

This is a day late but as spring is running late, I figure I can too! Happy Spring and make every day a Day of Happiness!!! 💜

Safe journey, Sudan ❤️

Herd of 'grieving' ponies keep all-night roadside vigil after motorist kills one of the family

independent.co.uk

Grief is not solely a human experience. Animals grieve as well. I think if we really looked at it, we are not so different from one another after all.

independent.co.uk A herd of “grieving” ponies appeared to keep an all-night roadside vigil after one of their family members was killed by a motorist. Sarah Simmons shared an image of the scene on social media in a bid to urge drivers to slow down in the New Forest, where ponies are allowed to roam freely.

The extraordinary healing powers of music

bbc.com

Last week, we shared how music therapy helped Mayim Bialik and her dad during the last days of his life. Here is a great article about the benefits of music therapy. Through a Dog's Ear and Through a Cat's Ear are options of how music can help to soothe a stressed or anxious pet. Susan Raimond's CD-Wait for the Sunset- is also a great music option for helping to calm stressed humans and pets!!!

bbc.com The US National Institutes of Health is exploring the relationship between music and the brain.

Part of my homework for my Western Herbal Medicine Course through Purple Moon Herb Studies is to start a nature journal. This is mostly self care homework to help my classmates and I to reconnect with the natural world around us and to start looking for some of the medicinal plants we've been learning about in nature. So far, it has been really great! I will start sharing my experiences with you all to help inspire you to find natural spaces around us. Please share your special spaces as well!!!
