I received a notification today that congratulated me on my ninth anniversary of blogging.

Geez. Feels like those years went by rather quickly.

I could say a lot has changed for me in nine years. But you could say the same. I mean, that’s almost a decade. A long time.

Think about a baby being born and then fast forward nine years. Whoa. That’s a whole lot of change taking place.

One thing hasn’t changed and makes me so grateful. I am able to wake up and put my fingers on a keyboard and type away. That’s truly a gift. Each and every day. Not my actual writing. BUT the ability to move my fingers, read, type and comprehend.¬†

I’m also very grateful for YOU. Thank you for following my blog and for your many supportive comments along the way.

Also a big shout out and sincere thanks to my lovely daughter, Hannah, who was just a little kid nine years ago. Now she is a nineteen year old university freshman. It’s a pretty sure bet that if she didn’t set up this blog for me then it never would have happened. She also chose the name and tagline. Not bad for a pipsqueak.

Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend!

Big hugs,

Mary

The first time I ever saw a red fox in the wild was after my Dad died two years ago.

I was with my brothers and we spent the day together-just the three of us- visiting the Cape. My father loved the Cape and so did we. We went to all the usual old haunts. Spent hours reminiscing, laughing and talking about Dad.

We were heading to the beach on the “other side” as we called it. My oldest brother saw it walking through the marshland in a residential area.

Dad and the boys would have seen a fox before because they spent a lot of time on golf courses. I was 50 years old and had never seen one in the wild.

I texted my sister-in-law who is into animal spirit sightings and symbolism. She said something like the fox is representing us as we navigate obstacles, decisions or difficulties. I no longer have the actual text or photo since my phone got swiped.

Found this in a google search.

You may be called to take action in a way that shows your adaptability and ability to move quickly through obstacles and resistance.

Well, that was true because we had a lot of things to take care of after Dad died. It was all new to us.

Why would I be thinking about a fox today?

Couple of evenings ago I was in a local Malaysian neighborhood on my way to visit someone who had just been released from the hospital. As I was walking to the house I saw a big cage with an animal in it on someone’s patio.

The people were just doing normal things one does in a patio. Watering plants, sweeping the ground, etc.

I approached these people and asked, “What’s that in the cage?”

The man said, “It’s a fox.”

I replied, “Really??”

Didn’t look like a fox to me.

He said, “Yes, it’s a fox.”

Okay then. It’s a fox.

I asked lots of questions.

Where did you get it? Kuantan.

Is it nice?  Like can you pet it? Well, it bites.

How old was it when you got it? Five days old.

Did it have siblings? Don’t know.

And on and on. LOL

I never saw a fox that looked like this guy. LOL. So I’m not totally buying it but I will surely take the sighting symbolism just the same.

You may be called to take action in a way that shows your adaptability and ability to move quickly through obstacles and resistance.

Sometimes it is hard for folks to move quickly when faced with things that are challenging.

If there are currently obstacles and resistance in your life I honestly wish you adaptability and the ability to move through them very quickly. Fox sighting or not!
