Good morning. It's Wednesday! We're up and at 'em bright and early this morning, but always have enough time to wish all you awesome Friends of Rikki's Refuge a wonderful day!
I wonder why Wednesday's child is full of woe? Maybe she knew about all the hungry, unwanted, hurting, scared, lonely and unloved animals out there in the world! It fills us with woe at times. But then, we start every day caring and feeding everyone here at Rikki's Refuge each morning...and we suddenly are reminded (as we are each day) that our continuing mission here at Rikki's Refuge (that we can only do with your help!)....that we make a difference for over 1200 animals every day! Woe to joy. Every day. Purpose, each day. This is a good thing. Wouldn't you agree? So today, we are sharing some of our inspirational "Critter Wisdom from Rikki's Refuge" posters with you....to share a few things these animals have taught us....we had to watch them, listen to them, understand them and love them...to gain this wisdom...to be gifted with the insight that animals already have. We hope you enjoy them.
"Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so that each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry."
"A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature."
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~
"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
“Friends...They cherish one another’s hopes. They are kind to one another’s dreams.”
--Henry David Thoreau--
--Henry David Thoreau--
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear."
“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.”
~~ Mother Teresa ~~
“Hope is a waking dream.”
~~ Aristotle ~~
