Wow, I am exhausted. I hit a hard wall Tuesday afternoon, and it’s been a while since I felt like this. We’ve had a lot going on, but today things will calm (famous last words, LOL!)
Today I want to talk about Halloween. Do you like it? Hate it? Or just don’t care?
Maggie, our dog, LOVES Halloween. So when we got her in October four years ago as a foster dog, Maggie was submissive, unsure and skittish. She trusted me almost from the start, but was unsure of most others. Then Halloween night when kids starting coming to the door, Maggie lit up. It was the first time we’d seen her radiating that pure, sweet doggy joy. She was so excited, she’d deer hop to the door with us, wag her tails and greet the kids. Then she’d look at us with wonder in her eyes, like wow, they came to see me! She literally wore herself out running back and forth with either myself or Wizard. So Maggie definitely loves Halloween.
Wizard and I both love Halloween too. We enjoyed it as kids going trick or treating, as young parents taking out kids out while making sure someone was home to hand out candy to all the neighborhood kids, and going to adult parties. Once our kids grew up, we still love giving out candy. All three of our kids love doing it too.
For us, Halloween has a little magic in it.
How about you?
