Animals have souls, yes they do!

All you have to do is look into their eyes.  Plus, most mythologies say animals have a soul.  Some say that they wait for you at the light, at the end of a tunnel or on a rainbow bridge.  I love that thought and I’d love to see my husband along with my sweet golden retrievers waiting for me.

I believe when Norse mythology says that animals are the windows into our world just like Odin’s ravens, Hugin y Munin, flying around and going back to tell him everything about what we say and what we do or don’t do. And I like that thought too.

A soul.  A spirit.  The essence of everything that inhabits this planet.  The energy that never dies.  That’s what every living creature has and exactly what remains after giving its last breath.

Once you cross over, it seems you know everything.  You understand everything and know when your loved ones are going to die; otherwise, why would you wait for them when their time comes?

I like that and I so hope that not only will my husband wait for me there, but also my beloved goldens wagging their tails and me finally understanding what their woofs mean.

All God's creatures have souls.

All God’s creatures have souls… just look into their eyes and you’ll see it.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Work? Optional!.”

If money were not an issue I would just up and leave. I’d grab my sweet golden retriever, Sophie, and go find the perfect beach front house to call home until the universe decides I had enough of this life.

Gosh, the thought of waking up every morning and enjoying a walk on the beach would be absolutely amazing to me. Especially the part about not having to worry about what clothes to wear or about what time it is.

I would spend the rest of my life barefoot… physically and emotionally.

Wouldn’t that be grand?

Let’s go barefoot!
