IT’S OKAY TO SOMETIMES ACT SQUIRRELY

I admit I have a love-hate relationship

with squirrels.

Some days they’re cute and funny,

other days they’re a nuisance

as they attack our bird feeders.

Most days they’re just plain squirrels —

jumpy, nutty, flighty, unpredictable,

scurrying around in a mildly insane manner.

But let me admit something right here —

the other day when I was scurrying around

being flighty, acting a little nutty,

maybe acting mildly insane,

like I do on occasion….

I thought, “Just look at me. I’m acting squirrely.”

My dad had another name for it —

“Acting like a chicken with its head cut off.”

But you know what?

Sometimes it’s okay.

There’s no reason to fret about it.

That’s who I am.

And I give myself permission

to be a little crazy sometimes — a little squirrely.

After all, if the squirrels can act squirrely,

so can I.

  1. Ok, Dr Joy Finder….
    I’ll try to think more kindly of these otherwise troublesome critters, and , if I could, would ship them off for you & Mur to enjoy…
    Thanks for giving us the green light to “act squirrely” 😊. Loved it ❤️
