Butler & Jules,
Bless always beautiful, dignified, caring, determined, wise, loving, compassionate, devoted, brave and gentle lady Butler, and Mom Jules, on beloved Butler's 21st birthday.
Cinnamon and I are back again, sweet Butler, this time on your 21st birthday, to honor your tender, loving heart and your gracious, beautiful soul, and to pay tribute to your spirit and life, and the love you share, for all time, with your Mommy Jules and family.
My thoughts and prayers remain with you, Jules, and your beloved Butler. You and your never ending respect and love for, and devotion to Butler, Jules, remain an inspiration to all of your friends here at Critters. I know it's hard for me to understand at times, but it seems to me that in spite of having to deal with so many things in life, I love and miss my angels more, not less, with each passing day.
I know Cinnamon and all of Butler's forever angel friends will assist Butler any way they can, and help her to watch over you, her ever-loving Mom, who she loves so very much.
Bless guardian angel Butler; Mom Jules & family, and your universe of souls, on two legs and four, this day and every day.

HAPPY BIRTDAY BUTLER!!!
As all the children continue to play in the castle smiles appear on their faces, but for a moment Butler stands silent, then wanders through the grand hall toward the north tower ... Luna notices and follows her. As she climbs to the top she realizes she is heading toward something really special. As she enters the room she is immediately drawn towards a chest sitting in the room adorned with brass hinges ... as Butler stands looking at the carved wooden chest she notices a tag attached. As she lifts it to read it says, "Butler, a little something special for your Birthday, Hugs Luna ... just then as she lifts open the lid Butler begins to smile ... then shouts, "It's a Magical ORB!!!" ... and as she speaks it begins to rise, then tiny flickers of light fill the room, she gently lowers her voice then lifts her fist straight to the heart of the room and when she does those rays shine everywhere ... darting out from the windows, reflecting from the walls, they are everywhere. When the last flicker appeared she suddenly noticed she is standing in the same room with her mom! When Luna looked over all she could see was Butler smiling at her mom with those alluring eyes; as she takes a step upon her knee she is so happy she is speechless. All of a sudden you see another flicker of light and Luna appears. She just sits there watching; it's as if they were the only two in the room ... they could hear the faint music from downstairs and began to dancing ~ twirling around the room. The follow the music back to the grand ballroom. When they enter another flicker of light and then the room is filled with many tiny sparkles of light filtering over the dance floor, and one by one they attach themselves to a child, they are each again with the special one to whom they gave their heart ... Luna smiles, then says, "The greatest gift we can give each other is ourselves". They dance through the night knowing we're just a heartbeat away. Sending our love always, Luna & her mom Nadine

Stopping by a few days early for beautiful Butlers Birthday. My father has been in ICU for two weeks so I have not really had any time to get on the computer and not sure if I will get on here on Friday. I just know Butler will have a beautiful birthday celebration with all her friends. I also know she is watching over you with so much love and guarding you from above. Hope you are feeling stronger by the day and sending you many prayers and as always much love!
I wrote this for Butler and it made me smile to take my mind off my father. I can envision this. I hope you can also my friend! Many hugs your way! Happy Birthday to beautiful Butler!
Linda & Milo
There's a gap that lies between heavens hill,
where trees grow tall and time just stands still.
With yellow flowers and dark blue lakes,
That Jesus protects at any stake.
There stands a girl along the wall,
dark and sleek sitting tall.
Her eyes are brown her heart is pure,
Jesus appointed her to guard this more.
The girl stand by each starry night,
watching the moon from the purest light.
She's filled with wisdom the angels all know,
she guards the hills where willows do blow.
Her eyes are dark clear and bright,
she holds no fear inviting the night.
She paces back and forth as she looks below,
sending her love to the woman she knows.
That holds a heart so pure and true,
the angels all know from this sky so blue.
This angel is generous in these hills so wide,
a warrior angel that Jesus did find.
She guards the pumpkins then watches them grow,
sprinkles her stardust to her friend below.
A woman who remains sealed in her heart,
that she sits alongside on each mornings start.
This angel cannot forget from these hills so wide,
who taught her about wisdom of the purest kind.
This week she continues to guard that lake,
her friends watch intensely as they bring her a cake.
For this angel friend they love so dear,
is filled with love and holds no fear.
She turns to see what they place at her feet.
A candle burns slowly within her treat.
they all stand back as she watches in awe,
grabbing the treat with her thin dark paw.
For a warrior cannot be taught without a friend,
she tells them this story from the heavens bend,
of a friend she has known and loves with her heart,
explaining to them they never did art.
The angels applaud as she looks down below,
her eyes grow brighter as the moon starts to glow.
Jesus then smiles then touches her head,
assuring her smiling and whispering again,
that her friend below can never really leave,
she is part of the warrior this she must believe.
The angel then smiles than takes the cake,
the flowers bloom more from the kindness she's made.
She pauses then looks again down below,
sprinkles more stardust on her friend she does know.
The moon fills up brighter for the angels to see,
as she recalls her friend and fondest memory.
Jesus looks down at the world deep below,
waving his hand so the angel will know.
He takes her paw under the moonlit night,
assuring her again her friends not out of sight.
The angel then smiles then walks away,
just knowing they will meet again one day.
Then follows her friends in celebration and pride,
knowing her bond is strong not to hide.
Jesus then waves his arms in the air,
the angel stands up with her sleek black hair,
He bends down to whisper to the angel crowd,
"Listen to me you all take your ground."
He then stands in front commanding them so,
as the yellow flowers bloom under the moonlit glow.
He claps his hand under the midnight sky,
Music fills the air as the angels all fly.
He turns to the angel with love in his eyes,
takes her by the paw lifting her high,
"Come now my warrior and my beautiful friend,
it's time now to do that Time Warp again."

Butler, thinking of you on your angel day and always … its HALLOWEEN and all are Welcome.
Upon a hill nestled between mosey dark grass and bare bark tree sits a castle, not just any castle this one is haunted. Luna peaks out from behind the mirror and shouts, “How do I look?” as she parades around in her witches outfit riding her magical broom … Butler snickers as she repositions her eye patch, places her pirates hat upon her head and stands with her sword pointed, turns to Luna and says, “What do you think?” Luna smiles, and said “You’re one proud pirate” … Butler snickers. Then they hear a few knocks at the front door, and in walks Dale, Luke, Sammy, Princess Baby Girl and Milo. Luna smiles, ah, the decorating committee. There are three huge boxes in the center of the room and they each get busy. Luke drapes the windows, halls and walls with a fine webbing mesh as princess Baby Girl places candles in the wall sconces and chandeliers, Dale is out front digging up a few patches and together with Sammy moving tomb stones in to position. They place a fog machine behind the bushes which give the illusion of spirits and air of mystery. The children all work through the day and by nightfall they are ready.
As all the children gather, the gates open. As they walk along the winding path the winds begin to howl and the moon casts its shadow upon the trees. Slowly they step with a watchful eye, but as they reach the front door it slowly begins to open. They enter and are amazed, this castle was truly transformed! But there is something else, as each child enters they look around and get an overwhelming sense of calm and unity. Butler stands tall and proud at the top of the staircase as she instructs all to enter the ball room … upon entering they notice in the center of the hall is “an amazing light”, it fills the room till you can no longer see it but you can feel the warmth. You see it’s because all the kids parents were invited too! Yes YOU, the kids were overwhelmed and excited. With their hearts full of laughter they dance through the night, as the warmth of our love surrounds them.
After a festive night of Ghost stories, bobbing for apples, a tour of the haunted castle; when they were done playing through the night, dining on candy, good eats and gourmet treats, the sun begins to rise and skies turn blue … they each step out to the garden and whisper to the wind, one by one lift their face to the wind and say, “I will always LOVE YOU”. Meant for all the hearts that long for a touch, you have touched ours. (Hugs) and all our love, Luna & her mom Nadine

Butler, Halloween is approaching and your birthday is almost near …
It begins getting darker, it’s very quiet except for eerie branches swaying as they let go of their few remaining leaves, but nothing goes to waste as a few gusts of wind sends those leaves rustling along the crooked cobble stone path that leads up to a haunted mansion high on the hill.
Luna peeks out from behind a few bushes next to the entry gate and calls to Butler, “Come on Butler … this is what you have been waiting for!” As they walks toward the mansion, Luna noticed Butler stopped, as she caught a glimpse of a single candle burning from an upper window, it’s glow was very bright and strong, but the feelings were even stronger. They continued tilled they reached the porch which is adorned with a carved pumpkin. Butler walked up the steps, opened the lid with a smile and set the candle a blaze … and she knew it could have only been carved by one person … and headed straight towards the huge front door, as she stood in front of them they opened by themselves and they found themselves standing in a most elegant entry parlor with had a staircase that wrapped around. As their eyes follow its path up the winding trail, they noticed next to the huge window was a rocking chair … Butler jumped up and began to RUN up those steps … Luna right behind her. As Butler reached the landing she jumped right in to the chair … Luna noticed a soft fluffy pillow beside it and got all cozy, but when she looked up she noticed Butler was climbing, as she looked on she noticed a faint silhouette and knew she was with her mom … as she began to nuzzle her head in to her mom's neck, the chair started rocking by itself. Then Luna could hear a faint "hiss" and she knew they were together, same space, same time. Luna could see her as Butler nestles herself upon her shoulders … a calm came over her as she watched through adoring eyes, “You don’t always have to see them it to know that it is there”.
You are LOVED. You are in our thoughts more than you know; deeply appreciated even if we can’t find the words, we would be lost without you. Butler sat nestled upon her mom with great admiration, respect, loyalty and courage … for she is her mother’s daughter. Thinking of you both always, Luna & her mom Nadine

Hi Jules and precious Butler.
Just stopping byto let you know we are thinking of you and hopeing all is somewhat back to normal at your place. Things here have gotten back to normal and thankfully we did not get any damage to our properties as many did. We are off to the lake for the weekend to get some boating in. Tyson and Dozer love going there as they get to swim and go for boat rides. Dozer likes to bark at all the boats going by. I think he is saying "Hello" to all as he is everyones friend but maybe he is telling them something else "not sure". LOL.
Have a grand weekend and drop me a line when you can.
Hugs and Love.
Lauvern and crew.

Dear Jules and precious little Butler.
I hope all is well out your way and that you are back home again...I am sorry i have been out of touch as I had been on vacation but was forced to come back sooner than expected due to flooding around our summer cabin and the area around the shelter. The last few days have been hectic as we had to move the furbabies from Luke's shelter as well as help other shelters and people in the area of the emergency evacuation. Although our home was safe as we live within the city limits with a floodway all around that they do open up the gates if the water gets too high which it did. By doing so though, it causes small towns and surrounding areas to flood which included Luke's shelter as well as our summer cottage. Anyway things are slowly getting back to normal but many lost their homes which is so sad....I hope all is ok with you and your home. Drop me a line when you can.
Hugs and LoveLauvern and my crew.
