The Tenacious Toads

This story doesn’t really connect with Warrior as much as it connects to starting my blog. Well, maybe it does…. As previously mentioned, animals can and will use a spirit’s energy to show you a message or sign but toads aren’t those winged creatures! I do believe in the power of nature and all animals but yet once again, repetition is the answer. When things have a certain pattern or it seems only for you at that moment, it is REAL…
Every summer for the past several years, toads frequent our backyard pond and we spot a few hopping around. My son found one in the crook of our big oak tree trying to be hidden, some would be in the driveway hanging out after dark under the garage light, and some just hop in the yard. This past summer of 2016 they just, well, seemed a bit different and of course I noticed- again.
When I had compiled several stories already, my mind wandered into thinking of what to do with them. I love writing and this one actually isn’t an original.
Were they just for me to read and enjoy forever? Would others love them like I do or even care? I felt like a new mother wanting to show off her “baby” and yet keep it close and protected. As thoughts raced thru my brain, a few toads did some pretty interesting things.
One was on my side of the garage after I returned from yoga like it was waiting for me. They are never in that spot and nowhere near the pond or even under the light. While waiting for my daughter’s school bus in the front one was just sitting under my favorite coral rose bush. Um– really? They are never in the front yard- never.
The most dramatic toad moment was seeing one on my patio under the motion light. Now, they love lights for the bugs or water but it seemed so odd. The next night he brought a friend or should I say it? I don’t know… I teased it thinking the next night there would be three. Nope, it just decided to move closer onto my welcome mat inches from the steps up the sliding door. I said to it:” you’re not coming in!” It was so funny and yet so peculiar to me.
One more toad story– yes there’s more! I went in the backyard by the pond trying to get our dog away from her “treed” squirrel and into the car for her walk. I looked at the pond and yes by the photo (although it shows 4), about 6 toads just hanging out. We usually have a few, not this many! I was stunned and thought maybe it’s a family. Later on they were gone and never returned.
You might be thinking:
“What in the world does this have to do with my blog?” Glad you asked. I did a little googling of course and most know how toads have a very negative image. They are often viewed badly in many cultures. Just like with anything, keep on looking until you find the right meaning for you and I did.
I finally found out what maybe all these toads were trying to tell me– thanks spirit team! They can be good luck or fortune, something you have been thinking about could come true.
They could be sent to examine yourself for answers within, don’t let opportunity pass you by. Do not doubt yourself or your ability, you can be successful. Take action and don’t sit idly by. Notice the little things. They are astral travelers which means the aquatic and physical (land). They are grounded and yet very stubborn. They can be your encouragement at a time in your life when you need assistance with a decision. They can guide you to the spirit world and help you with patience or perseverance. You might need clarity on an issue.
Well, there you have it. I often thought of all these tenacious toads and wondered if this could indeed become a post, guess it has! Warrior has always been one of my spirit guides throughout my writings. Without him, I wouldn’t have a blog. Could he have sent all those toads?
You can decide for yourself but this Warrior Woman believes in it all. Maybe he was saying while shaking those heavenly ropes:” Write the #%?! blog already!” He swore a lot for those who don’t know!!!

I'm a wife, mom of 2 and have always been a huge fan of WWE’s the Ultimate Warrior despite his passing. I created this blog to share my stories relating to him that happened years ago and some are continuing today with his Spirit alive and well! I hope some fans out there relate and enjoy my blog!!! Check out my book “Spirit and Belief” on how Warrior influenced me in spirit. It is filled with humor, family stories, psychic terms, following my intuition, and how everyone has natural abilities we can tap into or get guidance upon.
