Well, It has taken me a while to post about the recent events of life. So much has happened and there is so many places I could start, so I will start with Salem and good friends.
My trip to Salem, MA was awesome and it is hard to describe how much fun it was. I was in a strange place with two of my closest friends. I was able to spend some time with just me and my needs for a change. Salem was beautiful and the atmosphere was amazing. I have never been in a place where there was so many pentacles and pentagrams everywhere. THE CITY LOGO IS THE FLYING WITCH FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!
Jody, Christine and I got to go to several museums, reinactments/plays, and a ghostly footstep tour where we got pictures of orbs and one of a possible spirit!! And of course we got lots of shopping done. I am very grateful for such awesome and wonderful friends.
Things at home have been up and down. I have been suffering with panic attacks and recently went to the doctor who is performing some tests and prescribed some medication. In addition, the family has been dealing with the struggles of raising teenage kids in todays society. It is amazing how the world has changed and scary to think of where we are going.
But to the credit of the family, we are hanging in there and trying to dodge the turmoil that may come our way. I especially want to say that my son Kevin is such a strong soul and inspiration for everyone to continue to survive in a world that can feel so uncertain. I am grateful for that in my life.
The twins are awesome and beautiful. There faces remind me that there is peace in the world. I can’t believe how fast they are growing and sometimes want to freeze time so I can just hide in thier innocence. I hope they love me as much as I love them, although I doubt they could ever imagine how important they are to a person like me.
Robert continues to run circles around everyone like he is on speed. Sometimes I wonder how to keep him grounded but then I remember that it must be a wonderful thing to only have to worry about whether grandma is gonna take you to target or walmart for a hot wheels toy. And it is in those moments that I remember how important it is to be able to be so free and I envy him. It is a blessing to be able to be around such a free spirit and look into his eyes that look back at me like my own. It is like looking into a mirror but the reflection shows an excitement about life that I am missing sometimes. It is a good reminder of how my eyes slant and curl up at the ends when I am smiling or happy. Just thinking about it makes me smile now.
The dark half of the year is definatly apon us but the witch’s new years is right around the corner and with it comes an opportunity to let go of the past year and welcome the new. It is now a good time of year to work the dark/crone energy and release some of the things that keep us down. I hope everyone takes advantage of that, I know I will be.
Blessed Samhain everyone. Thank the goddess for another chance to learn the lessons the universe has to teach. Thank her for another turn of the wheel.
