intention,energy, symbolism

602895E7-C217-4275-903A-D78F65B6F590I fill my life with symbolism. It is a tool that encourages,focuses and inspires me. I received Mala beads awhile ago and they now carry so many stories,prayers,hopes and gratitude. I wear them everyday and set my intention through them. Mostly they help me create my life new every day. I surround myself with symbols of love,positive energy and peace. Every day is a challenge,every day is a learning experience,every day is a new start. Someone once told me that we should let go of the old stories we have of ourselves and start new ones Don’t carry yesterday into today. Fill today with great expectations and gratitude

a new chapter…

​​​there was no stopping her and I sure tried…a dear friend gifted me with a puppy on my birthday. I was and always will grieve for my fixit and Lucy so it was so hard to accept little Luna,but she is her own fierce loving soul and I fall in love with her more everyday. Every moment I spent with fixit and Lucy I lived and loved intensely,my babies they will always be and now this little one will walk my path with me. We both will grow and learn a lot from each other

Life lesson #16

We are all born with an infinite ,boundless capacity for love. When we give pieces of our hearts to those we love those spaces are never filled again,but our hearts don’t diminish,they only change for we carry pieces of those hearts that love us. We are a constantly changing tapestry. 

The pieces of my heart that I have given are where they are meant to be,where they are needed to root and grow,just as the love I carry from so many comfort me and shine out to others.

This is one level where we are all connected. Two special loving spirits carry pieces of my heart,I grieve for them everyday. All they taught me shines through and I know I carry their hearts as well. 

I will always try to live up to that by practicing their lessons of unconditional love,joy and patience.

Love you always fixit and Lou 

Mommy. 

    
    
   

The gift

About 9 years ago I was given a gift, it was so beautiful,  wrapped in love and a big old bow of hope,promises and joy. I didn’t open it, just put it on the window sill so I could admire it everyday

A year and a half ago I took it down and started poking at it and shaking it,  and finally opened it, the box was full of darkness. I couldn’t believe it, all year I searched it, wave after wave of darkness, funny thing as I went through this , on the physical side of my journey I began to lose my vision, I am now blind in one eye with limited vision in my other.  Finally down in the bottom of the box, in the darkestS 

  corner I found something.  I pulled it out into the light and there it shone, a teaching… Do not let ego, fear  or doubt trip you up on your heart’a path. Trust  what makes you happy

When I listen I can hear that little voice telling me to have faith

My eye operation is in December, the doctor said there are no guarantees but it can’t get worse

As for the pretty wrapped box … I threw it out yesterday

digging in the garden…

a friend shared with me her secret to an amazing seasoning, each time its different,  take a little bit of every plant in the garden,flowers included (nothing poisonous, do your research ) wash and dry in the sunshine   , i used beet leaves and stems, pea leaves and shoots, dill, onion tops, tomato leaves, bean leaves.  After they dried I ground them up together, smells divine!

a little bit of this, and a little bit of that

a little bit of this, and a little bit of that

balance…

  

all of our moments, past, present, future all collide here in this one point of ‘now’. I m still searching for that precarious balance,trying not to fall off because it is right here,right now that our lives are lived

and right here, right now we can choose to see life as beautiful
