Back in the beginning of this year I had dubbed it
I had no idea what that fully would bring,
but I knew it was the right path for me.
So much so that I have discovered that Owl has always been apart of my life
this was not just something for this year
but for the years that have past
and the years that are to come.
The beginning of this year brought storms
and through those storm came the understanding
that storms are relative to perception.
That with in each storm lies Hope and Light
That with in each storm comes a Shelter provided for all.
This year we found a new rhythm in our family...
the old one no longer worked
so gently we walked it out
and found a new song
just in time...
This year brought this mother to her knees
as I almost lost my son to darkness and despair.
I found myself broken apart
chattered from within
and the voices would have had me believe
that all Hope was Lost...
but that was not so
It became a time of remembering
that mountains can be moved
It was a year where Mother Earth's beauty spoke to me
everyday that I stepped out into Her Grace...
Conversations flowed from the heart
filling the rooms in which we sat...
enlightening one another's hearts
with our Spiritual Truth and Journeys.
This year brought successful creative outlets
for both my boys.
We traveled together
me and my boys
a time of family and giving back.
Love of this face grew to epic proportions!
Gods Grace shone brightly over us this year...
as I felt the loss of friends
and the blessings of new ones
...and the Gift of The Creators Creatures
blessed me everyday
This year brought me the wonderment of
the reality of Death...
and the Freedom found in Forgiveness.
This year offered me more time...
I was blessed by a weekend away...
with 5 other women
where we connected with
and with the Source of all things...
which brought to me a time of re-birth
which brought to me this space.
I was given the Gift of Silence and Reflection...
where I spent time with God
and all Her beauty and gentleness.
an old, familiar seed began to grow
one that was rooted deep with in me
and that seed grew strong,
with out my help
and continues to do so...
and I have responded to this growth
I have embraced it
and all it has come to mean to me...
I know this coming year will bring
I look forward to it all...
but for now I ponder on the year that has past
and feel the Gratitude reflection brings.
For this is a real life.
Blessings to all of you, my lovelies,
as we enter into this New Year!
Love and Light
