One of the bright spots of my day is checking in with on-line friends and seeing what they’re up to. I’ve cut out many of the places I used to go visit, having pared it down to just those folks I truly care about. One such person is Kate George. Some of us have taken to calling her Kewl Kate because she is outstandingly awesome. Also, she writes books. Good books.
Right now she’s working on getting another one into our hands. And everyone can say they were a part of the process. Please go HERE and see what her new idea is all about. (If anyone local would like to read her first two books, I have them, and would be willing to share. Both of those links above also provide purchasing information.)
With this planetary shitstorm we are under, I feel as if we need to do what we can to support those we care about. Neither Kate, nor I, would ever ASK for help unless it was really necessary. But what I’m learning is that it’s okay to share ourselves and then allow the support to appear. Especially now.
My day this afternoon had a delayed start. And it went a different direction than I had planned. Which is simply the way of things right now. I’m working on accepting that, and embracing the movement. As well as the beginning/ending quality that all of this turmoil has set off.
Which brings me to our daily draw. It is welcome, and even though a bit sad, it also has the over-all feel of power. (I am simply ignoring the illustration. Entirely.)
“Goddess Of Oneness ~
Someone you love is thinking fondly of you at the moment.
Remember that love is not restricted by time or space and you are forever connected spiritually to those you love and care for. It is understandable that you may be saddened because you are physically apart from someone you dearly love. Alternatively you may be saddened by a loved one’s recent passing from the Earth plane.
Through this card they are making their presence felt. They have not left you and will never leave you; they are forever with you in spirit. The bonds of love can never be broken. Feel and acknowledge their presence, for they are with you in spirit right now.”
The number of reminders and messages we’ve been getting from my friend who recently passed is nearly uncountable. This one is no different. With one exception, this one is for anyone and everyone who reads these words. As a gift, from my pal. She is saying that she’s fine, and so are those loved ones all of you have who’ve gone Home already.
Signs like this are so very reassuring. They comfort us, and remind us of all those beautiful moments, months, years we had together. Those memories are another way of keeping a person alive in our hearts. It honors them to be thought of with a smile. And it helps us get through this day, and the next one after that.
Here’s what made us smile earlier. (Look at them, just look! How can you NOT?!)
My dad had to undergo an in-office procedure on Wednesday, he’ll return back next week for the follow-up. It’s urinary related, and he’s otherwise fine. But we needed to check in today since we’ll be gone this weekend. It was MOST entertaining to drive all the way out there, with all three dogs in the car with me.
My mom and I had a great conversation hour, we talked a lot about what I’ve been discussing with you guys here. She’s very intuitive, and has felt many of the same things we are all noticing. What we’ve come up with is basically the same message: see these challenges with our rose-quartz colored glasses on, bathe this time (and the world) in love and Tranquility. We can’t fight it, so we may as well make the best of it.

Today’s Affirmation is really Ally’s sister’s food blessing:
Bless the animals, the vegetables and minerals that nourish me.
Bless the hands that tended, gathered and prepared the food.
Bless the cook, the server and the cleaner
Bless us who enjoy the fruits of their labor.
(Partly because this is so great, and partly because I really need some food help right now, I am NOT doing well in this department. For the first time in-I-can’t-remember-when, I did NOT walk or splash or ride on this calendar day/24 hour period. Unfortunately, I keep eating as though I did.)
