Spring Has Sprung!!!

Today is the first day of Spring, some may say it's the Spring Equinox and here in the Pagan/Witchy world we say Ostara; whatever you want to call it it means Spring is here!

My day started with a fabulous Spring forecast.

My daughter decided to get our dog in our fun

Since the Hubs had to work today, after school the girls and I did mani/pedis 

We also made a yummy dinner of chicken, loaded baked potatoes, baked beans, and of course deviled eggs.

I hope all of you have enjoyed the first day of Spring, may the rest of your Spring be blessed and full of sunshine.

Many Blessings

Ramblings of a strange soul

I wrote this a few years ago, and it fits my mood and train o thought right now; so I thought I'd share it with you.

Ramblings of a strange soul 

My world is spinning.

My mind is dizzy.

Confusion overwhelms me.

Fear consumes me.

Your love surrounds me.

These thoughts confound me.

My ups are down

My lost is found.

Through The Darkness, The Sun Shines Through

Whoever said beware the Ides of March, should have said beware the whole damn month of March! You see withe the exception of one spectacular day in the entire month, March hates me and I don't think to kindly of it either.

You see the month of March has taken some very precious things from me; it has taken my daddy, a brother, a cousin, an uncle and several friends. March has taken so much from me, that towards the end of February I start to have anxiety attacks over it; some days I don't even want to get out of bed.

I light a candle daily in March in the memory of those I have lost
Thankfully the Universe knew what March had in store for me, and gave me something to look forward to in March every year. You see 12 years ago in March I became a mommy for the third time, and I didn't just give birth to any baby; this little girl is pure magic. 

This is a pic from when she was about 5yrs old
It does not matter how much rain is pouring down in my life all she has to do is walk in the room with that magical smile of hers, and the clouds part and the sunshine just streams in. It is impossible for me to be any type of sad when she is around, in fact no one can.

For all the loss and grief that March has givin me, I'm so thankful and blessed to have this angel in my life to help me get through this tough month and so much more.
