Our Michaelmas season has been quite profound. We've each had a good look at the dragons in our life. We've stared them down, honored their presence in our moments, and have made steadfast and brave attempts to tame them. Our big kids have really been able to understand and acknowledge this seasonal shift in their days. The each are aware of how their dragons effect them and are being tested, everyday, in an attempt to practice their taming capabilities. It's been a wonder to watch but it has also been a bit overwhelming to lend them a hand and shine some light on their path. I am a firm believer that they are still connected enough to feel their way through an event. They each hear that little voice that prompts them to act in love and avoid the negative. Sometimes their voice is muddled but they've proven to be courageous in their ability to listen more deeply.
Our next celebration is less than a week away. We will, and I will forever be astonished, celebrating the birth of not only myself but also that of KiKi!! KiKi was not only our most super, special, most amazing surprise baby but when my birthday rolled around 3 years ago I didn't think for a moment that I was actually in labor!!! Her birth was a total surprise. We just barely made it to the hospital in time........it was pure magic! Our KiKi........full of magic and surprise xo
The Autumn time marks the beginning of so much........it truly could not be any more special in my eyes. The colors changing, along with the weather. The fragmented sunlight, the flavors, the smells........ahhh, the woodstove!!! I love everything this time of year has to offer. For me, it's my new beginning. My slate is cleaned, my heart renewed.
I would love to hear how you honor and celebrate the change to Autumn (or Spring if you're in the Southern half!!)
