My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

Ash Wednesday

yes, the beginning of the lenten journey - a journey of reflection. Got the ashes on my forehead - Am I living my life to the best of my ability? Do I give thanks as often as I need? Love thy neighbour - is there just one person in my life who drives me absolute nuts - that I can smile or say a few words to? Do I sit and pray or meditate as often as I need? Am I treating myself in the way I deserve to be treated? Is there something that I can give up that I would miss dreadfully? hmmmmmmm

You answered your own question in the entry before this one. You have sacrificed one night of campanionship... one night of intimacy... one night of having your soul mate by your side. Think about it! He could have been with you or you with him.. but you have chosen sacrifice for a greater return. Sometimes I think we think too much about the bigger issues when the answers are so simple. Does this work for you Robyn? I hope it helps.. and I hope you find your answers soon.. and I hope Joe is home, safe and sound tomorrow. Hugs and well wishes xoxox

We all make sacrifices but are they the right ones, we like to think so. If we live each day with the thought that we are doing our best(to be kind, nice, and keep up with the laundry) and that we are happy and made the people we love around us happy then we have accomplished this.Hope your mate arrives home safe.

I think we can just try and be the best person possible each day...and God will be there tomorrow for us to do even better than today.

Hugs, Connie
