Today's Thoughts

Hi and Merry Meet,
I feel like this past week I have just fallen off the Earth.... my life has been so busy and full that I haven't had time to sit down!

I hope that everyone had a happy 4th of July. We sure did. My husband's coworker invited us to visit his family at his camp for the weekend. We had a great time! It was nice to hang out and relax. I have to admit that the fireworks show was spectacular! It went for over an hour and then when all was said and done, they would find more... it was a very prolonged final. I love it! We stuffed ourselves with Smores and even had a clam bake. Hubby and I enjoy this family a lot and it was a nice way to spend time together.

Tonight is the full moon, but there are no open circles in my area. That's ok, since I have some things I want to cleans and dedicated to my Craft use. It will also be a good opportunity for me to try writing my own Esbat. I admit I've been a bit dependent on books to help me so far. This past week I took a big step and wrote my first healing spell.

Writing my own rituals and spells is a very big deal to me. I've liked using the books for guidance and help, but I think it is time I stood on my own two feet and see what I can come up with. I am still very new at all this, but I feel like I have grown a lot recently. Medications are starting to get easier and I am able to relax more quickly into them than when I first tried. I know that in my daily life, I have become much more relaxed and peaceful. There is still a lot of stress, but I feel like I am handling it differently and not letting it get to me as much as I was.

Tonight might be cloudy and rainy... no outside Esbat for me.
Blessed be,


  1. I did my first full moon ritual today. It was not original, but I did write an original one for the new moon.

  2. I didn't have too much trouble writing my first ritual, but the next two I relied on those I found. I don't know if it's my age, 76, that makes it harder to create, if I just don't seem to find the time, or if I am just a procrastinator.
