Life Can Be Fragile

Life Can Be Fragile. Life Can be Fleeting. Embrace every moment for its Sacred & Magical (are they not the same?) Energy.

On June 12th, 2018 I filmed this very young Fawn, still slightly wobbly on its legs, as it walked along the opposite side of my swim quarry.

 

Yesterday, July 3rd, I lifted this same beautiful being’s body from the side of the road. I carried her into the woods to lay her to rest under a Great White Pine, a Tree of Life. As I walked; fawn in my arms, tears running down my face, and my heart broken, Momma Deer was right close by in the woods. My heart broke open even bigger knowing there she still was, close by her baby’s body.

I share this with much positivity as bizarre as that sounds. I am listening to the messages of the Universe. The past month has held much wisdom in lessons for me as I have been immersed in some Earth shattering wake up calls.

  • Truly live and breathe in every moment’s bliss or sorrow.
  • Live the life I want. Start celebrating my bucket list now.
  • Who knows what tomorrow will bring or if I will even have a tomorrow.
  • Hug

Last night, as I sat next to the campfire with my two sons and their rowdy teen friends – time was closing in on midnight and I wanted to be in bed 2 hours ago so I could be up to witness the beauty of the Sunrise – I took several deep breaths {in pink, out blue, surround myself in yellow  wink  }.  I am ecstatically grateful my boys, 16 & 19, want to hang with their Mom, Dad, and Nancy by the campfire AND so do their friends. We tell stories, ask questions of the newcomers to get to know them, and laugh until we go to bed exhausted and reeking of campfire. Did I mention the S’mores and endless roasted marshmallows? I will catch the Sunrise another day… maybe on those mornings when I am wishing my kids were still here to sit around the campfire with me/us.

Embrace life. Live fully in every moment. Sit by the campfire until the embers and playful communications cease.

Happy Birthing Day to ME!

As Mothers, Parents, we take the time to celebrate our Kid’s birthdays. This is a time to make them feel special, wanted in this world, and feel our own gratefulness for their presence in our lives.

My first son was born on July 29th. He made me a Mom (We, as women, are all Mothers with the ability to always Mother others, Mother all beings!).

I urge all Moms to celebrate each and every one of your Kid’s birthdays as your special day as well.  These are the days you birthed your babes; brought forth your creations into this world.

The birthday, birthing day, is a time of joy, a time to celebrate:

  • the divine process of fertilization and pregnancy (Hey, the divine menstrual cycle that brings forth our ability to create!),
  • the actual labor and birthing process, the whole bittersweet process,
  • the years of being a Mom and all that entails…,
  • your growth as a human being and the wisdom you have called home to your own being (It is so easy to “say” how we would be as a Mom, a Parent, and how Kids “should” be raised. This is a whole other experience when we are right in the heat of it all. Nothing like doing it to create our own wisdom! Being a mom has taught me to never give advice about something I have never actually done!),
  • the beautiful souls, your children, who walk this plane of existence with you; they have so much to teach us if we only pay attention and listen instead of thinking we, as parents, have all the answers,
  • the wisdom we become as we walk through life as Mom, with our Mother’s grace,
  • and gratitude for all our mom’s gave to us and taught us along their mothering path (even when we hear our mother coming out in our own words to our kids!).

Every year when my boy’s birthdays roll around, I show gratitude for their place by my side and all they have taught me about being me!

Jake, Eli, and Mom, 12 years ago… where does the time go?

jake's 15th

A few months back, I made an “oreo” cookie cake for Eli, my 12 year old’s birthday.  I reported about it in my blog post:  My Holistic Momma’s Dilemma. I used the Newman-Os as you see above. This cake was a big hit with my kids and is being repeated here, 3 months later, for Jake’s 15th.

Happy 15th Birthday Jake and Happy Birthing Day to Me!

Love,

MOM
