This Spring will bring me much healing as I witness All waking up from Winter’s Cold Nap. Too many whom I Loved passed in a very short span of time, not that long ago. Mother Nature I know with unwavering doubt shall caress my aching Heart with Her Tender Touches. She has already done so.
Yes I have been choosing Joy over that of sad and yes it feels so good! Spring is my Mom’s favorite Season and even though she is on the other side of the Veil, her Love and excitement can be felt within me. With every flower I shoot this Spring, with every witness to Mother’s Miracle of Growth once again, I dedicate all that I capture to the woman who I grew to Love beyond reason.
My Life that was left in jagged smoking ruins beginning last August and ending this January, is knitting slowly back together again, in a New Way. My feline family overall are on cruise and it is with much relief that no one is critically ill. I’ve learned and am still learning to Love the Moment, for that is all we truly have. Do I see the empty places that once held Loved Ones? You bet I do as do my babies. Yet it is my Love and my Joy that are carrying this family of mine to Peace. Yes, that feels glorious! There are still a few deep in grief, to which my attention and coaxing to choose to live again hopefully will bring back to Happy.
I know that Rocky (who just passed January 11th) did not recover from his brother’s Karma’s death no matter what I did. That is a bitter “pill” to swallow. These cats do have the option to choose glad or sad. I encourage them as best I can to choose glad. Perhaps when the temps get warm this week and the windows and doors are open and my feline family smell the clean fresh air, and hear the birdies sing, and listen to the sounds of Mother Earth awakening, perhaps then those who are still deep in mourning will come back to living again.
As with all I do, I do my best. I know what to do to keep me in glad and to assist those I Love, and as I continue to consistently act upon those things my Heart heals. As I look upon the Miracles each day brings, they remind me what a precious Gift Life is.
Depending on what the weather is like, you will most likely find me out in my gardens, as I begin the massive endeavor to open them up for this coming Season. I’m thinking about going back to the Mountain of Horse Poop to again bring back bags and bags of the good stuff. All that good stuff will give my gardens another healthy dose of yummy nutrition. I’ll see. That job I cannot do alone so I must get hubby’s assistance. He’s not too keen to stand in and shovel horse poop. Me? I don’t mind as long as I have my rubber boots on. No biggie. My goodness. There are a whole lot of worse things I can think of then shoveling horse poop. ☺
