Friday at HOME

Welcome HOME
"There's no place like it"
everyone here
as evidenced by love
little eyes!

The flight home was "uneventful"
I do like that word when it comes to flying!
after a wonderful tour of speaking
Nana's girls!
time to get rest, get caught up
to fly out
on the 17th
Vancouver BC
to speak
at the
American Hospice and Palliative Care
World Conference

It's Friday!!!
Ready for a wonderful week-end?
The weatherperson
says it's going to
70 degrees today!
Coffee in hand, long sweatshirt on
I am waiting!
Olivia did great yesterday in school
she walked and she learned some things in her classes
she also
learned somethings
that they do not teach in classrooms since her surgery!
Those things I believe are "gifts"
that she was "open"
to receiving
will last a lifetime
she received those gifts
from her Mom, from her Nana
Kelly Two Wolves who worked through
the Creator and the spirits.
Little Olivia
was open to learn and to receive them
Yesterday when she returned to school
on those little feet
that looked rather sore
and swollen;
she was strong enough to bend
she was
We are forever in transition, continually moving; changing directions, doing differently, liking the changing seasons and storms often more than we could have ever imagined. If we were to stop and take some nice deep breaths, maybe think about where we've been and where we might be headed... we would know that if is required of us it is only to be flexible!
Not just flexible in seeing things in more than one color; one ideal, one belief... but bending without breaking. Knowing that we can see chaos and fear sometimes within and around and not fall down under it! It is our duty, or as the Cherokee would write, our "a da du da lv ned di" (obligation), to Move and Bend.,
without creating a rift in our own soul and spirit, thereby maintaining our mind-body-spirit connection.
 Often we have to move beyond our fears, our pain and our comfort zone. We have to "try", we have to struggle, and to keep the faith, and to "just do it" with HOPE in our hearts.

After all, you and I both know that a house cut in to or in half, cannot stand!
We are not so different than that visual you just held in your minds' eye.

However far we might stray in any direction, we must get it back together in our own house, the house within... we must bond with the law of our own spiritual being, which is to love our-self allowing us to love others' richly and without limits or condition. The journey and struggles through life, love, heartaches and healing will challenge you, your beliefs and all that you can imagine. At times it is a difficult journey to be sure, one with pain that is physical, or emotional, or spiritual... or all at once.

 Be gentle with yourself while remembering the willow in the wind, STRONG ENOUGHT TO BEND without breaking.
Enjoy the beautiful gifts that are yours on this most wonderful day of February.

"I take you by the hand with all my heart... you have spoken comfort to us" (Little Beaver's Wife)

The fire is burning brightly, its embers are HOT, with sage filling the air, and filling your senses... sending HOPE, thoughts, and prayers to those on the winds today, you know who you are, and some may not even have a clue... But we are with you, and powerful warriors we are.

Walk In Beauty,

the "real deal" when it comes to psychics and artisans of lovely works, take a look!

for a great writer who is doing some awesome book reviews!
