It hit me one day, while watching “The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet” on Lifetime, that the new culture is 40. Not only having a baby at the age of 40, the transition that comes with entering this age is more … Continue reading
I really listened to this song tonight and what a great song. Auld Lang Syne is about old friends who have parted and meet again.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne?
So as I move into this year, it brought about synchronicity. This holiday I threw a formal dinner party for my closest friends to let them know how much I love and cherish their friendship – celebrate their beauty as women. It was part of my pledge to not forget to reach out or stay in touch with my friends. Life can make time past so fast when your world is busy. But I have learned that just the fact of having these people to call upon, check on me and love me is the priceless thing I plan to cherish even more. Happy 2013. And auld lang syne!
In the last week I have had two people (one very important to me) loose a child…a baby. It’s such a hard thing to swallow, hard to know what to say and hard to know when to call. As I searched for the right gift, I see all of the responses from mothers who have gone through this; lovingly and bravely they share their stories of what gift made the difference at that time. As I have been in these shoes twice over…these little angels are called in what we think is too soon but they will return when the time is best.
Blessings have been what I claim the last 5 days to be. One visit from my sister took my creativity to the next level…new fabric, copper wire, bating and wood? Let the fun begin. In addition, I was able to see how much respect and love my son has for his father at 3 years old. Now that’s abundance – creative love!
I have been doing the 21 day Mediation Challenge with Chopra Center. With it has been the most amazing questions at the end. Even though I have been meditating for 10+ years now, in and out, I have been committed to it daily for 7.5 daily. What a life changing thing. But when the question was posed to me I was a bit stumped? I thought I new this already but it really wasn’t the highest vision but a vision. So I ask - What is the highest vision you hold of yourself?
It’s been a while since I have written, even lagging on my morning pages. Sometimes I am wonderful at balancing my life and that of a parent. Then, all seems to crumble. Just trying to catch my breath and get some sleep. No despair just need to keep it as in check as I can. How do you balance? How often do you fall off the wagon?
“Why do husbands sleep in the same bed with their wives? I think it’s called mating.” Hilarious
