I’m Back From New York!

613

This was a very spiritual occurrence, we had in New Jersey looking over the Hudson River to Manhattan, New York. We’ve got rained out. But Mother Nature let us witness a beautiful moment.

Wow! This was a long trip! We went to St. Louis, Missouri; visited a friend in Columbus, Ohio; visited more friends in Niagara Falls, New York; crossed the border to see Toronto in Canada; went to New York City; saw the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and took a short break to see the in-laws in North Carolina, before we went back home to Dallas, Texas. About 3752 miles (6038 Kilometers) in 8 days were driven. Kevin, the girls and I had tons of fun on this trip. And we definitely have to go back to New York City to see more sights. In the days to come, I’ll write more blogs about this wonderful trip. ❤

Summer Solstice

Blessed Litha!

Blessed Litha!

Blessed Litha! Sacred fire!
Magical sunrise stirs desire
Queen of Heaven and of Earth
We celebrate your bright rebirth
We see your first blessed rays
In these magical solstice days
Ascending cycle to fulfil
Dancing on the silver hill.

Lilies burn with your desire
Intoxicating spirit fire
As oak and myrrh and mugwort burn
Elder, chamomile and fern
The sacred serpent eats the Spring
Then brings Autumn on the wing
Burning wreaths of sweet vervain
The Goddess will return again.

Walk with me, Daddy

Walk along side me,
Daddy and hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn that
I don’t yet understand.

Teach me things to keep me safe
from the dangers everyday.
Show me how to do my best
at home, at school, at play.

Every child needs a gentle hand
to guide them as they grow.
So walk along side me, Daddy.
We have a long way to go.
