Our dear Jamie asked us this morning..Where do we wish to go slow? I have been missing in action of late..well most of the Fall really..and I have missed Wednesday wishcasting and all my wishcasting buddies so very much. So....I am wishing today.
I love the winter..I really do ..I am not nuts! I love the snow and the cold. Snowman building... ok... so we build dragons and such. At the moment there is a snow shark chasing a terrified snowman around the yard..Fox's creation..giggle. Poor guy is swimming as fast as he can.
One of the things I really love about the snowy season..I can sit inside and craft, draw, knit, quilt, read a book..without garden guilt. My wonderful yard is dormant for the season..no weeding or planting to be done..no leaves left to rake..just beautiful, delightful snow. And let me tell ya this year it came early and there is lots of it! Whooot!
The last couple of months, really the whole of Fall has been wickedly stressful for me. We have been low on numbers in the my daycare..really low, art sales in Sept. and Oct. were dismal at best. But...my knitting has been selling..go figure. Jim has been selling mineral specimens online like crazy..so at least this last month we have been doing ok..playing catch up. But at least we are not drowning yet..which is a huge blessing. I have managed to keep the bills paid ..late but paid!! Whoot!
So you are asking..what is the wish already..k here it is. That I remember that there is only so much I can do...I can only do so many rows of knitting in one day..I can only watch so many children..those who come to me..draw so many pictures...stress out only so much. My wish today is that I can remember to breathe..take one day at a time. The bills will get paid..late is better than not..I feel blessed in this economy that we are not way behind. I wish today to slow down my fears to a crawl, stay present and enjoy the season. That is my wish today.
I have missed you all so much..am so happy to be back!!
Hugs and Namaste, Sarah
