Happy Birthday, Sage

Dear Sage,

When you emerged and entered the world 11 years ago today, my heart opened wide, and I experienced a love so pure, instant, and deep.

During our 11 years together, you have taught me more about purpose, intention, awareness, intuition, patience, and acceptance than I have known in all of my 50 years.

You instantly created a pink glittered world, filled with magic, swirly dresses, tea parties, everyday celebrations, ritual, and fairy dust.

Through our adventures together, I have gained a clearer understanding of my inner child and also how I continue to become who I am.

You have taught me when to hold strong and when when to let go.

You have taught me to always have an open mind, heart, and arms.

You have taught me the true meaning of listening to my inner voice.

Today, I celebrate you and the beauty you have brought to my world.

I admire your strong sense of of your self, your unique style and individuality,  your compassion and acceptance of others, and your positive approach to all that surrounds you.  You radiate joy each and every day.

Happy Birthday, my sweet 11 year old daughter.

My wish for you is to always be surrounded by kind, loving, supportive, and considerate friends all the days of your life.

To have quite moments where you can just be.

To always know how to find your way home.

And, when you look in the mirror, I wish for you to always see a confident, beautiful, creative, inspiring being who is always worthy and deserving of genuine love, pure beauty, greatness, and to be centered in truth and peace. 
  May of all your dreams be your realities.

I love you with my whole being.
Love Aways,

missing you

August, 1990

You would have been 76 years old today.  

There have been so many times during the past 19 years when
I have felt you watch over me and smile from that peaceful place where your spirit roams.  

There have been so many times when I have wanted you to continue to see the loving life Josh and I have created together.

There have been so many times when I have wanted you to kiss your beautiful grand daughter and know the abundance of joy she has brought to my life. 

There have been so many times when
 I've missed hearing your encouraging words.

There have been so many times when
 I've missed you being the first to call and wish me "happy birthday".

There have been so many times when 
I think how grateful I am to have grown up knowing what unconditional love is.  

There have been so many times when 
you've told me, "You can be and do anything you want to."

There have been so many times when
 I've  known how very proud of me you are … 

Dad, I love you and miss you so much!
Love, Eydie

Crazy Hat Day

  My daughter and I recently watched and drooled over the tiny hat video that the amazingly creative, humorous, and generous, 
Julie Fei-Fan Belzer recently shared.  

And what perfect timing ... tomorrow is "Crazy Hat Day" at my daughter's school.  So, out came the felt, glue, flowers, and embellishments. ,,, And, here it is!

When they ask, "where did you get that awesome and unique hat?   My daughter can answer,  "It's my creation, I made it."  I can already feel the satisfaction and excitement skip in her heart.

Don't you just love crazy hat day!

New beginnings

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."  -Seneca 

As snow melts to earth
a tulip pokes its head high
above to be seen.

seeds of intention

~ Garden Goddess ~ Esalen, Big Sur

Spring peeks around the corner,

shining her abundance

of color, song, and possibilities,

as she gently reminds us

to plant our dreams, desires, and wishes.

 I came across this beautiful video, Your Dreams are Important,
 created by the amazing, Andrea Schoeder,  
and just had to share it with you.  

One of the abundant gardens at Esalen in Big Sur

So take a deep breathe

and plant a handful of seeds.

Water, nurture, and sprinkle them with patience, trust, and courage,

enabling them to bloom into

 what you want to be, do, and have in your life.

 It's time for you to live your life full of possibilities and abundance.

  What are your seeds of intention?

You are where you are suppose to BE

"Some things you're not letting happen right now because the timing isn't perfect for you. Some you're not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, "Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I'm enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I'm going. Content where I am, and eager for more," that is the perfect vibrational stance."
--- Abraham

Do you  find yourself focusing more on the outcome than on the process of getting  from here to there?  Perhaps some opportunities have come your way that you  really wanted, yet, you were not really ready for?  Do you spend your time focusing more into the future so that you miss out on what's happening in the present?

Trust that every thing is perfect NOW.  You are exactly where you are suppose to be ~ NOW.  You are perfect ~ NOW.  Every thing is just as it is suppose to be.  The Universe works for us in mysterious ways ~ always knowing what is right for us ~ Here and Now.

How are you allowing yourself to be here ~ Now?
