ABC Wednesday & Favourite Things Thursday Mix

With this Etsy thing, lately I have eyes to getting cool ideas for the crafts, and my time shrinked, so this time I'll have to make two memes at the same time, since my belated ABC Wednesday and my Favourite Thing would be the same subject. I do hope it's ok for Denise and Blue, friends creators of both memes!
I do read my friends' posts but with few comments, I'm sorry if sounds like I don't care, but this is not the truth, I'm only in a craft frenzy, plus dealing with my notorious migraine monthly phase... But of course, I couldn't help stopping by Mrs. B's great Halloween giveaways, last night I won a gorgeous pottery jar with a lavender candle, I went to bed all happy like a little girl at Christmas night!
So at the ABC fun, the letter is M and this stands for the Moon. and this is also My Favourite Thing today.
This Earth's natural satellite is very dear to me, and obviously to most pagans, but not only - so many people love taking a look at the sky at night just to have a glimpse of this beauty when it raises above the horizon, so many songs and poems were created in her honor. There's some mystique about it that can't be denied.
Since I was a child I feel a sense of safety when looking at the full moon. I remember my mom taking me on her lap so I could stare at it by our living room window while holding her neck on a tight hug. Maybe that's why its connection with the Mother aspect is so strong in me. It1s like being embraced by her gentle warm arms.

My one piece of jewelry, that never comes off, is my Celtic knot crescent moon (that's sort of like your tattoo,lol!).

That's beautiful Nydia! And it's always nice to know that when you look up at it, other people are seeing the same moon as you. =)

Oh and congrats on the candle! It's such a lovely piece of work. Being bad at crafts myself, I'm always amazed when people can make things that turn out so nice!

What a lovely memory to have associated with looking at the moon! I love gazing at the moon and following its phases, but lately it has been cloudy here and I haven't seen the moon in ages. :(

PS- CONGRATS on winning the candle, its absolutely gorgeous! You are so lucky!

I have always felt the same way about the moon and wondered why it means so much to me.

I am raising my children to notice the moon along with the many little things most people miss in life.

They speak about the moon and notice it every day.

That is a beautiful photo
