Mabon...



Just two more days, and Autumn is here again, while for most of you, it will be Spring! Usually I would envy your season, but this time, with the incredible hot Summer we had, I can't wait for the weather to get a bit colder, but PLEASE gods, no rain! I hate to fetch Lucas at school under heavy or light rain... But I'm ready for the darker days tht will come, the inward spiral my heart will make, the long nights filed with thoughts and reflections where I'll find new strenght to carry on, and the challenge of being so by myself like this time I am. It's a great time for letting go old habits and thoughts that prevent us from growing and going ahead in our lives. Boy, I'm so ready for that! There's so much I need to let go so my path is clear and I can see my feet while walking...

This Mabon we'll make again our cornucopia out of Autumn decorated gift paper and fill it with coins, pines, dried leaves, apples and grains, everything for the abundance I want in our lives. Also this year, for the first time, we'll burn the Greenman mask Lucas made on Litha, to close the Summer. And let's see what else can be done as ritual, because the house will be full - it's my favorite Aunt Sandra (the taxi driver)'s b-day as well, and we'll have a barbecue in her honour, therefore we'll probably make part of our ritual and activities early in the morning, and part late in the afternoon, when everybody is already gone.

I always try to make basically the same things on each sabbaths so Lucas can relate things more easily and so that they become a tradition - actually they have already become. I have the same altar ornaments for years that we love, and sometimes I add something new, like his drawings and boards.

I wish you all a beautiful Ostara/Spring!

Nydia! I got your box in the mail yesterday!! Thank you so much for all the wonderful surprises!!

And tell Lucas: Thank you so much for the Jack bag! It's so cool and I love it! And thank you for the Valentine!! I love, love, love the kitties on it! I bet you knew how much I love cats, didn't you? Thank you!

LIfe has been so busy here. Between starting out with my new Pagan friends in a coven, the Issues with J.'s hearing aids and life in general, I'm so behind on reading blogs and such.

Know that you guys stay in my heart and prayers! Thanks you so much, you really made my week!!

((hugs))

and a very happy Mabon to you as well! I confess that I am a bit envious, because Autumn is my favorite season! However, I am ready for growing things after so long without. Blessings to you!

Rather strange to read:"with the incredible hot summer we had "...
In France, and especially in Normandy, we could write" with the incredible cold and snowy winter we had "!
And now, it rains -It pours !

I'm so ready for warm weather! LOL We had a long, hard winter. I hope summer isn't too extreme though.

I hope your Mabon was fantastic!
