Are you interested in joining our Circle?

I want to put together a group of women and create a circle with the goal of changing the world. I got this idea from Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen's book. See below.

If you're interested please let me know.

We will probably be meeting once a month at each other homes. Each woman will get a chance to lead the circle in the spirit of herself.

Suggested reading before joining the circle is "Gather the Women, Change the World" by Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen or any books on sacred circles.

Day by Day

I sit by the window day by day.
But can I really see?
Is it clean?
Is there a world on the other side?

Who lives in that world?
Not me.
I sit by the window day by day.
Waiting to see.

Digging A New Garden

Believe it or not, it has been in the 70's here in Texas. I love it. I've decided to turn part of my backyard into a sanctuary. The kids are involved and we've made a design together. We've been getting out in the backyard to dig the paths, plan the design, and cart away the dirt and grass.

It has been nice to see the kids working in the yard and to dig in the dirt myself. I have been going through a lot with my menopause symptoms. Anxiety, sadness, irritability, etc...

So getting out in the yard and digging and feeling the sunshine on me has been nice. I'm rebuilding some things in my life and the garden is symbolic of some of those things. Don't know how things are going to turn out...just like life....but I want to create something beautiful.

I'll keep you updated on our progress.

Happy New Year!!!

Another year....I was reading some other women's post on and one of them (can't find her name) suggested writing down all the "shoulds" we tell ourselves and burning them.

I like that idea...

I'll share a few here.

I should homeschool more.
I should worry about the education my children are getting.
I should be a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend.
I should lose weight.
I should eat less and exercise more.
I should be nicer.
I should save more money.
I should clean my house more.
I should.....
I should.....
I should.....

I think that does it for now.

I will be burning my list too.

Join us as we burn our "shoulds" this year and live a more joyful life.
