When I post things here at Ye Olde Crones Gazette, my intention is to not leave my witchiness in the background. It is also never to be preachy or "I have all the answers".
I know my trusted and faithful readers know that. We've been through a lot together. Make ups, break ups, loss, gain, pain, victory......in other words life. I usually talk about my deepest loves and highest hopes here. The personal me, the feeling me, the spritual me........me.
This year I am going to be 65. Big deal says my head. Big deal says my heart and it kinda feels old for the very first time. I was talking to Ms. Maddy of Santa and the Mrs. the other day. She is like a sister from another mother to me. I've never in my whole life had a friend as true and wonderful as she. She hasn't been here in bloggyland for so long because she has computer illness. So understandably, it ain't as much fun when you can't comment or post. She has such wisdom and power and when I expressed my feelings about the getting older stuff, she helped me see that well....ya can't avoid it but you don't have to give into it. And I claim that as my own. Sounds simple but unless you've been knocking at the later chapters in your life, you just don't know the feeling and introspection. Thanks Maddy, I love you so.
Ms. April of The Angry Gnome is always the first to be a happy little bird and enthusiastic about whatever we speak of together. She is so creative and giving. She is a nut and has the best sense of humor. Her creations make me giggle. So when she hurt so deeply at the loss of her beloved Henry, I needed to do more than just say I'm sorry and all of you responded with open hearts and loving spirits. And once again, I'm renewed. Ms. April made the decision to get another Rotty puppy so that she could bear the days without Hank and I look at her and think how truly brave she is to bring Harold into her life so quickly. I think she is a gem. I've learned so much from her.
Ms. Magaly of Magaly Guerrero and Pagan Culture always delights me and makes me a better person. She challenges me to think in ways I wouldn't have if she hadn't burst into my life with energy and her fun, smart nature. She has asked for counsel and I have given it freely. She has given counsel and I have accepted it gladly. There is an easiness of sharing despite the age difference. Wisdom is wisdom no matter the source. And so today I will let you know....it is Ms. Magaly's birthday. We share that Aries passion. The fire, the tenacity, the drive (although mine is in park a lot more nowadays). I'm blessed to call her friend. Happy, happy birthday gorgeous girl with the soul soothing smile.
And just because I haven't pointed you out yet reader, doesn't mean I spontaneously won't combust in a loving statement about you in the days to come. Because that is what life is calling me to do. Slowly and methodically call attention to those that bring me closer to perfection. Those people who make me better. All of you.
So watch your six my lovelies.
