Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

This was a poem shared by our Spiritual Rap leader, the last time we gathered together and I thought it appropriate to share it with you as we move into Giving Thanks during the Thanksgiving holiday. While I know winter is fast approaching, let us savor the final moments where the colors show their beauty and crunch under our feet, while our blessings are magnified by the richness of sharing and caring.

I am particularly grateful to each of you who take your precious time to show up and support me in my journey and it is my honor to visit you and support you in yours. Most of us have never met in person but our connection is always rich with caring hearts and love. It truly has been a gift to me and I feel blessed beyond measure by the gift of your visits and comments, rich writing and care which is stitched into the inner fiber of my being. I learn from each and everyone of you daily and to me learning is part of growing, expanding and living life to its fullest, until we take our last breath, so I thank you from the deepest part of my heart.

We are reading Braiding Sweetgrass in our S.R. group which is so rich in beautiful poetic dialogue, that I feel like I am almost sitting with her having tea. The rich collection of stories and indigenous wisdom written and curated by Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer is a gift to the senses. What I particularly love about it is that I can flip to any page and find insight and wisdom without having to follow an order. Many of our friends have posted incredible reviews on their blogs.

My kids are flying in starting tomorrow night and with the contractors in full action, finishing electrical and insulation, it’s questionable I will be here much. We have 20 coming here for dinner so I will be fully immersed in cooking, moving furniture, work, etc to accommodate our ever expanding group. If I miss you, have a wonderful week giving thanks for your many blessings with those you love. I am grateful for you.

I know that holidays can bring out the best and worst in people. Do yourself a favor and don’t take anything personal. Not everyone has the ability to communicate from their higher selves which can sting at times, I know. Keep a grateful heart, knowing we can always turn to each other for solace and care. As we know, gratitude begets gratitude.

Remember to choose foods that you love, that nurture your body and soul, instead of stuffing yourself if feelings get hurt and ruffled. Get out and move, it does wonders in clearing your head and burning those calories. I wish you love and happiness as you celebrate your many gifts of the season. I particularly love this day because the only gifts are the gifts of presence.

Have a wonderful week ahead if I miss you. I’ll be back with a published post from MastecadoresUsa, The Gift of Loving Perfectly Imperfect on Monday November 28th.

Kris, our fearless leader at the head and just a few of us to share in the joy of the day. Note my friend at the other end with her beautiful butterfly shirt to match her table cloth. She actually didn’t realize it until I pointed it out.

Blessings of Love Always, All Days!

    For Thanksgiving, so many points-of-view. There are many exiles roaming about with their stories. Eve is an exile with her knowledge. Prodigy of Eve and Turkey are in the laboratory with a beaver. The turkey is too fat to fly and the baby beaver has been observed in the lab. Skywoman is with the wild turkeys and beavers, her sweetgrass waving in the wind. Eve is a scientist.
    In the lab, Eve plays the sounds of running water for beavers who have never been outside. The beavers take the sticks they have been given and built a dam in front of the loud speakers where the sounds are coming from. They haven’t forgotten everything.
    At the Thanksgiving day table before the meal is brought out, everyone looks up at the shaft of light coming through an open skylight window above the table. Skywoman drops with a bang onto the center of the table with beavers, wild turkeys, and muskrats. She invites everyone to come outside by the river to hear a bluegrass concert.
    The table has been disrupted so Eve’s daughter calls the police and an exterminator. Adam announces, “Quick, everyone to McD for hamburgers and fries.”
    The D place is closed for repairs. But everyone is grateful for the laughs, and Skywoman offers to pardon them all with the forgiveness of the sweetgrass.

What a perfect poem, Cindy. I live, not necessarily love the lines, “A a child of my culture, I am seldom truly at peace with what I have.” It takes these gentle reminders from blogging friends like you that I have so much in your friendship and in the harvest of my life. Well done, Cindy. Have a wonderful holiday with family and friends. See you next week. πŸ™‚

Wonderful poem, Cindy. Sorry I can’t be more enthusiastic than that. We’ve been really sick here with some kind of awful cough/cold/virus that’s going around (not COVID). Over the last 22 days I think I’ve been sick for at least 15 of them. I’m so very tired of it. Today I’m going to bundle up and venture outside for some sun and fresh air. Been down for so long I can’t remember the last time I was outside. Haven’t even seen my Sunshine Colette πŸ˜”

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Cindy! Beautiful post with beautiful fall pictures. And I wish your children a safe flight to mama’s and back home! We’ve been enjoying these last vestiges of Fall sitting in the backyard swing in front of the fire pit and warm fire.

And you’re right that many families can have a difficult and stressful time during the holidays. Here’s hoping and praying they can relax, enjoy each other more, and live in the moment.

Have a lovely weekend! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
