First I should say that we are headed out on vacation later this afternoon. I am Thrilled. I think it is a much needed break from the daily stress that the family really needs right now. I am so thankful that we have the ability to do this and while we are not doing anything exotic I am thrilled we can afford a little road trip to family. That said I am guessing I wont be blogging from my in-laws. For one I plan on being in the pool with Little mostly and for two i’m not even bringing my laptop.
We should be back sometime around the full moon so don’t worry this is not one of those i’m going on vacations and never come back to the blog type posts. I also wont be working on my book while I am away. While nothing would give me more pleasure (aside from the pool bit) I am just not willing to transport all the items I would need and have the conversation about what it is with my in-laws. I love them dearly and they are sweet wonderful people, but they are not ready for that whole conversation.
Which brings me to the rambling thought of am I don’t more harm then good not having that conversation. I mean it really boggles the mind that in this day an age with all the information out there that some people still have negative views of what witches are. I mean it is one thing to have a negative view because some one choose a different religious path then you but then all the hate and lies around Witches seems really extreme at times. I and I have to wonder, how much do we contribute to it?
if we are in the broom closet then we are not having open and frank conversations with people who love us and know that were not crazy (ok well my husband thinks i’m crazy but I am pretty sure all husbands think their wives are crazy just like all parents think their child is gifted. ) What are we so scared of? Or what am I so scared of really. It is not like she can disown me or toss me out and in truth she wouldn’t love me any less because she is one of those wonderful people that love with open arms and heart. Something to contemplate. by the way did I mention my kid woke me up at 3:30 am this morning? please excuse any lack of sense to lack of sleep. Bright Blessings!
