Some Times things are not as hard as we made them

I have been meaning to share this little funny story with you for a morning of Imbolc I was getting dressed and talking to my husband as Little ran circles around us.

Me “Honey, Today is Imbolc”

DH “What does that mean”

me “Well some people call it Candlemass and it is where groundhog’s day from. Its the astrological midpoint between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox.  The light is getting stronger and we notice that the days are starting to stretch out. It is also the time the ewes start making milk.”

DH blinks back blank stare “What does this mean to me”

me “oh lots of candles and Quiche for dinner”

DH “oh cool I like symbolic”

me “no baby Imbolc”

DH “whatever I like it”

As I have told you my hubbs is not Wiccan and actually HATES religion. He loves me though and bless his heart he really dose try hard to understand and learn. He usually can even keep from making funny faces, while I wax on about some witchy thing, but that is hard work for him.  The point is if you see the conversation above up until the end we are really having two different conversations. I am trying to explain to him (in 30 seconds or less) something based on my belief system and the meaning behind it because it is meaningful to me.  He is wondering what I am yammering on about. Sometimes just a simple sentence of what it means to the other person is all that is needed or matters. In time if they want to and even if they don’t they will catch on to the other parts but in the mean time it is rather comforting to know that when I tell my hubby its breakfast for dinner he says “oh the full moon is tonight” we both win

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
