G is for Grateful

There are a lot of sayings that go something like “if you’re not grateful for what you have got you will never be grateful for what you get”

On one hand this seems silly, but of course I would be grateful for a huge house or more whatever it is you think you need more of. On the other hand it makes perfect sense that if you are not grateful for what you have now it simply means you are not paying attention.

This may or may not seem to have anything to do with paganism but it is deeply ingrained in my practice. It is something that I practice daily and at times in my life when I have been most destitute I would make myself list 3 things I was thankful for, grateful for every 5 minuets. If you do not have gratitude, you have nothing. You have no joy.

And so Friday 5

  1. I am grateful that I get to snuggle with my daughter
  2. I am grateful that I live in a town that I feel comfortable being out as a witch.
  3. I am grateful for the wonderful people who have been brought into my life.
  4. I am grateful even for the ones that have caused me grief and pain for they helped me grow
  5. I am grateful to have a home with a garden.

What are you grateful for today?

Where were the women? I grew up in the Presbyterian Church, and it wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I ever saw a woman offer a prayer in church. That was when they hired a woman with a Masters of Divinity to be an Associate Pastor in charge of Christian Education, meaning they had hired another woman to be in charge of Sunday School and this one had a higher degree. I, very early on in my Sunday School career used to ask, why can’t women pray in front of the church? Why can’t women give the sermon? Why is the only place girls are allowed to be in the front of the church, the choir loft? Why do we only mention Mary at Christmas? Why was Eve bad and not Adam? Why is it all right for Mary to be an unwed mother but not me?…

I love all these reasons. I also love that my kid will eat veggies right off the plate and when she occasionally tries to tell me she doesn’t like a particular vegetable such as broccoli I can say. Oh your silly remember how you ate it out of the garden? Or the days that I try to harvest say a bunch of carrots and half of them disappear from the sink as wash them and she munches happily.

Re-Grow Roots

Growing a garden is an absolutely beautiful experience that gives me absolutely enjoyment and I can’t imagine my life without it! So today I’m going to share Ten Reasons to Grow a Garden to hopefully inspire those who are on the fence about it…

Save money on food

You can certainly spend a whole lot of money on your garden, but I tend to find almost everything I need for free or very inexpensively. Here at our apartment garden we practice no-till gardening so we use lots of nice amendments to build up our soil. Manure, straw, and compost cost next to nothing. All of our plants are started from seed sourced from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. A packet of seeds goes a long way and most will last for a few years! I also love to have local seed exchanges to get new, different seeds and make new friends.

Romancing the Bee

The March 2013 full moon will be out all night on March 26, shining in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden. 

The moon turns precisely full on March 27 at 9:27 Universal Time (4:27 a.m. CDT in the central U.S.). In North America, that means the moon reaches the crest of full phase in the wee hours before sunrise on March 27. But no matter where you live worldwide, watch for the brilliant lamp of the full moon to light up the nighttime from dusk till dawn. Look for the moon low in the east at dusk – at its highest point in the sky around midnight – and low in the west before the sun comes up.

For the Northern Hemisphere, this is the first full moon of springtime. We in this hemisphere call it the Pink Moon, to celebrate the return of certain

“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.
