Last night, as I traveled home from my 6th wedding to officiate in 3 years, I felt the company of Grandmother Moon. It had been an touching ceremony, and my mind danced around ideas of love and chosen relationships. As I started out, I could see her in my rear-view mirror, Full Moon Momma, but as I turned to come home, she quietly led the way. She glided brilliantly in the night’s sky. Farm houses and livestock were silhouetted against the horizon and the glow of my hometown beckoned me like a lighthouse hidden behind the natural curvature of the earth.
As I drove, I thought about the upcoming month. I feel as if I have come through the birth canal. I was not sure last week at this time what life would look like on the other side, but I did know that I wanted to be mindful in my interaction with it. With my recent clean bill of health after a medical scare, I am not letting the lessons learned escape me. That is why doing this month’s dream board (along with the other Creatives from Jamie Ridler Studio) is so important to me.
This month, my hubby and I are opening the doors of our home to a friend and her son. Soon our house will be booming with the addition of this other family. We are creating our own commune, filled with people we love and trust. It is an experiment in hoping and helping. We have each felt guided to share our lives with one another. This dreamboard reminds me that we can write our own tale, together. This house may belong to my husband and I, but we want our house to be a home to our new extended family.
Here’s wishing for a peaceful transition, for creative problem solving, lots of self-care, and collaborative understanding. So let it be!
