The Magical Season of Love!

As we are seeing at this time, the excitement grows, the smiles broaden and the feeling of the season is all around. And they tell me there is no such thing as magic! I beg to differ. We are creating it, one and all, by our actions and attitudes. I see it in the children’s eyes as they smile, the parents fulfilling their hopes and their dreams, and even the grandparents thinking they are past it all, but still realise it is a wonderful time to share with those that they love.

To all that I have met in this special place of blogger’s, with the open arms and welcome that would do visitors of state proud, I would like to thank you for that invitation to express myself with what I believe in, in your world. I have been shown so many beautiful, wonderful and expressive people on so many levels, that I feel I am in a ‘magic’ land. One of hope and wonder for all those things that we hold dear. And never an admonition for doing so.

So from my truth within, I bid you all the ‘magic’ that is in my heart, for allowing me to be a part of your family and in doing so, feel like I’m home each time we chat and laugh as only friends can do. And for the season itself, I also bid you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with more of that creative spark that keeps us coming back for more. I look forward to more sharing in the future that I know will come from you all, from that beautiful place inside, that is the ‘magic’ of your truth within.

Love, light and blessings,

The Versatile Blogger Award!

Versatile Blogger AwardThank you Tammy (http://tlohuis.wordpress.com/) for the Versatile Blogger Award. Tammy is a beautiful lady that has risen above much pain, physically and emotionally to find a niche in this blogging world where her abilities as a writer, during her day to day (and sometimes night) life, has enabled like minded others to realise their gifts, and like her, share their world in such a way that it gives an understanding to those that do not realise what it means to be in this position for most of their waking moments. By doing this it also creates a sharing within that same community to enable them to feel the empathy of all those caring souls, to bring a smile or some encouragement when the limits of living has taken it’s toll. That would be one of the strongest things I have found within the community, is that it’s ability to care, help and give from such a beautiful place, that I am glad to be accepted as one of those many who are a part of this blogging world. Again, thank you Tammy.

I’d like to now present this award to 15 very deserving bloggers who enable me to enjoy, laugh and learn, and be accepted into this wonderful community.

These are the seven things about myself that may be interesting, unusual and maybe even a little scary:

1.  I talk with spirit constantly.
2.  I have written my blog with the urging of spirit.
3.  I am a Remedial Massage, Bowen and Reiki Therapist.
4.  I used to smoke for just 18 years. Gave it up 18 years ago. Now doing the slow drowning death with Emphysema. Give it up guys, trust me, I’m only 54 and I thought I had forever. (well, I do, but not like this).
5.  I have 2 great kids. 1 girl and 1 boy. Which somehow turned into 5 grandkids. (I think it had something to do with the drinking water).
6.  I love listening to Deva Premal. And talk about a lovely resonating voice.
7.  I love to give from a place of healing. Sometimes I make mistakes, but it is always done with love and forgiveness, to others and myself (I have to learn too, I don’t get excused from this journey, even if I do have an awareness, it is more so because of that).
