{...grandmothers...} 30:30

:::honoring my Grandmothers today:::

A photo of my Grandma Marge and me
along with a tiny tea cup of hers
that I adored growing up.

Lockets from my Great-Grandmother, Louise,
whom I never met.  I received these lockets
after my Grandma Marge passed.

A brooch from my Grandma Millie.
She was a school teacher and raised
seven! children on her own.

A hymnal from my Great-Grandma Mae
that I loved and she gave me in 1973.
She was a lefty like me.

Today, when the barrier between the worlds
 is whisper-thin and when magic, old magic, 
sings its heady and sweet song to anyone who cares to hear it.

{...lady bug...} 29:30

Oh, how I love when a day starts out unexpectedly good...

:::1::: received this gorgeous card in the mail {love, love, love real mail!}

:::2::: ordered a "real" camera {finally & woohoo!!}

Then, out of nowhere, this lady bug lands on my desk. 

If Ladybug has flown into your life:

The appearance of a Ladybug heralds a time of luck in which our wishes begin to be fulfilled.  
Higher goals and new heights are now possible. 
Worries begin to dissipate. New happiness comes about.
 Ladybug also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. 
Let things flow at their natural pace. 
In the due course of time, our wishes will all come true.
 Alternatively she could be signalling that you can leave your worries behind 
and that new happiness is on its way.
 Ladybug signals you to to not be scared to live your own truth. 
Protect your truth and know that it is yours to honor.

{ eclipse...} 24:30

I managed to get my youngest son to go with me to see the partial solar eclipse on Thursday -
a new moon & a partial solar eclipse -  
but the clouds took over by the horizon, so we were unable to see it.  
So, we enjoyed this beautiful view instead.
