July's Full Blessing Moon

Tomorrow's full moon is the blessing moon, according to my calendar. It is a time to count my blessings, and to offer blessings to others.
We all know that gratitude is a state of grace for which we all strive (at least I'm sure the folks who read this blog do). I also know that I don't spend nearly enough of my day in gratitude. I complain about the heat and humidity and a thousand other vexing things every day. If I spent the same amount of time being grateful...... you get the picure. So tomorrow night, as I bathe myself and my stones in Grandmother Moon's blessed light, I will spend time in gratitude.
Years ago, I was at a retreat where I saw a nun bless a parish priest. She held his head in her hands and kissed him on both cheeks. I remember thinking, "I bet the Church won't really let her do that - priests are higher up the ladder and who is this lowly nun to do this?" I don't have a clue whether or not my thoughts were accurate according to Catholic dogma, but I do know I learned a valuable lesson that day.
I learned that we ALL can offer blessings to everyone, and those blessings are honored by Spirit. So, bless someone today.
Blessings from me to you!

New Tarot Blog Created!

Greetings All!
I have created a new blog just for my Tarot Meditations: I felt the need to separate my Tarot meditations from my other musings, so that the Tarot meditations were all in order and not interrupted by other ideas I'd like to share. Please become a "follower" on the new blog, if it's of interest to you! In the meantime, I'd appreciate you staying with this one as I write my views on much to come!
