Dear Winter

Dear Winter,

Welcome!  Your arrival is evident by the silver thaw that greets us this morning.

I bid you a request, if you will consider it please:

If you would set your low at this temperature this year, I would really appreciate it.

Really! You know 20° as opposed to -20° ❄

Seriously, we take you seriously at 20° – you are a force to be reckoned with and we admire your power… so, no need to go overboard this year. OK?

Oh… and, and Maybe, just maybe, not deposit 5 feet of snow at one time this year, and definitely not three consecutive storms of multiple feet of snow with only a few days shoveling-time in-between each. Yes – let’s try that.

Let’s try it for this year and get together over hot-chocolate in March to say goodbye.  Oh, yes, (P.S.) if you could depart by mid-March this year to make room for our next guest, Spring, I know you would gain many, many friends.

Just sayin, please consider it.

For this year.

Thank you.

~ Twinkle

Mother’s Day Blues Gathering and Ritual

If Mother’s Day is difficult for you, please join us Saturday, May 13th 7:00pm-9:00pm at Twinkle’s Place where all your emotions will be held in sacred space.

Mother’s Day is incredibly difficult for many women.

Women who have had challenging circumstances with their own mothers.

Women who have difficult situations with their children.

Women whose mother’s have died.

Women who carry pain in their hearts daily having had their child or children die.

Single or divorced mothers who share their children with another parent in less than ideal circumstances.

Single mothers who carry the full responsibility of sole-parenting all by themselves.

Stepmothers who struggle to live up to their stepchildren’s expectations.

Biological mothers who worry that they are being replaced by their child’s stepmother.

Adoptive mothers who carry concerns about biological mothers reappearing in their children’s lives.

Women who are estranged from their children.

Women who have miscarried children.

And all manner of modern day family situations that create complicated emotions for women.

And, also,

Women who would dearly love to have children, yet are infertile.

And,

Women who have chosen to not have children, yet mother in many ways.

Join us as we gather in ritual to honor who we are, and where we are, on our journeys.

Saturday, May 13th 7:00pm-9:00pm
