Are we witches or people who honor our Earth


They call us witches
because they see
we do things differently

We talk to the plants
using them to help
heal our wounds

We gladly hug the trees
We dance in the darkness
of the forest
around moon lit fires
giving thanks our prayers
are heard and received

Are we witches?
Maybe we are people
of the earth who see
how to honor our Mother Earth

To us it is to be in gratitude
for all She offers us
Thus, finding ways to live
in harmony with her

Are we witches?
Only you can decide that……………

what did I lack

We talk of how we lack
we lack work, money, loving relationships
a better car, a bigger home
seems we are good at talking about what we
want and don’t have
how terrible we feel
and how we believe our goals and dreams are hard to reach

What if………..
instead of complaining about what we don’t have
we start being grateful for what we do have

I found out long ago it is easier to find everything wrong with my life
and let people know how yuckie I was feeling
then to find the good in everything in my life
I realized by focusing on the good I had way less to talk about
I found myself in my heart in gratutide for what I did have
and somehow found myself smiling and enjoying my life
from a different point of view

the changes came slowly
yet they still came
filling myself with wonderful moments

Yes, every so offen the yuck comes back
to remind me I am human
which means to me, I forgot to be humble
so it’s humble pie for dinner that night
I give thanks for the reminder that I continue to learn from my past
how to be a better person today
