Summer has passed and child heading to University

I can’t believe how quickly this spring and summer has gone by. All my days tend to run together and it hasn’t felt like the break from the mundane that summer should be. Maybe it just doesn’t matter anymore. I am sure the children have been bored outside of screentime. No pools or games, no parties, too much heat, and days filled with rain. The bugs have been extra as well. Ah, don’t mind me, I am in a weird and depressed headspace.

More importantly, I wanted to happily share with you that Dawn has successfully graduated from high school and is on her way to University in just a few weeks. Scholarships, grants, and loans have all been applied for, yet $1,300 balance remains out-of-pocket for her freshman year.

Dawn has asked me to share her Amazon wishlist of necessities for school [computer is want, not need]. The list can be found here:

And anyone who is able to contribute any amount to offset that $1,300, it would truly be appreciated. Dawn has Venmo app, her account there is “@Freedom-Waters”. She can accept Zelle, which I think is her phone number or email, but I don’t want to list them here. Reach out to me if you wish to use Zelle. I, also, have paypal thru email; just put “school” or “college” in the note section. If you use something different to move monies around, just contact me, I may already have it set up and just haven’t thought of it.

I believe Dawn is going to love being there and succeed at University. Electronic Media and Broadcasting is her chosen major. She is more like me than I care to admit, but will go so much farther than I could have dreamed for myself. I want all my children to have their best life and escape my shadow. Not all Moms are easy to live with and I know I have been challenging at times. But I am proud and so full of love.

I can’t promise that I will do any better about keeping up my blog, but I will check in from time to time as long as I am able. And I will definite post updates on Dawn as I can.

Much love and many blessings to you all as we quickly head toward Lughnasadh and the beginning of the new school year. Hope will be in high school and Quin is starting 4th grade. How the time has passed!


22 years

Missing my angel baby, Viviane, and so thankful for my rainbow children. It has been a good day, even with a bit of the blues.


Blessed Samhain 2020

And Happy Halloween.  We had a wonderful night around the fire with family and part of our Circle, socially distanced Samhain ritual, and mulled cider. It was so good to see faces that I have missed so long.

I hope each of you were able to spend time with a loved one today. This Blue Moon Samhain did not disappoint (and I didn’t miss trick or treat too terribly). Just have to gear up to lead Samhain discussion during Zoom church in the morning. Fingers crossed.

Stay warm and don’t lose hope just yet. We are a resilient species. This New Year holds no surprises, we must stay our course, until we can hug each other once again.
