BLESSINGS TO ALL AND WISHES FOR A LOVELY WEEK!
Hey, hey…It’s Hump Day…and boy could we all use a good laugh right about now. So, I had to stop in and post a new humor blog. I have been saving these up for a couple of weeks, so there are some goodies. I truly hope they give you moments of carefree laughter…before you have to go back “out there”.
My sincere Love and Blessings to you All!! Hang In There!

That is a question I have heard a great many people sounding out lately. Everywhere, in all corners of our lovely Mother Earth…”stuff” is happening. Unsettling things, events we never imagined, people and governments doing wild and erratic things…and it feels like the energy is only ramping up…and we wonder how to deal with it all, how we will continue to forge our own paths. In the midst of our confusion lies an impossible conundrum…
What To Believe In…Anymore.
I read a headline this week that said we have lost hope and have nothing more to Believe in. And I want to challenge that headline here. Because we absolutely DO have something left to Believe in. Even in the face of such things we appear to have no control over…we still have something solid, steady, and powerful to Believe in. And that is…Ourselves!
We may feel we are at a low point, and when we look out into the world, there is precious little to stake our hope and belief in the future on. And So…if we cannot find Belief out there…the most profound and sacred choice would be to…Believe in Ourselves.
Believe that we can still retain our Inner Light, our Inner Peace, and our Inner True Soul and Self…because nothing and no one can ever take those from us. And with those, we can still forge our lives in the best way we can to follow our paths…which we still can…and must…do.
By Believing in ourselves even in the face of all this confusion, it keeps the concept, the energy of Believe alive and real and resonates in the air and energy around us.
We cannot allow Belief and Hope to die. We must keep it alive, within ourselves, so that…no matter what…we still have US, our lives, and the Love and Light that we shine. It can and will make a difference. We must not stop Believing in that.
NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK IS OR ISN’T OUT THERE TO BELIEVE IN ANYMORE…THE MOST IMPORTANT AND LIFE AFFIRMING BELIEF…IS IN OURSELVES. THAT IS WHO AND WHAT WE BELIEVE IN…AND THAT CAN CHANGE ANYTHING!

I am so sorry for my absence! Life and health issues have caught up with me a bit, and I have had to leave aside some things for a moment. I miss posting and you all so much! I will admit my energy has been low and inspiration has been scarce with so much going on. But I absolutely Love…and it gives me so much Positive Energy and Joy…to see you still coming and reading. And the posts you are reading…I am so glad you are finding them and hope that they are helping you just a little bit to navigate our increasingly crazy lives and worlds*.
And, I Do believe we have to keep at it and, no matter what, we must not let go of Hope and our vision for a better world. Sometimes, the road to the destination is paved with rocks and potholes and dips and challenges. We still must carry on and hold our vision close and give it Power and Energy. Some days…that is easier said than done. And at the end of the day…all we can do…is Just Do Our Best.
Take one day at a time…and Just Do Our Best.
Try to look for the best in each day. There IS magic out there…and in our worlds.
Let us try not to expect ourselves to handle every day perfectly. It is chaos out there. Just Do Our Best.
Strive to do the best we can no matter how we feel any given day and let it be good enough.
So try to let the stress go…know you are doing your best…and find some moments of Happiness, Peace, and Love.
*I AM SO GRATEFUL TO ALL OF YOU WHO COME HERE TO READ MY HUMBLE WORDS, HOPEFULLY FINDING SOME COMFORT OR INSPIRATION THAT HELPS THE DAY GO BY IN A MORE POSITIVE WAY. YOU WARM MY HEART AND SOUL!! AND THAT HELPS MY DAY GO BY IN A MORE POSITIVE WAY! THANK YOU!!
“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.” ~ Gail Tsukiyama
“If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been.” ~ Robert Brault
“Sweater, n. Garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly.” ~ Ambrose Bierce
“There’s no bitch on earth like a mother frightened for her kids.” ~ Stephen King
“When your mother asks, “Do you want a piece of advice?” it’s a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.” ~ Erma Bombeck
“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~ Washington Irving
from The Desk of MarDrag:
As we enter a weekend that leads to Mother’s Day on Sunday, today’s post pays homage to those special and ever enduring loves of our lives…our Mothers…of which I am one. All of the above quotes state so well the attributes of Mothers and embraces the wide variety of the different characters we take on to handle, resolve, or be there in all the different situations and circumstances we are faced with every day. And we would not have it any other way.
We are all the things our families and loved ones need us to be…at any given moment…and our love is boundless. So too, is our forgiveness, and ability to look deeply and, even at the toughest moment, still love.
A Mothers love is vast…our capacity to endure limitless…and our protection impenetrable.
So, let us honor ALL the Mothers, Step Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers, Mothers In Law, Daughter Mothers, Mothers of the Animal Children and Inner Mothers and CareTaker Mothers…for from them all springs Life and Love…and with that Hope. Let us Nurture every Mother as she has Nurtured us. And let us not forget to honor that one last Mother on the list…our Mother Earth…who hangs in the heavens and supports us, just so we can have Life.
BLESSINGS AND LOVE TO ALL MOTHERS AND MOTHER FIGURES!
MAY YOU HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND!
