Awakening to Spirit

Time is beckoning at my doorstep. I can no longer sit by idly waiting for whatever "it" is to come to me. I must move in the direction I am being guided. It has been many years and the time is NOW.

Hello, allow me to introduce myself..... I am first and foremost a mother. Mother of many along the way: children, family, friends, acquaintances and now grandchildren. It has been a most intriguing and impressive ride and it's not over yet!  Secondarily, I became a nurse.  Mother/Nurse.... could it be two of the same?!! I have cleaned many wounds from the inside out, literally and figuratively and have plastered many bandages over cuts, scrapes and perceptions. It got to a point where I didn't want to do it anymore. Do what, you ask. I didn't want to keep covering what it was that needed to be opened, drained and cleared permanently.

So, it was here that I started on my journey to find myself again. I knew I had lost a piece of myself somewhere in transition. Maybe it was the 20 or so moves I made in the last 30 some years!  It wasn't all that bad, I did have a house for my children for 17 years while they were growing up. Then I started pounding the pavement again! But somehow, I managed to find my way back to a place I never thought I would live again.  And to my amazement, I was provoked and stumbled across a group of like-minded individuals. Little did I know how that year would change the rest of my life.....
