Samhain Blessings

Today is the feast of Samhain. The Wheel of the Year has turned and we're about to embark on another cycle, another round of journeying.

Today, the veil between the worlds is at it's thinnest and those who have gone before are the closest to us. It is said that the dead are never truly gone, if there is one person to hold their memory in their heart.

I would like to mark those who've gone before, and I would like to share this with you. It doesn't matter which spiritual path you walk upon, please share this with me. Feel free to be anonymous if you would prefer. But leave the names of those you would like remembered, and if you feel so moved, their relationship to you.

Those who still live in my heart:

Tricia - my friend
Helen - beloved grandmother
Herta - beloved grandmother
Angela - mother in law
Bambi - mother of my heart
Dennis - father in all senses of the word
Eric - teacher and mentor

I miss you.

    Alice - my friend's baby

    Mt grandparents...

  8. Thanks to you all for sharing the names of your loved ones with me and each other.

    And so The Wheel Turns and we prepare ourselves for what ever the new cycle will bring.

  9. Know where you're coming from hon, but I'm keeping my, (extensive), "In Memoriam", mostly, to myself...

    However, I will just mention my grandad, Frederick, who was gassed at Paeschendale in WW1, and spent the rest of his life coughing up fragments of his lungs...he lived on until 1970 and was a huge influence on my life...irreverent and rude to the end...that's him (and me)....

    I know I am a bit late but this is such a lovely thing to do:

    Mum - always loved and always missed

    Dad - I love you still

    Barbara - gone too soon

    Joyce - a gentle soul

    Sean - I know your still around sometimes

    These people come into my thoughts daily and sometimes they are around me still.


  11. D ~ never too late. Thank you for sharing your loved ones with us.
