Ta Da!!!!! Happy Halloween!!! And, another award!!!

Here it is folks!! My blog in costume!!


What do you think? He's scary isn't he?


I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment, I simply don't know how to describe my joy and happiness.


Bella Foxglove, over at Wanderings of a Wondering Mind, has again provided me with a blog to be proud of, and I am most grateful.


Then, to my surprise, on top of doing that, she left a comment for me on my last post telling me she had something for me on her blog.


So, I went over to check it out, and here it is!!!





Now, ladies and gentlemen, this is indeed a great honor.


It's been hard sometimes writing my feelings down for complete strangers to peruse, well not "strangers", but you know, people I don't know personally.


I write in my blog as often as the spirit moves me, and I have put a lot of really personal stuff in my posts that I was afraid would turn people away, make them feel like I was a jerk or something.


I was completely wrong of course, as all of you have left me such wonderful comments, and I'm glad that I was able to be so honest and not be judged.


This award has made me feel all the more comfortable about writing exactly what I think and feel, and knowing that all of you out there in the blog community will welcome each post with no biases or judgments.


Oh and one more thing.


I am flattered that Bella would recognize and acknowledge that I am completely in touch with my "feminine" side by inducting me into a "sisterhood". I am truly honored. (Is that legal? Can I really be in a sisterhood?)


It's really been a great release and very therapeutic to write in this blog, but there is so much more I want and need to write about. 


I want to start posting more on my thoughts about being a pagan, especially in a house in which I cannot practice as I'd like, I want to learn so badly.
I want to get in touch with my spirit guides, and more of my totem animals. I have learned so much about the spiritual and myself since I started down this path, but there is so much more I want to know.


Who is my goddess? I know of my god, Cernunnos, but in my visions of him, the goddess is there, but she is behind me, obscured from view. I have gotten a sense of her being a mist, a bluish mist. I really want to find out who she is, and really get in contact with her, commune with her.


But, that is a subject of another post.


Thank you Bella, for making my day wonderful. You are an amazing person.


Oh yeah, and before I go, stayed tuned for a post in which I bestow this honesty award on to some of you out there, you have truly been an inspiration to me.


Have a great night everyone!!

Congratulations! And being a pagan that has flown under the radar in a catholic household for years just let me know if you need some "alternate descriptions" of what you are doing that will be outsider approved =).

Super-spooky! I love it!

I agree with the Traveler - there are many things that can be 'renamed' so that you can practice your way!

Blessed Be!

Hi,

Your blog looks great, being a newbie myself (both at being Pagan and blogging)I can empathise with how you feel. We've had some rather interesting comments from people who were meant to be friends but all I can say is hang in there and take a deep breath sometimes!

best wishes all, Jen
