As always wonderful things to think about! My father's Mother was Jewish! And I used to do something that would honor my mother or fathers time that they passed. Ie "get a massage or my father was raised in Mississippi (born in Illinois) and LOVED peach ice cream.
I love your authenticity and inspiration. Hugs love prayers.
Lovely to see your smiling face this morning. :) Remind me to tell you about a ritual I did before my first child was born. Thanks for this!
A weekly renewal ritual was practiced in my family after my husband abandoned the family. I was a full time student, I worked and was a full time mother. Friday night was child focused; no work & no studying. Money was ‘slimy’ but we set a beautiful table and we ate by candlelight. A simple meal and weekly renewal acknowledging that a higher power was with us.
Good morning Laura,
What a wonderful message!
Some day let me tell you about the ritual I performed about the loss of many babies.
I love hearing your voice so VLOGGING is a great option for all of us to hear your actual voice.
I am identified as “anonymous”. Money was “slim” as in skinny and not slimy. The children loved eating by candlelight and it marked a new beginning with a fresh start. ...and then the next Friday night ritual to look forward to. Ahhhh, renewal...
Loved the blogging. I too have found rituals very important and significant.
Almost all self-created and implemented alone. Deaths, divorces, and painful, unwanted, separations were usually the impetus. Your lovely sharing brought back painful, but very meaningful, rituals for Me. As always, THANK YOU1
Rituals are very helpful. I didn't use to appreciate them but I sure do now. Lovely talk about them, thank you.
Thank you, as always, for this very important reminder. I share this belief in the importance of rituals, whether they include others or not. Seeing and hearing you in addition to your insights is a special gift.
With love and gratitude,
I really relate to your comment about the “ calendar “ in life...
