I’ve always been intrigued by the names that many cultures have used to identify the moons as they wax and wane through our sky through the seasons. This month’s moon, in the Cherokee tradition, is called the “Flower Moon.” (You know that warms my heart.) And, being part Cherokee makes that extra-special to me.
Today is the full moon, and if the weather holds, I’m planning to be out on the water kayaking with my son to enjoy the sunset and moonrise to celebrate the blossoming of spring and enough warmth to be comfortably back out on the water – and, of course, the flowers. Beautiful!
Think about what you already do – like doing more outdoor activities, getting your boat out, shifting your clothes, spring-cleaning your house, and turn it into a celebration. Make it fun!
Everything we do CAN be a celebration – it is all in the attitude of appreciation and joy that we bring to it.
I recently traveled to Boston and visited gardens belonging to friends and family there. Here are just a few of the flowers blooming near Boston at the Flower Moon – quite a festival of colors! (The blue ones are Forget Me Nots; the white ones are Daphne, and the orangy ones are Quince. The yellow flower at the top of the page is Kerria.)
Affirmation:I celebrate the beauty and blossoming in my life!
In Joy and With Love,
