When my son was born in 2003, a little over a year after I graduated high school, I had him baptized inthe Lutheran faith. It was a stipulation that mother imposed on me in order to live in her home. I have no regrets. My son is being brought up to be tolerant and accepting of each individual's choice. I teach him that there are many spiritual paths and that it is his responsibility to do the research and find what path suits his beliefs best. I teach him about all types of religions. He celebrates Christian holidays as well as my pagan holidays.
This was the first year he participated in one of my rituals (it was a Yule ritual, for all my fellow pagans out there). He thoroughly enjoyed it, and I enjoyed sharing my craft with him. When we finished the ritual he asked me if it would be possible for him to be included in some of my other rituals. I was more than happy to let him know that he would be happily accepted.
We just recently moved into new house! An expirence that I can honestly say was the biggest test of my sanity and strength in my entire life!! And up until I got pregnant again, I spent my days cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and making sure my family was well in order. I even did a little gardening! Then in October of 2011 I found out that we were expecting!! This will be my second child; my boyfriend's first. We are all excited for the arrival of a new baby. I feel slightly left out; this new baby, my boyfriend, and my son will all share a birth month if all things go according to plan.
The first trimester of my pregnancy was spent in bed or hovered over the toilet. Needless to say, not much was accomplished in those months. The second trimester is looking slightly better thus far. I can venture out of the house and even keep a meal or two down. I am still extremely exhausted and spend a lot of time on either the couch or curled up in my bed. But, the laundry gets done and I even manage to keep the house in a better state than the past month. Dishes still pile up, the dust bunnies, and dog fur still manage to cling to the corners. However, our home still plays host to some friends and family, who swear they don't SEE the dirt.
The best part of being a homeowner, something no one tells you, is how good it feels to have friends and family come over and feel just as at home as you do!
Apparently I found my starting point. It's hard to fit a lifetime (albeit only 28 years) into one post. Nor do I intend to. So for now... I believe I am going to say Blessed Be~
