Y’all I’m literally almost in tears right now. I went out into my yard to harvest the coltsfoot that grows wild in my yard as well as some buttercups and to get a few of the clover blossoms before my mom mows them down or the dogs eat them and I find this guy…
This is the very first one I’ve ever found myself. My Justin found one for me when we first started dating a couple of years ago and I have it pressed in a book some where but I found this one myself and I’ve looked every day on account of the rough year I’m having. That’s gotta be a good thing.
Also my baby sister ran me to town to run an errand this morning when she went to get her school books and I saw a bunch of magnolia trees on the campus and told her if I wasn’t at the car that I’d be harvesting a few magnolia blossoms so I could make some oils. Not a total lie but I was sure my secret was safe (today was the first time I had seen my sister in over a year so I hadn’t told her I’m a witch yet) and I gather my blossoms and her her books and then we head to run my errands. I run in and it takes me maybe 10 minutes tops. I get back in the car and she says “I don’t know if you can use these or not but I got you a couple of flowers off that vine over there. I know ‘earth witches’ use all kinds of flowers and plants and rocks in their spells”. I laughed as I corrected her terminology but thanked her none the less and asked her how she knew and she Said “I can just tell. You’ve always been special and different but now you’re so at peace with yourself. You just shine differently and I did a lot of research for the last book I wrote.” (Oh yeah my sister is a published author and you can actually buy her books on Amazon and stuff) she had picked me some morning glorys.
Y’all when I tell you I’ve never felt more blessed to have her as my sister it’s the truth. I’ve been struggling so hard with depression and self loathing lately that if it weren’t for this forum I’d have already given up on life by now and then my sister hits me out of nowhere with such kind words and a subtle hint that she still gets me and supports my beliefs right when I needed it most.
Maybe it’s the hormones but I’ve been overwhelmed by my small blessings today and all I’ve been able to do today is cry. But at least for the first time in months it’s a happy cry
