Sure. Just credit it to Kasie Vik or Amejisuto. The latter is my pen name for writing. It means Amethyst in Japanese. I was on an anime kick when I chose it and it’s stuck to me since. I’m glad you liked it that much to want to use it. :blush:

You’re welcome LImeberry. I’m glad you liked it!

Thank you, I’m glad it’s been well received. I couldn’t think of anything else to do. LOL.

@TheTravelWitch @Amethyst @Francisco @Abs53

Thank you all for your concern and well wishes. We went out to survey the damage Thursday afternoon because Thursday morning we still had a lot of water everywhere. It’s been so dry, and we live in a hilly area, so the water is gone now. But our roads are really washed out. We live on a dirt road, so it’s an easy fix, but some roads around here are going to need a lot of work. There were 82 road closings in our county alone. We had some downed trees in our neighborhood. Two went down within inches of my neighbor’s house! All the schools were closed. My youngest was supposed to have Occupational Therapy, and they were closed.

@Francisco I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with the fires. Please stay safe. It is my sincere wish that people would take global warming seriously. I’m glad you’re ok, and I’ll add you to my prayer list

I’m glad you’re okay @PuppetMama! That sounds horrible, and there are other storms headed towards the Gulf I heard. Stay safe!

Yesterday the smoke started to recede with the wind and we were able to breathe again. I am so grateful for it! I will prepare a topic about it. However, the news are still bad in many parts of Oregon and California.

Good thoughts going out to all of you dealing with weather wrath Stay safe.

I took the time to sit back and think of what I am thankful for. This group is 1. I am thankful for my health, my fur babies, having food on the table and a roof over my head. with the pandemic growing once again here it is hard to stay positive but at least i know you are all here :slight_smile:

I have had a busy few days and have missed the group immensely! So first off for my gratefulness is my children, they are my reason and motivation to face each day with every good intention I have. I am grateful for my grandbabies because they remind me I am not as old as I sometimes feel… :joy: to always appreciate the little moments we have together. I am grateful for my husband, Tim. Because he balances my chaotic mind when I dont even realize how far gone I can become. I am grateful for each of you and the closeness I feel within our coven. I am grateful for Mother Earth and all its beauty. I am grateful for myself and my craft. I am grateful for every mistake that led me to better choices, for tears that showed me how to smile, and for Meditation that taught me how to slow down and just be, even for only 5 minutes.
My son and grandbabies came for a visit this past Thursday thru Sunday and we had a great time, which was so much needed.
I spent today cleaning the house, and moving things around. The energy in my home feels really great today!
I lit a candle and burned some dragons blood incense to kick off the mood for this Mabon celebration week.
Blessed Be,

I’m so sorry that I missed the challenge! I haven’t missed one since I have been a member. I will definitely be participating in this weeks challenge though. I took a week or so off to deal with my anxiety and things at the house before school starts. I will talk to everyone and be sure to participate in the next challenge.

Yes, I do feel better but still not what I wanted. I may do my ritual over again.

No worries at all, @Siofra! :blush: I’ll have a brand new challenge out today- you are very welcome to join if you are feeling up for it! I know you have a lot going on right now and are dealing with a lot- your health is the most important thing and should always come first :+1: Take as much time as you need to rest and recover- there will always be future challenges and activities! I hope you are getting some rest after the recent stress in your life, and are already starting to feel better. Lots of love! :heart:

Glad to hear you are feeling better, @christina4! :two_hearts: Sometimes new experiences and insights can come when re-doing a ritual or spell. If you don’t feel complete with how it went, definitely give it another try and see if you can find closure! Good luck and let us know how it goes :raised_hands:

Sorry guys I missed the challenge. However, I did it tonight! I did the letting go ritual with the leaves. I set up my altar on my dining table. Decided I would leave it this way for the week of Mabon. I went and bought some fall-inspired items with the theme of the Equinox in mind. I gave thanks to many wonderful things in my life as well as discovery this Amazing site with all you wonderful people.

Yay! My first Mabon! May I continue to walk this amazing path and keep learning to elevate my spirituality.
Thank you,
Blessed be.
