In the moon of the budding trees
I was gifted new eyes to see
All of the shifting shape and ways you can be
Wake the dreams into realities – Nahko Bear

Hello Mother, hello Daughter…
I rise early once again, the sound of the river that lulls me to sleep at night now lifts me from slumber at dawn. Soon the birds will begin to sing. I like the quiet of dawn and being the first to wake.
Today we explored a trail outside the sanctuary.
There I found a tiny snail on the forest floor and pondered these questions.
What will I see today?
What will I notice in myself?
What will it teach me?
Where will I see it reflected in my own life?
*Thank you Cheryn Odolecki Bolasci and Ana Garcia for the snail and butterfly photos!
Today the moms made special spoons to bless the meals that they make to nourish their families…
While the daughters stamped pencils to bless the words that they write.
There was a new visitor who brought us much laughter.
Our wood rounds that we prepped yesterday were now dry, so we began rubbing away the paper pulp to reveal the image that we transferred to the wood. The wood rounds were a gift from Walnut Hollow. You can read more about them here! We are very grateful for their generosity!
It’s was a day filled with creativity…
and some heartfelt talking…
The mothers and daughter painted wooden bracelets to exchange during our closing ceremony. The bracelets were donated by the generous folks at DIY Bangles. DIY Bangles is a pioneer in unfinished wood bangles made from high quality tropical hardwood.
Thank you, DIY Bangles, for your generosity and support!!!
Made so & rooted by love,
