Well, that was interesting. It wasn’t the simple, beautiful ceremony I imagined. It was a fun time though, except for the wind. My husband might need a lesson or two on the meaning of the word respect. He is all science so I knew his heart wouldn’t be in the ceremony but I had hoped that his love for me would at least get his head into it. I think that might have been a timing issue since he started the BBQ before the ceremony so he was worried about the coals the whole time. The spot wasn’t the best either. We picked a small area in a local park that was pretty but on a hill. The whole park is a hill and I picked the least hilly spot I could find. And the wind! Oh, in the names of all the Goddesses and Gods, the wind!! Everything blew over at least twice! I forgot the table I was going to use so we were set up on the box in the grass…
Even with all that went differently than how I had planned or envisioned it to be but the job got done. I fell much better about Butterfly having her open heart surgery. I know I can’t protect her from everything and as a I am not a doctor, There is nothing I can do to protect her while she is in the operation but there are somethings I can do. I can get her to the best Children’s Hospital in the area and I can ask the Universe and my Gods to protect her. The hospital part is taken care of and today I was able to get the protection taken care of. We laughed, we loved on Butterfly and Monkey helped cast the circle again. Over all I’m happy. Detailically (is that a word?) I could be happier but I’m not totally disappointed either. My girl is protected as best as I can do and really, that is all that matters.
On a side note, I need a yard. Having a space to do outside ritual will make these things go much smoother. Requirement for moving: must have a good yard space!
Blessed Be! )O(
