Today's Draw...etc.

Today I drew the 5 of Cups

Today is Thursday, and yesterday was my bi-monthly luncheon with my dear old friends. The 5 of Cups stands in stark contrast to the 3 that I got last week. Fives tend to engender uneasy feelings, sometimes arguments and just general emotional tension Hmmm.. And the 3 cups have been spilled, yet 2 still remain upright. We can presume they are not empty, though even empty they symbolize potential. This card always seems to be saying, "Don't cry over spilled milk"... move on there is still Hope.

Since I didn't draw the card until today it is reflecting today's energy ... and I am way tired, totally spent and in pain unless I'm sitting or lying down. I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow. We were together for seven hours, might be too long for me to be sitting in other people's chairs. And, it was chilly. I just didn't have as much fun as I did last week. I hope I remember to draw a card each week after our get togethers so I can watch the way this part of our journey together unfolds.

We did get around to discussing our croning ceremony which we are planning for some time in the early fall. Nikki has done quite a bit of work on her peacepole and it's totally awesome. Ingrid has chosen her clothes for the croning. None of us are like totally pagan so we're just making this thing up as we go along, should be interesting. Will be amazing if we actually pull it off. But we are a bunch of game old broads so it might happen.

And we were all Camp Fire Girls.

I am grateful to have my sisters close again.

I am grateful for good food, especially when someone else cooks it.

I appreciate the rain today.

I am grateful for Joe who did the dishes today.
