Acceptance

Of my daughter's conversion to Islam is one of the more difficult things in my life, one of the reasons I don't post here much anymore, one of the reasons I have to work hard to be happy. 

I am not a fan of religion, agreeing  with Karl Marx that  "religion is the opiate of the masses", and consider it to be mostly useful for control.  But, I am accepting after months of tears, arguments, and downright nasty fighting that this is the path she has chosen and I am finding acceptance.

I am grateful that spring is finally showing just a wee bit around here.
I appreciate the support of my husband and love it when he does dishes.
I am happy that my daughter feels more at peace and more connected.
I appreciate myself for letting go of this situation and moving on.

It's good to see you again, and hear the voice of your heart.

The bears are back, and up on my deck. They're hungry, of course, nosing around for chewy morsels. I haven't put out birdseed in who knows how long, and desperately miss my birds and squirrels. But, maybe the bears won't think of my home as their buffet...

I remember the bears from the time I stayed in Montana... they made a lot of messes but I never actually saw one.

is it spring there yet, it is slow in coming here... I need to get outside :)
