Feeling 'little'


Many many moons ago, when I was a young girl, my mother used the most wonderful expression to help me articulate those moments when I felt insecure, frustrated with my limitations, or just plain in a funk.

"Are you feeling little," she would ask.

Yes. That captured it perfectly. Because inside my tiny frame was a spirit that usually felt big and sunny and full and sure of things. And then there were times when my pilot light just seemed to dial down to a flicker.

'Tis such an evening. Missing my mom. And feeling little.

Hopefully, not for long.

What do you do when you're "feeling little"?

Wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'


Snow 
if you like it

Sun
if you need it

Prosperity
if you want it

Moisture
for our fields

Shelter
if you lack it

Sustenance
in good measure

Forgiveness
as you need it

Love
to help you breathe

Breath
to move the love

Mirth
to float your soul

Rest
in all its forms

Astonishment
to awaken you

 and

Mystery
to keep you searching



These are my 2013 wishes for you,
my friends and loved ones.


Oh, and dogs
if you so desire-as do I
