Kids and beliefs: I didn't want to raise my children with my beliefs the way my mother raised me. I wanted them to be able to choose their own beliefs when they were older. I realized several years ago that by not teaching them anything, I wasn't helping them to make a choice. I'm now raising them Pagan, but also teaching them about the beliefs other people have and why.
My family: I have a very blessed and chaotic family life. My husband and I rent a basement apartment from my parents. Almost a year ago we moved his mother in with us. Our girls gave up their room for Mammaw, and moved upstairs into one of my parents empty bedrooms. My ninety-six year old Grandma also lives upstairs. Our full house(s) can get pretty crazy at times, but I know we are all blessed to be so close to our extended family.
Update: We finally bought our own home just over a year ago. We still live close to both my parents and my mother in-law.
Earthy home: Being earth friendly takes lots of time. Time to change the way you do things and time to do things differently. I know in my heart that if we take care of the Earth and treat her well, then she will be thankful to us.
This blog will always be a work in progress, just like life is. I hope you enjoy reading what I write.
