It has been cold and very, very gray in the Pacific Northwest lately.  I am looking forward to a weekend with the girls and planning some adventures.  I think we will use our two activity passes and head to the Seattle Art Museum and the Pacific Science Center.  Lunch at Pike’s Place Market will make a great stop in between.  Stop back in on Monday to hear about what we saw.

Drop us a line today and let me know what’s in your weekend plans.

Do You Believe in Magic? November 7, 2008

I have felt a wonderful rush this past week as I’ve started decluttering my heart and mind on my Soul Coaching journey.  Today’s affirmation resounds:  I am safe and centered no matter where I am.  The ups and downs, twists and turns of the past year have wrought havoc on my inner self.  Yet, as I really become aware of the place that I’m in, I see that the chaos was not from within me.  Everything in my heart, everything in my home has actually been safe.    The havoc came from the outside and I allowed it to enter.  Over the past 6 days, I have focused on releasing the clutter that came with the chaos.  I absolutely feel lighter.  I feel more solid on my foundation.  I am ready for all the magic…all the possibility….that can come in and fill up those spaces that chaos once filled. 

There are still troubling events, hurdles to overcome, emotions to work through.  But the fear is gone, the lack of confidence is subsiding.  I am finding my authentic self again.  This is exactly what I had hoped that this process would bring.

I am happy to be able to end the week at the BeachHouse on Whidbey Island.  It is a place of peace and serentity.  We always see amazing creation when we are there….sea lions, eagles, mountains, water.  It is definitely my retreat, my safe place.  This weekend it will just be the girls and I.  I can’t wait for just some mom and daughter time!  It has been a busy and emotional week and the three of us are much in need of a quiet weekend of stormy beach walks, reading by the fire, walking through the cute seaside town of Langley and talking into the night.  I love knowing that the environment I create for me, is their environment as well and we are safe and centered and loved by a God that watches over us.

This will be the view from our window this weekend…..sunsetatwhidbey1 Can you feel the magic?

Weekend Word – All the Cool Kids are Doing it! October 3, 2008

I was feeling like I needed to catch up to the rest of the gang in the blogosphere and have a weekly feature.  Come on Daughter….what happened to your weekly feature?

I grew up with a mother that never let her 4 kids, or the fact that she was a Special Ed teacher, influence her vocabulary.  We were raised using cool words like…..Oh, don’t ask me now that was a long time ago! 

In her honor, I will post the weekend word.  Starting with:

slugabed \SLUHG-uh-bed\, noun:
One who stays in bed until a late hour; a sluggard

With any luck, this will define the state of my affairs this weekend!  I needs me to catch up on my shut eye!

Happy Friday!
