Anyone else hitting lots of emotional highs and lows during this Pices full moon?
I am making some really deep connections that I never expected to. Lots of spontaneous overflow of powerful emotions.
I communicated with a client on a level I never have before. An awesome meeting.
A friend I haven't seen much of lately shared some sad news she's been sitting on (a recent stillbirth
) I cried all afternoon in empathy and sorrow for her and her family -- I would always have been sad for her, but this seemed like excessive emotion? Met up with her this eve, and we had a great talk. I am there for her and I think it helps her a little. It feels good just to know that.
I don't know if you remember me whining about being an overworked volunteer at my local crunchy family resource center charity last spring. I attended and helped organize some parent meetings tonight and I think we've solved that problem. My co-volunteers and I, including a couple of passionate newbies who weren't even around last spring, prepared for the meeting but spoke unrehearsed, shared our love for the center and its programs and expressed our view of what it needs to keep going. We got all kinds of support and volunteer commitment from the families who use our programs
I treasure-mapped this support happening, and I can't believe how perfectly it went
I was dreading that meeting and now I can't wait to help with another one next week.
Ran into a parent who told me all about something sweet that my ds1 did to help her little dd at the year-end party last year. That would have made my day alone! So nice to hear that my rambunctious kid is considered "a good kid" by someone and I didn't even know it. (Makes up for the sideways comments about his misbehavior I've gotten from others lately
Lots of what overwhelms me in my personal life is still there, but I feel like that fish swimming the waters of emotion going *with* the current instead of fighting it.
I'm feeling a lot of enthusiasm for the future, even though I know it won't all be easy.
redveg -- I don't think I answered the question about what is growing for me with all this rain. My lawn has never been so green, lol. My peas are good, my chard is good. I have an abundance of apples, but they actually taste watery to me, like the usual intensity of flavor is diluted. The kids are eating them, though!
Mo3 - great news about the positive direction for your mom!
Glad you're enjoying the sunshine FR, and thanks for the kind comment -- Wrangling 6 is easier when I have my nearly-teenaged dd and school-aged son along as 2 of the 6. They are a big help. The littles were good for our meeting with the homeschooling coordinator, who is used to big families, I think. We did end up leaving the playground early because it was just too crowded and dangerous. I got my exercise quotient pulling a heavy wooden wagon carrying three littles and a box of textbooks up that hill though!
