Penny Power

Angel in the snow at Bealtaine CottageThe important fact is that we are amazingly powerful as consumers.

Bealtaine Cottage Blessings…

The morning started bright and it was a good day for working on the land. I sat here enjoying my tea and toast, planning the work I would do in the orchard and vegetable garden…but…I got side-tracked…

...and decided to just cut back a few stems of willow.
Mistake!
I became engrossed in constructing another willow arch at the top end of the vegetable garden, near the tunnel!
Before I knew what the time was, my stomach was rumbling and Missy had arrived back from the vet…

My lovely old cat is much better today and her appetite has returned. We continue to wait for the results of whether her tumour is malignant or benign, but a 6 week steroid injection has begun to shrink it, allowing her to be much more comfortable!

I want to thank all you lovely people who are being mindful of Missy…I do believe that so much good energy sent to Missy has helped her enormously! I have tied the names of well wishers to an old fairy tree in the garden near the cottage for health and contentment to be returned to you and your beloved animals too…good energy wishes are powerful!

Bealtaine Blessings to you all!

“We have forgotten who we are, we have lost our sense of wonder and connectedness, we have degraded the earth and our fellow creatures, and we have nowhere else to go . . . “
– Earth Charter
I read this today and realised how important it is to be mindful of the real things in this world…for me, animals are one of the pillars of happiness and love. Compassion is what makes us whole.

The day that’s in it at Bealtaine Cottage today!

Love, Peace, Contentment and Empowerment to you ALL.
