Wow.  I just woke up from the best dream I've ever had.  It was AWESOME!  Whew! 

So, last night I stayed up late to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower.  Saw a handful of shooting stars.  One really cool one that broke apart several times like a classic firework.  Needless to say, I made a lot of wishes.  One, was to figure out my career path.

Okay, the dream:  I was in a warehouse at the very top.  It was a dictatorship.  I was in Korea.  It was very dull and boring.  I went to the Korean women and was crying and said "I just wish we could play!!"  That seemed to open up a doorway out.  We all started funneling through these doors and down down into the maze we went.  Now it was like we were in a junk store.  Lots and lots of junk everywhere.  I started finding jewels!  In the form of awesome arts & crafts and in the form of crafting books.  I started collecting the crafting books and putting them into my backpack.  I was on a roll.  I was getting out of all the junk.  I was going through challenging obstacle courses, over junk, over challenging people.  At one point, all I had to hang onto were wires!  I was literally hanging onto the wires even though they were going to shock me!  I kept going.  I was getting out of there!  At one point, I picked out a hat.  It had to have the Lion of Judah on it.  I put it on, it was a bit small.  I had to squeeze through a small opening.  I watched the guy before me go in and he said, "Watch, I'm gonna lose my hat.  It's gonna 'BLOW MY MIND.'  LOL!!!  I lost the hat.  As I got to the end of the maze, I wanted to get out of there with my backpack full of amazing craft books without paying for them, a guy handed me two pizza dough bags, saying "I'm not going to pay for these, THEY"VE BEEN FROZEN!"  He handed them to me so I could get out.  I got out with the bags of dough and new shoes.  I started running.  Man could I run.  I loved running!  I was so fast!  I took off up a huge hill, I look over and there is an amazing children's education store full of awesome stuff.  I didn't stop there.  I KNEW what I had to do now.  I was sprinting up the hill to my family, and I was loving it.  I was like a marathon runner!  I found my wonderful husband and my two kids.  I was so happy.  I looked up into the night sky and saw the biggest, brightest shooting star.  Awe.  Some.  <3

{This describes my last few years of life perfectly.  And I wanted a message from Spirit, telling me about my career path.  This is it!!}

...Do we ever really get it done?  No.  Nothing ever really gets done... Be the doing.  Ahhh.  Juggling two toddler boys, a home, a marriage, a farm and a new business is exhilarating... and exhausting!  How do you cope with stress?   It seems when all is melting down around me, the boys are fighting and making huge messes... right after I just cleaned that up, the dishes are piled up to the ceiling... aaagain... laundry is spewing out from it's laundry hole... I haven't showered and aaaaarrrgh!!  When in my day am I going to just relax and when do I craft and when do I do what it is that I really WANT to do??  whew.

I like to sit back with a nice cuppa tea and breathe, read a book.  Blog about it..  now that  have this new  blog.  =D  Then I go take a nice shower.  And then... I make some more tea, have a fresh baked brownie (frostedddd!) and then... I go trace out some squares for a rag quilt I'm making for the boys... because that is what is really important... not laundry, not dishes and not my hair do.. It's that special feeling I get when I'm making something for someone I love.   Or even just that special feeling I feel when I am creating.  Ahhh.  That's what does it.   CREATION!  Each little moment is a gift from God/Goddess; That's why it's called the "Present."  Deep breaths everyone.  Namaste.
