Celebrate!!

Jamie's prompt for this weeks Wishcasting - what do you wish to Celebrate?

I've been busy this last week, participating as one of an ASL team 'signing' the Community Choir Christmas Cantata, 'Festival of Light.' Several of the songs include the sign for 'celebrate' & 'rejoice' - it is a jubilant, light filled offering! My 'goddess' niggles don't even get tripped, which surprises me at times. I've been told by SEVERAL folks that they enjoy my signing more than the students (who are Seniors in an ASL program, while I had one term of ASL 31 years ago!! But a dance background, so can 'do' choreography) .... 'your aura shows through when you sign'

I celebrate having eyes to see & ears to hear, to enjoy signing, but not 'need' it!

I celebrate this journey to the darkest night, & Light's return.

I celebrate being a grammie to a LOVELY little guy, & his big sisters & cousins, & the blessings of spending so much time with my grandson Zander (almost 7 months old) ...

I celebrate having 'food, shelter, & warmth' during this season of cold. Last night, a neighbor's home burned (chimney fire) THEY are all safe - but what a sad time to be faced with decisions about the home, about where to be ... (blessings on them, may they also be assured of food, shelter, warmth)

I celebrate friendships - both folks I know 'in the flesh,' & those of you I know through the airwaves! May we all be blessed this season of Light's Return!

& HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAMIE!!

What do you celebrate?

I laughed about the 'Goddess niggles' getting tripped. This is the one time it doesn't bother me either! I would so love to see you signing! I bet it is absolutely beautiful! As you, dear Dia of the Vale wish for yourself, so I wholeheartedly wish for you. Bless!

I'm almost afraid to ask what "Goddess niggles" are because I had to re-read it a few times before I read what it really said.
But a beautiful post. As you wish for yourself, so I also wish for you!

Dia said...

Thank you, all!!
Tee hee - fun, isn't it, Dionne?
Cindi, the 'goddess niggles' get me when there's too much 'father-God' verbage - I LOVE my daddy (on the other side for 19 years now!!) but also LOVE mother Goddess - & see 'the great initiative force' as beyond gender ...

I relate to Julian of Norwich "All shall be well again, all manner of being shall be well ..."
Here's the cantata website - there are a couple of 'stills' with me - the arms crossed picture is 'Love' & the arm to the side, 'God' (hand descends from above, palm facing left :)

Thanks all - loving your posts as well!!
