Roses and Rose Quartz

Dear friends,

I hope everyone had a magical Mother's Day.  

I have both a mother and a stepmother, and am very blessed with kind maternal people in my life.

I choose to also celebrate women in general on this day, including those that do not have biological children.

Women are nurturers, and caregivers; and though I do not have children yet I feel that I am motherly in spirit.

Aunts, wives, girlfriends, nurses, doctors, artists, teachers, and mothers of fur children are all nurturing, motherly women.

I received roses from my love this past weekend, a blessing and kind gesture.

Spring is a fertile time, a time to celebrate life, rebirth, regeneration.  I've hung butterflies around my bedroom in honour of life, and let's be honest butterflies are just lovely.

Thoroughly enjoying this magical candle.  It smells of cedar trees, fresh pears and sunflowers!

I've been collecting MASSIVE crystal specimens and thought I would share some of my collection.  Here is citrine:

Rose quartz:

And a beautiful piece of amethyst on a wooden base, it's larger than my head!  I believe this one should be called the King of the Crystals.

Love and blessings,

Your crystals are beautiful. The amethyst is amazing. The roses are lovely as well. You know its funny that you mentioned spring. Just the other day I deep cleaned my house top to bottom and could help but think it was like spring cleaning despite the fact that summer is literally at the door.

Oooo! Those are beautiful, huge, magical, crystals. I purchased some healing crystals from a gal in Arizona. One was shaped like a heart...I'll have to take a photo of them and share them on my blog.
