JOYFUL NEWS

Beloved,

I have not spoken about the geese or lake much this summer.  We, the Lakeland Beach Club finally decided to put rope across the whole beach even under the dock to the other side to see if it is true that the geese see it as a barrier and won’t cross it. It worked.  All that remains is to have every one remember to reclip the rope across the sandy part when they leave. Yesterday, I noticed that the neighbors did not remember to reclip the rope.  Since I just cannot run down to the beach all the time, I waited, hoping another club member would come down and see that it was down.  All of a sudden there were 28 geese starting to get on the beach.  Soooo, I took off ( I laugh because my timing in rushing is liken to someone walking) and started clapping my hands and yelling GO.  They stood there waiting to see if I was seriously going to walk to them and then realized that I was not kidding, so they started honking and flying everywhere. They, the geese, remembered my voice so that made it easier.

Then they just moved about 2 houses down and waited for me to go back in the house.  I did but I got dressed for kayaking and went back but they still waited.  They know me and know my patterns but I surprised them.  Instead of kayaking to the left as usual, I went to the right and went right up to them with my kayak.  Again, they honked and flew and this time went down to the opposite end of the lake.  They had been waiting for me to go that way and they would have tried to get back on the beach, except I had reclipped the rope so it was all in vain anyway.  I got a good laugh at that.

It feels so GOOD to open the house up to the fresh air.  In fact, as I was sitting here talking to you, I felt this beautiful breeze come in and go across the tops of my legs.  What ecstasy that was.  It is amazing what we miss but we don’t realize it’s gone until it comes back again. In my kayaking I came across 15 regular ducks which is so good to see.  Now that the geese cannot monopolize our beach, we have seen more of the smaller ducks.  They do not see the rope as a barrier. I don’t know why, but this year I have been able to view so many baby birds coming to the feeders.  The Baltimore Orioles even stayed past July 4 and I still have a young one that comes to my feeder occasionally. This was my first year of seeing the new Orioles as they usually leave around the 4th because of all the noise.  The catbirds are still eating the grape jelly so I have been refilling those feeders.  There is a lot of noise at the feeders right now as the young birds are being taught where the food is and how to get it.  Of Course, with the windows open, I get an earful and it sounds so joyful.

Are you happy that the challenges of July are now giving way to you living freely from your heart?  Even if you understand the ways of the stars, moon, sun or planets (which I don’t) you are not exempt from their energies. Read what happened to Kari Samuels.

Do you know someone who is touched by Parkinson’s disease? This sounds so simple but life was designed to be simple, it is us humans who complicate things unwittingly.

THE UNDERSTATED AFFECTION OF FATHERS

Beloved,

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers and those who assume that role!

As a woman, I cannot fully understand fatherhood but I know it when I see it, or so I thought.  I finally realize that that when I saw affection between father and son, that it was the perfect expression of fatherly love. This article will bring new light to this subject and I hope you can let the light bulbs of recognition go off.

Today is a day that celebrates not only dads but families of which they are an integral part.  Here is an article from a mom who has allowed 2 men to adopt her son.

http://www.spiritofchange.org/Spring-2018/What-I-Want-For-My-Son-And-The-Daddies-Who-Adopted-Him/

Speaking of dads and their roles in all of our lives, I had quite an eye opener with the Canadian Geese.  I have been watching them on my lake for 20 years or more but I never “noticed” what I saw the other day.  The swimming area is cordoned off by buoys and it makes a safe place for the children away from boats.  This particular morning, I happened to notice a lot of activity in this safe area.  There are 15 new baby geese and 6 new parents.  I can’t tell the male from the female but I know there are always 6 adults with the three families of geese.  When the geese are babies, the parents are wary of any other adults but as they grow, the families start to come together like in a community.

This particular morning, I noticed so many more adults with the babies and the adults kept taking turns in putting their head and neck down into the water and aiming themselves as a straight body across the water, then the wings flap a lot and fast.  Then I noticed the young ones imitating the adults and I realized that they were in basic training. They were being trained in offense and defense tactics.  ALL the adults were participating including those that were not the parents.  They were acting as a well-oiled community.  It made me realize that we humans don’t belong to communities anymore and I felt so sad.  Growing up in a small town, that was what I knew and now I am acutely aware that my grandchildren do not have that security.  Let’s bring back the communities. Families are so very important and every member is very important.

This is graduation time all over our country.  A very special message came from this young man. He had a brother who was his father figure.  Hooray for the men who  stand up  when needed.

Could you do this?  I can’t even bring the Rubik cubes to fruition let alone while juggling. Notice the father or father figure at the end of this effort.

Here is another story of an adoptive adult.  It made me smile. Check this STORY out and see if you smile also.

SURPRISES FROM YULETIDE

Beloved,

This has been a season of changes for me.  I tried to get one last jaunt in my kayak but the wind and water did not cooperate but I am fortunate that I can see the water from inside my home. I even rearranged my living room (again) so I can see the lake while I am sitting watching TV (as long as the night has not rolled in yet). My sofa was just too tall for me to sit and still be able to see over the back  to see my favorite reason for still being in this cold weather.

I have been in bird shock for three months as my favorite bird, the golden finch, disappeared from my feeders. Imagine feeling abandoned by wild birds. I asked many people and have called the Bird Store several times and I get the same reason.  There is so much natural food for them like berries and nuts that they are not coming to the feeders. In my 21 years here, this had never happened before. I finally gave up my search for them after all this time and a few have come back occasionally.  I surprised myself that I was so depressed because I could not see my favorite birds and I missed their molting back to the duller colors of the females. Yet…I have many other different birds like the Tufted Titmouse, White Breasted Nuthatch and Black Capped Chickadee.  I am human and do not like change but I am accepting the change (do I have a choice?)

This year is also the year of the Canadian Geese.  I awoke one morning and when I looked out; I saw an armada of around 200 geese in front of the beach.  They were not pooping on the beach though; they kept putting their butts in the air as they were pecking at grass under the water.  My local geese were there but the bulk of the geese were migrating south so they were stocking up on food under the water. One morning I was up early enough to see them all fly in formation to the lake and then watched as they parted in groups to different parts of the lake to feed near shore. The migrant ducks were here for three weeks but they have since left because of the cold, I think. I really am fortunate and have no reason to be disappointed in anything yet I do miss the antics of the golden finch. They gave me a reason to always be looking out the windows.

Do you have a loved one who only likes practical gifts?  This article gave me so much info on things that I did not know existed.  Even if I am not aware of how to use them, someone younger in my family will know.  Imagine their surprise to get one of these items and the knowledge that I will also receive.  Who knows, maybe I will get  one  of these for me.

We are in the midst of a lot of preparation for Christmas.  One preparation that you may not be aware of is the energy you can use in preparation for the Winter Solstice.  I was not aware of just what an opportunity we have at this time.  Do you remember 12-12?  Well, Archangel Gabriel is giving advice on how to use this powerful time to your best benefit. I know this is adding another thing for you to do but it can be as small as 2 minutes a day and you will be rewarded greatly. Let’s bring in the LIGHT.

Do you know someone with dyslexia?  A font has been created just for them to make it much easier for them to understand what they are reading.  Isn’t it great that we live in a time of such great inventions? Pass the  word along.

Here is a perfect example of how tragedy brought out compassion and love in 12th graders.  The children are not aware yet of the greatest lesson they ever learned from their beloved teacher. This is the true  meaning  of Christmas.

Ok, Ok, I am going down memory lane.  Isn’t that what Christmas is all about?  Do you remember your Christmases as a child?  We thought it was agonizing to wait soooo long for it to get here but we certainly did a lot of smiling.
