Wishcasting Wednesday: What do I want to share?
Happy Birthday Bean!



Each week when Jamie Ridler presents her Wishcasting prompt, I pause and ponder a bit before posting; sometimes I need an hour, sometimes a whole day. 

Not today.  Today the words breezed in without hesitation.



What do you wish to share?


Today is the birthday of my grandson, the Bean.  He is two-years-old.  

The Bean is unquestionably one of the greatest gifts in my life and my Master Teacher.  In the two years that my life has been graced with his presence, he has taught me to exercise patience, gentleness, unconditional love and the joy of being in the moment.   He has taught me to take better care of myself so that we will have many many years together. 

My wish today is that I may share with my grandson the gifts that I have been given, enriching his life as he has enriched mine.

I wish to share my love of essential oils and the healing therapies that come from Mother Nature.

I wish to share my sense of humor and love of laughter so that he may find his own funny bone and retain his inner monkey. 

I wish to share the natural world by taking him on trips to the woods with his Pap and I where he can learn to appreciate its peace and beauty.


 I wish to share my creativity and give him a place where he can safely explore his own inner artist.

I wish to share my cockeyed optimism and enthusiasm for life so that he may learn to see that there is something good in every situation, no matter how painful. 

 I wish to share my life's story as well as that of his Nonno (my ex), his Pap (my husband) and his father (my son) so that he may embrace a sense of history within his own identity.


Happy Birthday my precious Bean. 
I love you and wish to share with you
all that I have,
all that I know,
and all that I am.

I hear how much he has brought to your life...but what brings a tear to me when I read this is the absolute faith that he has no idea how much you will bring to his. And for both of you I wish years of this grand discovery.

Happy Birthday, Bean...from one of your Nana's friends!

Hello fellow muse!

Sweet. Good essay material here if you choose to write one. How lucky you are to have each other. Never really got to know my grandparents. Taking him into the woods to show its peace and beauty. Double wonderful!

May you be able to share for a very long time, your gifts with your grandson and his with the Fragrant Muse.
