It's the kind of day where you think of the coming Winter; there's a cold chill in the air, and a sharp bite to the wind. The sun is still shining though, as though it's determined to hang on for just as long as it can; determined to remind you it will always be there, giving our planet life, and doing its best to keep us warm.
It's days like these when thoughts of family and friends begin to be foremost in many people's minds; the holidays are here, and the holiday time always makes people think of their loved ones; those who are still with us, and those who are not. This Samhain I will be taking the time to pause between the fun activities I'm planning to do to celebrate. I'll be pausing to think about those people; especially those we have lost. Not just the people though... The pets too!
In the meantime... I know some people who aren't doing too well right now - healthwise or otherwise - who could use those extra thoughts, so I'm writing this to send positive thoughts out there for them; I'll be doing it personally too, but maybe my writing this will strengthen the energies? There is, after all, power in the written word; that's why you should always be careful what you put out there for others to read. That's what I believe, anyway.
So, I'm sending out positive thoughts to those who need them; whether you need them because life is tough right now, need them because you're unwell, or whatever. Just know that someone in the world is thinking of you, and hoping things get better for you!
