The Circle - Shivaya Naturals

The Circle

February 22, 2011

This will be my last post until after the wee one’s arrival, and since in the past few weeks I have not had the opportunity to visit all of your blogs the way that I normally do (and facing facts, I am a bit behind with email as well), I wanted to take just a quick moment to say thank you.

When I began this blog a few years back, I did so on the advice of a friend to share some crafty goodness, and to catalog the lives of my kiddos. Never could I have imagined that as I enter into one of the most important moments of my life, would I have the support and encouragement of so many amazing people with me who I have never actually met, but feel I know so well.

The Circle of Stones has grown over these past few years, and now as I call upon every ounce of courage and faith that I can find, I feel the strength and encouragement that you all have given me in these past 18 months. From the last loss that I sustained in October of 2009, to the present day, all of you have offered so many words of love and hope, and trust me when I tell you that I have needed and called upon them all.

Some day soon, life will return to normal and this space will be filled with sewing and knitting, spring fun and kiddos doing yoga, good food and celebration. For now, I just want to leave it in the quietness that gratitude can bring. I am grateful for all of you, and I am going to take your words, and your circle of stones with me into this experience. Even if I have not personally said it, you have all helped, and I am really lucky to have had so many prayers, thoughts and blessings for my family.

Thank you

I may be just one of those little stones, a pebble really since I've only been visiting a short while, but I am thankful for being included in your blog world. May the coming days bring you courage, love, and power! What an amazing experience you are about to embark upon…birthing is as real as it gets!!! Much love to you and your family…and the wee one as they cross over the rainbow bridge.

Good luck to you for a healthy and safe delivery. I have thought of you often as bits of my life have dovetailed bits of yours you have shared.
It is a lovely community and one that has felt especially kind to me, as well. Thank you for your lovely space here and for including me in the circle of stones last year.
Warmly, Nicola


Lucy February 27, 2011 at 9:22 pm

Hi Heather, I love the different threads to you blog, especially circle of stones and threading light. I am in awe of how much beauty and accomplishment and wonderfulness you pack into your life! And another baby on the way. Well done for stepping back, it's what I find most challenging!

I am doing a Circle of Stones week here at Dreaming Aloud to mark an International Women's Day event which is uniting women's circles. Later in the week I will be featuring your Circle of Stones here, so I hope it brings you lots of visitors. http://dreamingaloudnet.blogspot.com/2011/02/circ

Best of luck with birth and baby.
