Jessica Sprague's Holidays in hand

Jessica Sprague's Holidays in hand

I have joined up to a free online course called Holidays in Hand by Jessica Sprague. I am sort of copying my sister as she did this last year, but I loved her album so much I thought that I would give it a go this year, although im not so sure I will find the time to do something everyday!!

The first assignment is to look at our values and goals for the holiday season, It has taken me ages but I think I have done ok!!

First things first!

My Family is not religious, We celebrate xmas as a time to come together with the people we love, and to share gifts as a token of that love. We all go to my sisters house xmas day and enjoy a nice dinner, and spending time together, this is really the only day of the year that we do this, as we all have pretty hectic lives, so its hard to find time to spend with each other. About 6 years ago I followed in my sisters footsteps and became a Pagan, I find this a much better way of life, so at xmas time I do not celebrate the birth of Christ, but celebrate Yule, which is a celebration of the Sun God returning. We still decorate the tree and put flashy lights up!!

My goals for Yule this year are:

  1. Keep it simple, don’t go overboard on the gifts, everyone already has enough junk!
  2. Choose a charity to donate money to in my sister’s name (we do this for each other instead of buying gifts!)
  3. Really try and get my Holidays in Hand album done!
  4. To offer more help to those who need it (especially my sister as she has 8 people to cook for this year!)
  5. Not to get stressed out when the children are being too noisy!
Ok so there are not loads but im sure I will think of more to add as the days go on!!!

A Mothers Prayer

I found this poem and just love it, it has hit a very personal chord with me, hope you like it.

A Mothers Prayer
I closed my eyes and prayed to the goddess today
i asked what makes a mother and i know i heard her say
"a mother has a baby, this we know is true"

But Goddess can you be a mother when your baby's not with you?
"yes you can" she replied with confidence in her voice
"i give many women babies, when they leave its not their choice

Some i send for a lifetime and others for a day
and some i send to feel your womb but theres no need to stay"

I dont understand this goddess, i want my baby here.
She took a breath and cleared her throat and then i saw a tear

I wish i could show you what your child is doing today
if you could see your child smile with the other children and say
"we go to Earth to learn our lessons of love and life and fear
my Mummy loved me oh so much i got to come straight here

I feel so lucky to have a mum who had so much love for me
i learnt my lesson very quick my mummy set me free
i miss my mummy oh so much but i visit her everyday
when she goes to sleep, on her pillow is where i lay

I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek and whisper in her ear
mummy dont be sad today, im your baby and im here"

So you see my dear sweet one your children are ok
your babies are here in my house and this is where they'll stay
they'll wait with me until your lesson is through
and on that day that you come home they'll be at the gates for you

So now you see what makes a mother
its a feeling in your heart
it's the love you have so much of right from the start

Though some on earth may not realise that you are a mother till their time is done
they'll be up here with me one day and know that you are the best one.
