Today is a good day. It snowed lastnight. Not too much, a couple of inches. My kids are on Christmas Vacation. We are home together this week. I am glad. They are growing so quickly. It’s nice to have now to share.
Today’s card is 10, Happy Family from the Native American Tarot by Magda and J.A. Gonzalez. The image on the card depicts the Native American family life. The mother is teaching the young child, while the father entertains the baby.
My life has been a non-stop rush of Christmas and deliveries. Things are coming together nicely. It seems like years of hard work are now manifesting abundance. Not that they did not before. It’s just easier now. It’s hard when kids are young to maintain balance.
The card depicts the true role of the young mother. Teaching while working. It’s tough being mom’d all the time and still having to get shit done.
As children grow they become more independent. The challenges of their younger years are offset by their bursting into beautiful considerate young people with brilliant ideas and eyes.
It’s nice now that my kids are in elementary school, I am able to take more regular and more sizable chunks of time for my own personal pursuits, like this blog. All while my children pursue their own interests. Happiness all around!
