Stocking up...

I am stocking up...
Starting now, I am stocking up on luck, hope, strength, wisdom, and courage

A little over a month ago my Great Aunt Helen 
came to see me at work, she had a gift for me 
One that she had purchased in early January on her trip to Florida
she had held onto it waiting for the right time to give it to me 
after I was pregnant she said she still wanted me to have it
It is the gift of Kokopelli
& the story of him is adorable 
I am wearing this adorable charm daily in hopes 
that he will be my fertile luck :)
His image inscribed on a thousand rock faces
from east to the great western sea;
From Sonora's hot sun to the north glaciers bases,
proclaiming this loved tutelary.
Though powers possessed and methods employed
are often in open dispute;
One thing is agreed, the people did love
to hear Kokopelli's sweet flute.
This stick figure man, with a hump on his back
seemed always to cast a good feeling;
His magic perhaps, taken out of his pack
would comfort the sick and do healing.
Whatever his talents, they surely were grand,
a fact no one cares to refute,
As people would come from afar in the land,
to hear Kokopelli's sweet flute.
Kokopelli play for me,
So my heart may sing,
Magic flute of mystery,
Fruitful dreams you bring.
Song of Aztlan,
Fertile Fire,
Canyons of my mind,
Sacred union,
Heart to heart,
Speaks of the Divine.

Today, I watched on of my favorite movies
 Practical Magic
I ♥ the quote...
 "Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.”
 So tonight,
I planted Lavender
Planting Lavender for Luck
Keeping hope in my heart always 
The Strength to keep going
Having the wisdom to know which way to continue to go
The Courage to keep going


Wishing everyone a lovely weekend! 
I would like to say 
to my dear friend
