The Wildwood isn’t telling me its time for recuperating this week, I’m telling the Wildwood, I have to.
The first day back to school for my boys and I take ill with aches, shivers and cold. This morning, I could barely stand up, let alone take the boys to school! But with some cold and flu drugs being absorbed into my system, I fought my way through and did what all sturdy mums do: Carry on regardless!
However, when the chance arose, I did nap, despite the ill-timed interruptions from the concerned neighbour next door and soon, I’ll be heading to bed, drugged up and hopefully, to sleep properly so I can heal.
It made me think of this card, and whilst this card doesn’t have the wood burning stove going at full pelt, this little deer is doing exactly what I need to do: which is protect one self.
Sometimes, the need of the one out-weighs the needs of the many.
So with this little post, I bid you good health, hope you don’t catch the lurgy from reading my post (thankfully, I know it’s not possible!) and hope to catch up with you next week. I need to be better for Thursday for the Meetup, you see. Trying to lead a group when you’re suffering with aches and shivers, isn’t wise.
I know I’m also very late with the Ostara newsletter, so I’ve chosen to leave that behind. I’ve started drafting Beltane’s, so keep your eyes peeled on your in-boxes come May 1st and if you haven’t signed up, why on earth not? Go on, it’s free (and we all like free things) and I’ll even try to be humorous! (Yeah, I know, not my style, but still, one can try 😛 )
Be safe, until I post again with The Wildwood!
