No fancy bonfires just quiet reflection with Lyn and Elaina with some candles lit. I have been saving this red womyn candle for today. Of course thete is barley in my Chalice. My thoughts today are not very forward thinking. I am missing my kids that are visiting with grandparents and those that live with their dad. I want today to be full of merriment but it isn't. Stress at work is messing up the flow at home. Lyn is going through challenging moments and I have to pretend everyday to be stronger than I am.
