Solstice Blessings to one and all!
I still find it hard to believe the Wheel has made a complete turn since my life has changes for the better.
Witchlette is going to be one in a few days.
Litha, last year, I was huuuuuuuge and loving it.
Witchlette came shortly after Midsummer and her first Sabbat was Lammas. She was just two months old. Mabon came shortly after, but she was just shy of three months old. Samhain came and she participated in the cultural aspect of Halloween but not the spiritual aspect of Samhain. The same happened with Yule, we did Santa and presents and a tree but we didn’t *do* Yule, at least not from a spiritual perspective. She was just too young at that point to really partake in anything. Imbolc came and went and Ostara was much like Yule and Samhain.
When Beltane came, I felt she was old enough to perhaps start, but I was too caught up in the comings and goings of life to really do anything myself. We took a nice walk but that was about it.
And now the Wheel has landed on Litha. Hubby, Witchlette, and I took a nice walk in the woods. There was a lake near by so we got to do an Elemental Blessing with all of the physical elements present (it’s hot enough to count for fire!) The wind blew right in cue to give us a full experience. It was beautiful.
Tonight, before she goes to bed, I will be beginning the candle in her lantern.
