A Simple Way to Create a Little Altar

I love creating small altars that I can place around my home, they always fill me with great joy, like this little altar that I’m using as a table scape, that captures the season in a magical way for me.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money or go all fancy, just collect items that you already have.  Let yourself be guided by your spirit and put together things that are meaningful to you, and feels good to you.

I used a serving platter and put pine cones that I’ve had for a couple of years, some of my crystals, the green branches from the flowers I bought yesterday, three tea candles, something I always have in my home, and the inspiration rock I bought for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby.

Every time I walk by it, I stop and allow it to work its magic and I say thank you, or I’ll say a little blessing.  For me this is a sacred act of self-care, a moment in which I can get lost into and receive the gifts of Spirit.

I hope I’m inspiring you to create your own magical altar and I’d love it if you share it here in the comments.

Simple Pleasures Can Fill Us With Joy

In the realm of the day to day we can find simple pleasures that fill us with great joy.

On Friday I went to my granddaughter’s school for a grandparents lunch. I sat next to my precious sweetheart who told me all about everything in the school.  Her favorite teacher who sat at our table, her best friend who was a few tables over, well she really has two best friends, and when I took a picture of the first graders singing she asked me why I’m taking a photo since she’s not in it LOL. And when I opened my napkin she showed me how to place my utensils the correct way. And I was gifted with these gorgeous roses.

A joyous memory I will hold forever in my heart.
