My almost silent Mini Retreat was wonderful!

Sunday, May 13, 2012

My Dear Mom has passed so i have no Mom to be with and have no Children .i wasnt too excited on being with some one elses mom so.. i decided to go have a Little Retreat to get away and just honor my Mom in my own way! So .. as usual i headed to the woods It was the most Beautiful day! I decided to take my lunch with me iced tea with Lemon Greek yogurt with fresh Black berries and a banana for my picnic! i went way back to the opening up at the Back of the 78 acres! Walked thru Huge pines up the hill thru the hard woods!It is a good place to have my walking Meditation and to relax when i finally got back there! Lots of incline! The Hen turkeys came along having a bad day moment and they was fighting like nothing ive seen! Maybe now theyre fighting over the toms that follow them around all the time! last week they wanted nothing to do with them! Im thinking before ya know it the Hens will be Moms with Ten or Twelve little ones running behind her! The Deer are not around! Im thinking some of the does are ready or have had a fawn or two and one day theyll all be brought in for me to see! I thought of my Mom who was an amazing MOM and loved me even when i was not too lovable and i was sending my thoughts to her and know she would love this place and hopes she knows how much i loved her! Im hoping my message got to her! So it was an amazing Day! I loved the peaceful time in Nature even tho the Hens were having a fit and feel so blessed to be living my Dream of living here! Even tho i didnt think id be alone i am and im doing ok! This Life wouldnt be for every one but i love my life in the woods with my wild furry and feathered friends! Im looking forward to them bringing their little ones to my yard ! Im kinda like an OLD Mother hen to them! Im feeling really good after a long walk now i think ill go rest on the covered porch and see whats happening out there! I just thought id share my Retreat day ! Blessings to all !This always seems to help me when i blog a bout my Little world in the wilds of N. Michigan, BONNIE Blessings and Joy! emoticon emoticon

    What a nice Mother's Day you made for yourself. I hope you smiled as you reminisced back on the good times you and your mother had together. I, too, was up in the mountains for my day. I love it. I didn't see any turkeys but the turkey hunters were perched around scouting their habits so I know they're around somewhere. I'm thinking they're in hiding because it's turkey hunting season here. I did see 2 deer and an eagle though.

    Sounds like a great day. I too, have no children and my mom passed away over ten years ago, so I can relate to how you feel. A day surrounded by Nature sounds like the perfect way to spend Mother's Day. I feel closer to my mom when I'm in the woods taking a walk. We used to walk in the woods behind our house when I was growing up. I do miss her and our walks. But I know she's happy and in a better place and with me still. However, I do feel a void in my life on Mother's Day. So I spent the day with my cousin (whose mom was like a 2nd mom to me--she also passed away) and with a friend (who is estranged from his mom) and my nephew (whose mom doesnt appreciate him as much as she should). We just chilled out at my house and had some pasta salad and some orange smoothies and watched a basketball game and enjoyed each others company. It was a very pleasant day. I also got called in to work @ 4p, so I got to enjoy time with the residents where I work. I made them grilled buffalo burgers for dinner and they loved it. Thanks for sharing your day. Your are truly blessed to have such beauty and wonder in your back yard. Take care friend. (((hugs)))

    Sweet! I love my walks in the woods and sweet memories of Mom and Mamamarge, both gone but not forgotten.
