The Drunken Housewife

Okay, all in fun here! I was having a blue evening and a good friend recommended a stiff drink. I confessed to having no alcohol except homemade vanilla in the house. Wondered if it would taste good in milk, and then the rest is in the recipe . . .

1small shot of homemade bourbon vanilla
1/2 cup whole milk
1 heavy tbsp of maple syrup
Stir, add ice and enjoy your sneaky treat.

Anger

I am really really proud that after years of practice I am capable of not engaging with someone who infuriates me. I do not have to respond. I will, however, spend the day processing my anger. And giving myself the space to to that. Some people must exist only to create struggles that the rest of us may strengthen from. I offer up this prayer- may I feel compassion for the prison you have created for yourself. May all that know you strengthen from the turmoil that you spread. May the deeds and seeds of our lives spread further then the pain and poison in yours. May we all, including you, have peace. May this day be the start. May this day be the start. May this day be the start of something wholesome and new.
With this prayer my heart is opened. I can see the pain you must feel. And I can let myself heal.

Song for Generosity

I have my place, a wondrous place, for only I am me.
What I have, where I am: is the perfect place to be.
There is a special magic, there is a special key- for when my heart is generous, the world belongs to me.

Verse for Friendly Play

Gentle feet and gentle hands: that's the way to play.
With respect for my friends: that we may share our day

Song for frustration

Hand over my heart,
I whisper what I need,
So on these words,
My mind and soul shall feed.
