I invite you to slow down and take a deep breath.. Today's flower is Lavender
Lavender considered both calming and curative.. adding it in sachet's to a bath gives one a spa-like experience!
Bluish-purple blooms enrich my garden and with the brush of my hand the spikey flowers release its heavenly scent! Beloved by bees and butterflies and me but did you know it's shunned by *deer and *rabbits
Harvesting flowering stems encourages vigorous growth and continued blooms. Late in the morning after the dew has dried I bundle up stems and hang upside down.
The heady fragrance invites me to take in a deep breath...ahhh! After a week or so I'm ready to fill up lavender sachets to tuck into my drawers and closets.. did you know it's a natural moth repellent

My playful little Babie with her gentle purrs.. reverts back to a predator when let loose in my peaceful garden... she brings me peace. :: "To raise your energy when you are in harmony.. you become an instrument or a channel of peace."

After hearing the grave diagnosis that I have a fist size mass in my abdomen and that I have lymphoma I reached out to you in a postHERE.
I asked that you place me on your prayer list because I believe in the Power of Prayer! You responded with an outpouring of compassionate action with encouraging words, prayers, healing energies, emails, phone calls, lit candles.. all directed my way. With your strong support I was able to stand tall deflecting the fear and overwhelming anxiety. With your prayers I have been able to bravely look fear in the face and NOT give it energy allowing my body mind and spirit to be less reactive to the upsetting diagnosis. I am as well my family, deeply touched and grateful to the extraordinary bloggers, friends, strangers, people who I've never met.. who cared enough to send a healing light my way! YOU have proved beyond measure, the beauty of human compassion that we have for one another within this blogging community! Together we've proved that Prayers and having Faith are powerful! Miracles can happen!
Happy Feet and Good news!
I recieved my recent catscan report and the mass which showed up in a previous ultra-sound is ***NO LONGER THERE!***
Apparently the angle in which the ultra-sound was taken the catscan identified it as only being*a shadow! There was never a mass! The ultra-sound report was misread! There is still concern for my enlarged spleen.. 4 x's it's normal size so I had a bone marrow biopsy done to confirm or rule out lymphoma. I'm having a few more tests taken but feel so relieved and filled with HOPE! I sure feel a huge weight lifted off me! Thank you all for holding out your hands to me.. I feel so blessed. I ask that you continue praying for me. :: I am sharing my journey with you to give insight, HOPE and encouragement to anyone who is experiencing illness or a desperate situation and needs inspiration, healing and a feeling of wholeness. With a loving heart I embrace each one of you! hugs naturegirl xo ~~ "HOPE is faith holding out its hand in the dark" George Iles
