Greetings and Brightest Blessings Sisters!
As I sit here completing the April offering newsletter, rain is pouring down from the sky with intermittent hail... yes, hail!
There's a fire burning and chicken stock simmering on the woodstove and snow on the ground just 15 minutes up the hill.  Quite a different picture from the last newsletter. 
In these moments I become conscious of how fast things can change.  Of how what "is" one moment, becomes what "was" the next.  It reminds me of how important feeling grateful is for moments of experience, knowing how fleeting they can be.
This month's Goddess Circle is focused on just that.  Gratitude.  Honoring the beauty of what "is" before it transitions into what "was".  Feeling the blessings of all that life presents, whether sunny one day or rainy the next.
Come join us this month sisters, as we give praise to all that "is" in our lives and spend time in heart centered gratitude.
