No Imbolc/Lammas Issue of Life in The Craft Magazine and Other Things Explained

There will be no Imbolc/Lammas issue of Life in The Craft magazine this turning of the Wheel of the Year as it would contain my chaotic energy. Plus, I just have not felt up to being able to even edit last year’s issue to send out.

You may have missed the posts explaining what has been going on in my life since January 1, 2023 so let me give you the highlights.

January 3rd, my third oldest grandson left for active duty in the USA Army. His first two weeks in Basic Combat Training were really rough and I was helping my daughter, his mom adjust to her younger son being unreachable most of the time besides me trying to get use to it. I am happy to say that as of the end of last week he, my daughter, and myself have almost adjusted to a new normal.

January 7th, we welcomed my 10th grandchild into the family. An hour after his birth he had to be put on oxygen and have a feeding tube inserted. Here I was helping my middle son and his wife cope with having a baby in the NICU. I was very worried for my grandson as well. I am happy to say he came home to meet his big brother on January 13, 2023.

January 13rd My daughter whose son just enter the Army earlier in the month had one of her and her fiancée cats get sick overnight. The vet ran tests and found he had a lymph node type cancer. He came home from the animal hospital only to enter eternal sleep on January 23rd.

January 18th The latest thing to upset the family was my youngest son’s constant canine companion of 11 years hurt his leg get up from under the kitchen table. The leg appeared only to be sprained so he was treating him for this at home. By January 27 his leg was swollen with sores on it. Into the vet we go to find out Kage had a very sever break in his femur to the point even if he had taken him to the vet the day it happened it would have cost thousands of dollars to try to have it fixed. Kage had devolved an septic infection, an infect that is in the bloodstream. My son made the hardest decision of his life to have his beloved companion put into eternal rest. I was very close to Kage also and had known him just as long as my son had. I also would dog sit if my son went away for a couple of days. This death was so totally unexpected that I am still having a hard time dealing with my feelings over it. Like crying as I type this.

All of this extra stress and silly weather put into the worse fibromyalgia I have ever experienced and am still trying to get it to calm down. It also, brought me nightmares, lower immunity leading to a cold I am trying to get rid of. I have had super highs, my grandson coming home very healthy, to deep lows, Kage’s death and every emotion in between. This is why I took days off here and there through January from all things connected to WoTC. I literally forced myself to start working again this last Sunday. I also contribute my wanting to honor Lady Abyss’ memory by reposting some of her things this week as a way to live up to me telling her I would carry on the Goddess’ work on this website when I took over in May of 2019. I will do what I can daily or let you know why I am not posting on any given day.

Thank you all for your support, understanding, beautiful words in comment and emails.

  1. You have all my sympathy. You have had a terrible run of misfortune. So sorry to hear about your pet dog, Kage. Things must, and will, become better given the appropriate time. The wheel of fortune moves slowly but constantly. We go up, down, and up again. Looking after your own health is your number one priority at present. Stress is definitely the precursor of fibromyalgia and arthritis. Are you maybe, trying too hard to control impossible events? Take your time. Have faith in yourself, and best wishes in the coming days. [cid:image002.png@01D935B1.B0536840] Sent from Mail for Windows
