I have had our AT on my mind lately. We are so fortunate to have her. She is open-minded and willing to try different approaches. Her work in trauma is really amazing and she is always right-on the mark for what is going on with J. She is still willing to work with Janice & Barbara if it's needed and always builds me up and gives me great ideas. She always honors my ideas and never makes me feel like an idiot (I realize there are days that I am one ;-)). When she saw how much difference Reiki made with J she quickly made the decision that she would be attuned for Reiki as well and is using it in her practice with much success. How cool is that?!?! Most people would have just poo-pooed the whole idea but then again not everyone is as open-minded as Kristy.
My dear, friend Chris (who attuned both Kristy & I to Reiki) came over Monday evening to give J some crystals and a dream catcher. It worked out that Chris was able to give me a Reiki treatment with J watching so that she could see what is going on since most of the time her eyes are shut. Then Chris & I did Reiki on J together. It was really cool. Chris said that she could tell that some of her chakras are not right because of the sexual abuse but that her heart chakra was very strong. Chris told J that her spirit was a beautiful pink rose and that someday that pink rose would be where everyone could see it as she continues to get better. Something about that statement was very profound for me (it was for J too) and moved me to tears. Thank you Chris for all you do for us. I am so grateful to have you in my life.
Helping another RAD mom get started on the k12.com program to homeschool her radishes. Very exciting although I have no idea where I'm going to fit this in but tickled she's going this route since it's turned out to really help J in so many areas. How I wish that I could be a SAHM.
Lunch was such a nice treat today. I got to see my friend Mary (Mountain Mary) which always just makes my day! I'm expecting a 30 lb box of books from my other Mary (Texas Mary) and can't wait for them to get here. Monday I ordered the whole Little House collection (Laura Ingalls Wilder). As a child these were my favorite books so I'm really excited to start this journey with J. It should be a trip down memory lane for me.
G is somewhere in WV having a grand ole time on a motorcycle trip. I'm trying not to worry. Part of me pines for the Harley days. Then I hear his voice at the end of the day and he is soooo dragging and I remember that tired feeling and the sore butt feeling and the can't walk feeling and the next morning trying to get my leg over the motorcycle feeling and then I don't feel so bad anymore. I get to sleep in my comfy bed and walk like a lady instead of a bow-legged cowboy. :-)
This afternoon my darling little Mattison will be back. How unfortunate for her....but when you throw dirt in your Awesome Mom's face (on purpose) twice bad consequences will occur. Lucky me though....my house will be spotless soon.
