Today has been a very tough day indeed. At first I didn't feel like blogging at all but after my daughters both had drawn a card from the Wildwood Tarot I knew I had to write a few lines. Let’s give my daughters some initials: S is the eldest and M is the youngest. S has been struggling for a long time with an eating disorder and today, after a long, kind but serious talk she has decided to ask for professional help. I am so proud of her because I know how difficult it is to admit you can’t do it on your own. M has always been the more sensitive receptive one of this family and she has assessed her sisters problem more heavily then I have done. She sympathizes with her, is there for her and has at the same time very practical solutions.
After our long talk they both asked me if they could draw a card.
S had pulled the Woodward :
This card is telling me today that she has enough inner strength to tell herself: “enough is enough” and to face the situation and to act upon it. She is not a victim of her circumstances and she will move forward and do what is necessary to overcome her problems with courage and compassion.
And M had drawn the King of Vessels the Heron
M is all about control and finding balance. In doing so she has a lot of consideration and sympathy for others who are struggling with themselves. She listens and supports where it’s needed and accepted.
I was so proud of both my girls today. I am dead tired but my love for them exceeds that gloriously.
