Miss Spiderweb - Slowly beginning to work on my web again

Oracle of the Shapeshifters Miss Spiderweb
First and foremost I would like to thank all of you for your kind and warm comments and get well wishes on my previous post.  They really meant a lot to me.
Today’s card is Miss Spider Web,  from the Oracle of The Shapeshifters. This card is all about making new connections and rekindling old ones. Strengthening the parts of our web which are meaningful and  supportive and taking down those parts which are worn out and not adding anything of importance to the intricate structure of our web.
This morning my neurologist advised me to really take it slow and also to keep in mind that the recovery from my neck hernia will take a at least another six weeks or more. I was allowed to do the things I love the most but in only really small amounts of time. So this blogpost is done in several sessions of five minutes.
But at least I can start weaving and working on my online web again. Please understand that although I am doing the best I can,  I will not be able to leaves comments every day on the most beloved strings of my web but I do enjoy reading my favorites blogs each day.
I see this post as the beginning of my healing process for which I am ever so grateful.

Reason for my absence

As most of you already know, the last few weeks I have been plagued by pinched nerve in my neck. Last Friday I went to the physical therapist because the pain in my arm was getting worse every day. After doing some tests he was quite certain it was a neck hernia. So now I have wait for an appointment with a neurologist. This pain prevents me from typing (M is typing this for me) writing, photographing, painting, knitting etc. M is also doing our daily chores. Although this is a difficult situation, I also see this as an opportunity to try to become more flexible. I’m grateful M is helping out this much, but it also hard for me to let go of the control and my need to do everything myself. Please know I’m reading and enjoying everyone’s blogs, but for now I’m not able to comment.

I wish you all well and I hope to be back soon.
Hugs Ellen
