Recent photo of my younger sisters daughter...my neice..and facing my fear....think it might have been worth it...

This is a recent photo of my niece sent to me the other day....I've not seen her in a long long time...more about this below in the third paragraph. Isn't she beautifu?...so proud of her...she's been on her own a long time just like me...we are kind of the "outsiders" of our family...I know she writes and does artwork also.....hmmm....now that's very interesting.

Things are looking up for me "Now"...in the "moment" and it has really been quite an interesting week that's for sure! I looked at"my" side of "Things" and then turned the tables and looked at "his" side of things. Then I took a leap of faith......so far so good! One day at a time they say...and it's all I can do anymore. I'm glad I took the steps I did and once again faced my fear "head on"....sometimes it does bring you interesting "surprises"...A Pisces and a Scorpio...one day at a time...we will see how things go.

Also my younger sister is getting much much better and she has gained weight and things look much better for her now , she's going to be ok. I hope she continues to "stay clean" and sober. She sent me a recent photo of her daughter, (my niece above) and she is now 27 (in the photo too) years old. I have not seen her in person nor a picture of her since she was 15 years old. When I looked at this photo above, I was stunned to see in her face the resemblance of so many people in my family! I saw her mother in her of course....but also looking at this photo I saw my older sister and one of my mothers sisters (who passed on years ago) aunt "Genie" who was tall, and had those beautiful cheekbones, just like my older sister does...and amazingly I saw my Father in her face also....and I even saw a little bit of myself in her face too. I am the "middle sister" out of the three of us. I tell you when I first looked at this photo (my younger sister e-mailed to me the other day) of her daughter, I just sat there staring at her, stunned, spell bound and seeing so much family resemblance it felt almost "eerie"....life sure has been interesting and lot's of changes of late...hope your all enjoying the holidays....mine just got a little bit better yesterday.....;o))

All for now blog friends,

Love Rhiannon

Christmas in my Soul....written and sung by Laura Nyro

video

Ironic how a song written and sung by Laura 40 years ago, can still ring so true.
About the state of our country "America" now and the world today. Her words speak "Volumes".

The Spiritual "Lessons" we've still to learn.

Joy to this World...........
