Day 3 Gift of Presence- Solstice!!

“The sun was born again today,
we greet the suns first morning ray,
we sing and celebrate the light,
the sun’s born in the longest night”

This is our family solstice song.

When the kids go to bed tonight they will lay out silk scarves. While they sleep the Solstice Fairies will come and and use the scarves to wrap up little pieces of nature and hand made goods. This year I watched as the fairies deliver the gifts, the girls received a tortoise shell, petrified wood, a fossil, some feathers, a statue of lakshmi, and half the jaw bone of a very big animal. I have no doubt the girls are going to be very happy with their morning surprises. I love family traditions!

“What is one of your favourite family traditions?” is the question in 12 days journal #253
