My husband has improve a lot and might coming home tomorrow. I forgot to grab my charger when I went home briefly to take of my fur babies. So no posts until tomorrow, sorry.
This will be the only post for today.
World Trade Center Before and After
I could not pick just one photograph for the memorials in different countries to those that died here is a link to look at The Memorials
The United States of America Pentagon Military Building
The red circle in the first photo is where the plane crashed into the Pentagon.
Images from Flight 93 Crashed near Shanksville, PA
“On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.”
To read this lead story on History.com and may others about what happened on this day 18 years ago just click here Nations Around the World Mourn Yes I could quote articles from many different sources about this day but I could only handle reading some of the articles from this source before I started feeling the pain, confusion, and mourning of this day 18 years ago. If you wish to read other sources here is the general search link I used Google General Search for 9/11/2001
Do you remember where you were when American Airlines Flight # 11 hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center better know as the Twin Towers at 8:46 AM ET ? Then came United Flight # 175 flying into the South Tower at 9:03 AM ET. Do you remember where you were than? Next was American Airlines Flight number 77 that flew into the Pentagon at 9:45 AM ET. DO you remember what you were thinking about when this third plane tried to take out the USA’s center of all military operations? The last plane to crash that surreal day was in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:10 AM ET the brave men and women after hearing about the other planes tried to take back control of Flight 93. The misled devotees of Osama bin Laden crashed the plane into a field just to keep control of this plane that investigators that was headed for the USA capitol in Washington D. C. or Camp David, a presidential retreat, in Maryland. This was the only flight where the only casualties were the brave people aboard the plane. Do you remember what you were doing or thinking than? I light 1 white taper candle at the time that each of the airplanes were use as a weapon to attack the USA by a terrorist organization.
For those of us in the USA the air was quite when then President George W. Bush grounded of all flights into and out of the USA until further notice, Most of us were in shock not only from the attack but the fact that we could look up and not see any type of plane or helicopter in the air for the first time in the history of airplanes taking passengers all over the world. I remember thinking, “This is how peaceful the air was for birds before the first plane ever flew.” Which may seem like a strange thought but waiting to find out if relatives of mine had made it out of the South Tower or not I had to turn my mind towards nature just to allow myself to think at all without screaming.
Thank the gods and goddesses my family did not lose the life of a loved one that day but to this day they are different people than who they were before the attack suffering from PTSD and survivors guilt one took their own life on the 10 year remembrance day of the attack that took so many of their friends. I refuse to call all the September 11ths after the horrific one in 2001 an anniversary because anniversaries are suppose to recall a day that something happy happened such as a wedding or your first kiss, etc. If anyone reading this lost someone to death or mental illness or physical disability on September 11, 2001 or as a direct result from this date if you feel you can please share your friend or love ones name in the comment section. If you want to add anything else about the person please do I for one would like to know more about the person behind the name who was needlessly sacrificed by the terrorist either here or in the military. Also remember the animals that have given their lives searching the World Trade Center Towers and in foreign lands. Many gave their lives so their human could be safe.
I ask each and everyone of reading this post to please take time out of your busy day to remember those that perished on this day and the families and friends left behind also all the military personal and their family and friends who died fighting in a foreign land hopefully keep our country safe from another terrorist attack on our soil. All these people deserve the honor of us remembering them and the sacrifices made on September 11, 2001. The Ancient Egyptians believed that as long as a persons name was not forgotten and spoke out loud they were still alive in the underworld. Following is the list of names for all of those who were sacrificed on that surreal, horrible day 18 years ago. Please randomly pick out names from the almost 3,000 and say them out loud during the time you take today to remember the honored dead along with their families and friends. Keep in mind that these people came from my nationalities, religions, and cultures. Some I am sure were our pagan brothers and sisters. Also, try to remember as hard as it maybe that the families who did not know their child was a terrorist have to live with the shame of what their child did to other peoples children. I ask you to please say a prayer for the innocent family members of the 19 terrorist that came to our country to try and destroy much more then just our way of life these innocent people need comfort also.

I had a very busy weekend. The only actual enjoyable part was meeting my new grandson. Today I’m going for a Heart Echo Stress test, not looking forward to that. If I’m not to tired when I get home I’ll try to put up a post or two. Wish me luck that I can do the whole stress part of test. Thank you
Blessed be my dear ones
Last evening I became the grandmother to my 6th grandson bring my grand total of grandchildren to 9!! I was allowed to do his Wiccaning with in minutes of his birth so his ancestors are already watching over him along with my son and daughter-in-law also our large extended family.
I asked for prayers for my daughter-in-law (D-I-L) as she had to have an emergency c-section due do preeclampsia (women in the later stages of their pregnancy can all of a sudden develop high blood pressure that can be life threatening to mother and the child she is carrying) and gestational diabetes. As she was adopted she has none of her medical history background but I am not to worried about my grandson as my D-I-L has been healthy but a little overweight her whole life.
Please do not share this post with anywhere else due to a request from my son. Thank you.
I am sorry for letting you down by not getting the basic daily posts up today but there is a very good reason.
I wound up in our local hospital thanks to a scary but very mild heart attack and was not released until after lunch. The doctor said because of my quick actions of calling the EMTs and taking an aspirin the damage was extremely limited to my heart. I now have to go on a little stricter diet, basically rest and stay hydrated over the next couple of days than I will be fine to go back to my crazy schedule. The doctor said there should be no long or short effects as long as I eat the right way, stay hydrated, start with mild exercise and work up to a moderate level.
She believes it was brought on by poor dietary choices, high cholesterol, and stress. I am not worried about this heart episode shortening this lifetimes incarnation. So I ask that you not worry for me also. Thanks. I should be post I hope tomorrow just not as early as usual.
For more information on the flooding the area that is in effect until Monday at 7 AM CT please use this link: https://m.accuweather.com/en/us/paducah-ky/42003/weather-warnings/328977
I know Lady Abyss would want us to not only asks for her and her family’s safety but for the wildlife, pets, and other humans affected by this natural disaster.
Let me just add this, there had been undergound mining for years all this flooding can cause new sink holes to open up or open ones to grow larger. So the damage from the tornadoes and flooding is just part of the danger Lady Abyss and others are facing.
Please pray for their safety amd light candles for their protection.
Flooding has been a huge problem this year for most of the Midwestern States. Our novice Hailea sent her last email to me was the beginning of March. Here is the last message she was able to get out to me. As she is a sherriff where she lives she is on the front line of keeping people safe. I ask you pray for her, her families, friends, animals, and all other people in these areas most of which are still under some water or trying to salavage what they can of their homes and towns.
“The flooding is affecting Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri currently. We are scrambling trying to sandbag what little bit is left to keep those who live in the hills with clean water as most of our water treatment centers are located along the rivers. It’s been an absolute mess and it looks like this will continue through the summer.
This is her email from March 16th:Just a little update. Here in Northwest Missouri we are experiencing some MAJOR flooding. The worst flood we have ever experienced and the highest river levels ever recorded. I may or may not have access to the internet in the weeks to come. So far in my county we have 3 towns that have evacuated and more is to be expected. Our roads are shut down in and out of the county and it’s getting worse by the day. Everyday I come to work at the Sheriff’s office we are having more road closures and it is expected to be just as bad most of the summer as the Missouri River Dam in Yankton South Dakota continues to release water to keep their area from flooding to protect their game and wildlife while those of us down river are in a literal state of emergency. The National Guard and Red Cross has finally showed up as of yesterday. The whole tri state area is absolutely devastated, all of the precious farm land that keeps our area going financially has been destroyed and will not be usable for the foreseeable future until river levels subside in the coming months, after their projected planting season of course and by that time it will be too late to get anything in the ground to be able to harvest later in the year. The water came in so fast most farmers couldn’t even rescue their live stock. There are small islands in places where there are 15-20 cows, chickens, pigs, and even wild life such as deer stranded with no dry land in sight for up to 10 miles in some places. There isn’t hardly any National News coverage about this horrible natural disaster. Ill like a few videos and attach a few pictures if you would like to see any of this. I guess i am just asking for the Coven to think about anyone here in the Midwest that is being affected by this. I don’t know if there is anyone else in the Coven from these states.
These photos are also all from around our area. You can see just how high the water is in some places, almost to the tops of grain bins that are usually between 8-12 foot tall.”
I have not hear from her since. She did say as soon as there was a cell tower working outside the immediate area she will check in with me. Her last message she had to drive 20 minutes to get a text sent to me.
Found out why I’ve been feeling so yucky. I have the adult version on mononucleosis which is called Epstein-Barr virus. So I guess at 61 years wide I’m a teenager again, gives a little body shake at that thought. I was a rebel until about 16 then got married the first time and had my oldest child about a year later. Sorry about that my mind tends to go on tangents when I don’t feel well. If you have the time and want to I would appreciate maybe a healing candle kit or to be remembered in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
Through research on the Epstein-Barr virus I found out that between 90 and 95% of adults carry this virus but it hardly ever activates and if it does it is only one time. I got news for those researchers they need to do another study because this is the second time I’ve had it.
For the next week or so I will try to post on Coven Life. I’ll ask your forgiveness in advance if a post makes no sense because I did it when I was half asleep..lol
I wish you all a beautiful day. Know that I have missed posting on here. I
I thank the Lord and Lady every day for Priestess Hypatia and all the help and support she gives me. I now and say, “Namaste dear sister Hypatia. May you be blessed with nothing but positive things for all you do for me, our students, and other readers of Coven Life.”
This will be the only post for today. Please light a candle in memory of the people and animals who have died over the centuries to keep the restof of us safe.
May those who remember rest peacefully in the Summerlands.
May their family and friends find comfort and support to help ease their grief.
So mote it be.
Sorry, I would have gotten this up earlier in the day but just had the time now from an overly busy day to get to my emails. I just learned from a post on WOTC what happened at Lady Abyss’ courting hearing today.
If you remember approximately 5 weeks ago Lady Abyss for a job as wall around help at Kade, Lady Abyss’ familiar, get office. Everything went well in the morning but all Hades broke loose after lunch when the owner/veterinarian attempt to take her when she refused to submit the vet hit her so hard across the face the rolling office chair went backwards into the wall and the vet was choking her. Needless to say Lady Abyss’ defended herself. Both she and the would be rapist were both arrested because when they arrived in the scene, the veterinarian office, she was in top of him hitting. It is not known what that caused her to react as strongly as she did because she had a black out probably becaus e of he head bouncing of the wall and being choked. She has no recall from the time her head but until the police arrived. To make a long story short when they individually appeared before the judge for bail the vet hit out on his own signature while Lady Abyss had to pay a $5000.00 cash bail. The judge who did this is a good friend of the best besides his grandson stalking Lady Abyss’ daughter years ago when she broke off her relationship with him. So by law the judge technically should have excused himself from all involvement in the case because of conflict of interest but he did not do that. Also the attackers was taken to the hospital while Lady Abyss was seen for about 5 minutes in her jail cell even with the bump on her head and clear hand prints from being choked wear visible on her neck not to mention her other health problems.
Now because of the “good old boy” rules of having each other’s backs when Lady Abyss faced the same judge today the blindfold on Lady Justice definitely was tied so tight she could not see. Even though the vet did not show up in court to press for Lady Abyss being fined or imprisoned or both, in others words the so called injured person could not testify. But the state of Kentucky has decided to press charges anyway. She now has another court date in August.
I ask you to please keep praying, lighting candles, and think positive thoughts that when she goes back to court that the case is dropped since she was the person attacked and was arrested for defending herself. Ask that the scale of justice be truly balanced and the blindfold removed from those who are suppose to be advocates for the victim do what is right. Please write to Lady Abyss telling her of your support, love, appreciate for all we learn with her hard work on WOTC, and maybe mention something personal she has done for you either through a post or an email. You could throw a.joke in there too to show her it is good to laugh even through life’s most complicated and/or worse times of our life. I know she will appreciate hearing from each of you. The email to send your notes to is email@example.com. I’m the subject line please put “Personal for Lady Abyss. If you write a comment instead of sending an email. I will complied all of them into one email and send it out to her this coming Saturday. Let’s let our beloved sister know we stand with her to support, love comfort her whenever she needs it.
Thank you very much sisters and brothers of CL and WOTC in advance to those who take maybe 5 minutes out of their day to let our great, beloved Lady know you care.
The last two weeks in my life reminded me why I had my children when I was young. 6 weeks after my 44th birthday my youngest of 5 children turned 18. If my darling Sean Michael had lived I still would have only been 54 when he turned 18. I have been helping my younger daughter by watching her almost 4 year old son week days since April 19th and even though I love him a lot I thank the Great Mother today’s the last day of watching him until the 15th while my daughter trained for a new at home job. He has a 16 year old sister who is embracing her inner witch, even if she chooses not to tell her parents yet, and a 6 year old house of fire brother. About half the nights I stayed at my daughter’s so I could get a couple of hours extra sleep or at least try to.
Besides all of this the 6 year olds birthday was the first day of this marathon then my birthday came. My middle son and his wife gave the family permission to tell the world my 9th grandchild will be welcomed on to this plane of existence sometime towards the middle of August. Than yesterday I see a post my oldest son put on Facebook not only to tell theirown friends but his parents and children the he married a woman on April 30th whom my son had kicked out of their shared apartment last summer because of her drinking, drugging, emotionally and physically abusing him. So needless to say it put me and his 3 adult children into shock and that’s put it mildly for myself. I will find out more this evening when I talk to him.
If you would be so kind as to say a prayer or light a candle or both for the health of my daughter-in-law and my grandson. I and my son will be very grateful.
As for my older son’s marriage I ask if you would please ask the Universe to give him extra protection. Not only as his mother butI as his spiritual mentor also I am afraid for him. I love him and after I tell him the hurt I and his younger daughter feel, I haven’t talk to his other daughter and only son yet, for the way the told us he was getting married. I will listen to the reason he married his abuser after being totally rid of her. I will wish them a long happy life together and offer to Do a handfasting for them. I’m an ordained minister I could have gone the 3 1/2 hours to where they lived, married them in acouple park with only their immediate family members that could of made it there and a potluck reception and off they go. Oh well he’s almost 44 and as with all my descendants he walks to the beat of his own drummer. Also, except for one week total my husband’s been out of work since the beginning of March. Last but not least I go back to the orthopedic surgeon this Tuesday to find out if I need more knee surgery or just some physical therapy. As much as I dislike PT it’s a lot better than surgery.
While my life is once again a rollercoaster I know the one place where I can always find support and stability is by being open and honest with my chosen family that includes whoever is reading this. I have missed interacting with you, posting new information and reading your emails. This weekend I will be working on getting Coven Life up to date for May’s Moon phases and events. It you are not a coven member by being a student we have decided to open coven membership for a $25.00 annual fee payable after the Elders review a questionaire you need to fill out. If you are interested write to us a firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Applying 4 Coven Membership.” We will email you the questionnaire within 24 to 48 hours.
May you have blessed and Magickal weekend
