The moon is rising as I write these words.. Something so incredible and frightening just happened, and it can be nothing but a miracle. Magic.
My daughter, Luna and I were just outside enjoying this special full moon day. We picked out magical wands, (special sticks), and I made up some weird songs about the moon rising and the sun saying goodnight.. We sang and danced while holding our sticks and laughing.
I started watering some trees we just planting. Luna was close by, she was exploring, picking up pine cones, singing, and swinging her wand. She was having fun. She walked over to an outdoor solar powered light and grabbed it and started shaking it. She was only about 15 feet away from me. I noticed a bunch of bugs flying around her. Thinking little of it, I laughed and told her to come back, but she just kept laughing and singing and shaking the light. I walked closer to her, when in shock and total horror, I realized she was surrounded by WASPS. She had disturbed a wasp nest that was inside the solar light, and there were about 20 wasps (or more) flying around her. She was oblivious to the danger. She was having fun, she was singing, and laughing ,and they were buzzing. Literally circling her.
I quickly but calmly, picked her up and slowly backed away from the nest. I am still in shock and disbelief.She did not get stung. She must have had an angel protecting her. My sweetheart believes it was his little brother (who died many years ago), looking out for Luna. I just know, I will remember that image of my daughter smiling, surrounded by wasps, fully protected by some sort of magical force, and I will remember to believe. There is so much we can’t see. So much we don’t understand. I am so grateful.
Happy Full Moon.. Honor the Magic~Tiff
