Stirring and Stirring and Stirring my brew, WHOOOoooWHOOOooo

I love Halloween, I love to dress up, hand out candy and decorate, I participate in the parade of lost souls when I can. We light lanterns and walk through the streets of the city and there are fireworks and fire dancers, street performers fun stuff for kids. I dislike people who say that Halloween is "evil" or that it is "devil's day." People who hide from Halloween for those kinds of reasons deserve to have their house egged, and their trees TP'd. I don't believe in god, nor do I believe in the devil. Don't think I am an atheist, I am not.

You know, I used to wish that I could have an answer ready for when someone asked me "What do you believe in?" I was always afraid of that question, because I could never answer it the way my family wanted me to. Now I know how to answer it, and I can with confidence tell you what I believe in. I also know that if you ask me a question that I don't know how to answer, it is OK. I will not be stupid because I don't know, it is an opportunity to learn more, widen my knowledge, and deepen my beliefs.

It makes me proud that I know where I stand, I know who I am, I know what I beleive in, and nothing anyone says can take that away from me. I have spent a lot of years learning, and I will spend many more years learning. I am proud to be married to Pat, I am proud to be Sapphire and Morrigan's mom, I am proud to be my mothers daughter, but most of all, I know who I am. I know who I am .
