Caring has the gift of making the ordinary special.George R. Bach
This morning in my meditation (and I always include you in my morning meditation) I felt the loneliness some of you feel, your overwhelm and grief, and your yearning to have someone with whom you can connect.
So, today I’ve made a pot of tea, and gathered some tasty treats and put a table for us out in the garden. A magical table, where we can all meet, and hug, and be together.
Come sit with me a while at my magical table, and tell me all about your week. Tell me your troubles. Tell me your hopes and dreams. Tell me about your success and your failures. Let’s laugh a little and maybe even cry a little.
That’s what friends are for.
Today I’m checking in on you, to ask if you’re okay and to see what’s going on in your life.
You’re always in my thoughts.
I believe in you and your dreams.
We can do this, and get through this, together.
I love you, hang in there, Nicole xx

This gift came at the perfect time!!! I am feeling sad, overwhelmed, empty and am not quite sure why =( Luckily I have an appointment later with my therapist <3
Hopefully will find some answers =)
Again…prefect timing THANK YOU!!!!!
Thanks Nicole perfect timing love to you too Mary-Anne
Would love to join you for magical tea party.My husband had been in bed for 2 days with a back injury,( preparing me for nursing him post cardiac surgery in the near future😇🤪 and my besty is sick with covid..English breakfast and a scone with jam and cream please!
Can’t tell you just how much I need this right now Nicole …thank you for the invite . I’m the one right up the corner , head it a book listening to the conversation .
I’m okay. Could be better, could be worse. Many things I am grateful for, many things I miss deeply. I want a different future but I can’t imagine how. I want some magic in my life right now. And a little more love. New ways of living, of thinking and of feeling. Some small adventures.
My week has been reasonably quiet but tumultuous as well. We haven’t done much and largely been at home. I have one child that has just gone onto antidepressants and I am spending bedtime every night helping them get to sleep and I am often woken by them in the middle of the night as well. I don’t want this to turn into a habit but I feel it already has. They are seeing a psychologist as well which I can hardly afford because I am not working my usual hours and won’t be til end of Feb (even if then because of Covid). I am taking on my kids feelings of grief and upset and they are spending far too much time online. It’s hard and it sucks and it feels like a never ending loop. I just hope that when school goes back, it’ll be a bit easier.
One good thing we have been doing is going on the occasional day trip, no screens, and just spending time with each other and doing something new and visiting places we haven’t been before. It’s been fun and I am looking forward to the next one.
Thank you for letting me share. They say a problem shared is a problem halved.
Hugs to you xxxxx
You are right, I am lonely. Very lonely. And sad.
lips quivering … lump in throat … heartbeat racing … shoulders slumped … and your post brings me hope & I’m reminded of Charlie Brown saying to snoopy that you can’t feel sad if you correct your posture & smile .. thank you for caring XO
Thank you to inviting me to your magical table can feel the comforting & nurturing energy
Been stressful here. Three of my grandchildren are recovering from covid. All of them were vaccinated.
Nicole,I am so grateful to be at your magical table.The hugs will be so welcome.Thank you.
Dear, dearheart! You are a champion for the forgotten and unseen and we are legion! Thank you yet again for holding space & love in these times as the world bends & morphs in strange and often scary ways❤️💚🌟
I am hanging in there be it in pain and sweating and of course shaking
Thank you Nicole
Never I have needed to hear these words more than this morning. As our family of 4 children are growing into young adults, throw covid into the mix, my husband is really struggling with this change. Our communication is disjointed, our once strong bonds are wavering as they become individuals. I hold hope and positivity in my heart, but sometimes, it all just gets too much and gets you down. Thank you for shining the light of possibility and helping me to refocus on what is really important. Much love x
