Soul Sister

This is a new award.

A special award.

It is not one that gets passed from person to person to person in a long chain.

It goes to a person and then stops there.

Some other time someone else decides they want to award it to someone and they can come and borrow it and gift it to their Soul Sister.

There is a rule to this.

You must write about the person that you are awarding it to....

So how am i gifting with this award?

Anyone who knows my blog well can probably guess....


I started writing this blog some time ago now and I had no connection to any other bloggers to begin with. I found some big blogs but didn't form a personal link of friendship with the writers. I pressed the next blog button a lot and found many blogs I couldn't read and many that were not of huge amounts of interest to me.

Then I found Mel.

On the surface, at this time, her blogs were not quite as they are now. There was no witchiness evident. Nothing obvious to keep me there, except that we spoke the same language... But there was something. I have no children and I had never heard of unschooling. I was still drawn. I remember there being one picture, which I can not now find, where a little Bast figurine could be seen. A hint...

So I left some comment love and i got some back.

We became firm friends and she remains my best blog friend. There is much in our lives that seems to mirror. Sometimes the mirror isn't perfect, she has strengths where I have weaknesses. Our paths seem to run roughly parrallel and the things we work on often help the other, often unexpectedly.

From the beginning I have felt at home with her and at ease.

She is always there for me. She always fills my life with light and love. She is my Soul Sister.


  1. *sniffle* *sob*

    Thank you so much....words can't really cover this....

    ~much love~

  2. Oh! This is lovely and she is lovely. I couldn't agree more with how you have described her. Wonderful to have a friend like that, isn't it? Rose, I'm happy for you both.

  3. Great tribute to a lovely blog friend. (Well-deserved!)

  4. a beautiful soulful post.

    I love soul sisters. I do believe we have more than one - I am lucky to have met a few via blogging... true soul sisters, not a word I use lightly either.. so I know I am blessed to have met more than one - but I do also believe that this lifetime is one where we find many parts of our soul. xoxo

  5. What a great tribute, on my first comment i mentioned Saras blog. I meant Mel I must of had a moment. Take care.

  6. Rose, I love this award. It looks great, and your philosophy here is pure Goddess-genius. Mel is a very worthy recipient. I love you both so much.
    I think I might be along to borrow it for my bloggiest-love soon, if I may (shh ... don't tell anyone yet).
    I feel really uplifted now. Thank you so much. And I love what Mel wrote about you. She's right. Maybe you don't always realize the impact you make with your words. Oh my lovely witchy chums.
    Bright Blessings.

  7. Beautiful Tribute ! Its wonderful to connect with someone in that way...

  8. This is a wonderful award and thank you for coming up with it. The lovely thing about this one is that the recipient is not obligated to pass it on to others. Mel is very deserving of the award. She has been one of the first to comment on my blog when I started it about 6 months ago and she has been a loyal supporter since. I regard her as the "fairy godmother" of the blog world.
