I don't want to make this post extremely long, but I wanted to take the time to talk about a couple of the blessings the Goddess has bestowed on me. This is actually mainly going to revolve around the Goddess blessing me with wonderful, understanding friends.
Last night, Mom and I were talking on the phone, she had called to ask Miss K some algebra questions to help out my little brother with his homework and then she talked to me for a while. We started talking about tarot cards. I currently own two decks of tarot cards, The Halloween Tarot, and Druidcraft Tarot. My mom loves my Druidcraft Tarot cards and has been trying to convince me to give them to her for a long time. This resulted in me telling her I would buy her a deck of her own. So, in true broke college student style, I log onto Amazon.com and start looking for good deals on tarot cards. I refuse to buy used cards because I don't know the people they are coming from but on Amazon sometimes you can find new unopened decks for a lot cheaper.
So, you guys need to know something about me ... I am highly addicted to tarot cards. Currently I only own two decks of tarot cards and one deck of Fairy Oracle Cards, but I have several decks on my Amazon wishlist that I am just patiently waiting to obtain. So, after I find a deck of Druidcraft Tarot cards for my mom for $13.32 new, I begin browsing all the other decks and yearning for them lol. Miss K walks in and goes "What are you doing? You're looking at your computer screen like it is your long lost lover." I explain to her my addiction to tarot cards and pull out my two decks plus my Fairy Oracle Cards. Miss K was fascinated with them which surprised me because Miss K does not believe in the tarot, she doesn't like the idea that your life is planned out. I tried explaining to her that that isn't what tarot cards are all about but the time I tried explaining that to her she was in a bad mood and not hearing anything about it. Now she understands a lot better.
So Miss K and I mess around with my cards for a while and I leave the cards out over night. The idea was I would be sleeping so who in the world would be able to mess with my cards. So I get up today at 10 am to get ready for class at 11, walk out the door at 10:50 and walk to class, leaving my cards out on my coffee table. I get to class and find out it has been canceled and have a conversation with another classmate, go to lunch, spend time with friends during lunch, then head back to my room. I walk in the door and the cards are still on the coffee table. I wasn't expecting company for a while so I started to clean my bedroom. The plan was to tidy my bedroom first, then start working on the living room.
So while I'm tidying my room, I hear a knock at the door. I didn't think anything of it, didn't consider covering the cards that are sitting out in plain sight on my coffee table in the middle of my living room. I open the door and my friend Mr. J is there. He comes over to watch tv, play video games, shoot pool, and fix my window. Mr. J didn't know that I am Pagan. I've been in his room and he has a Buddha and Shiva in his room but I didn't know if he knew what those symbols meant or if he just liked them. Well, I couldn't very well slam the door in his face just to put away the tarot cards and then let him back in, can anyone say RUDE!
So I open the door and he walks in and before he can say anything I say, "Please excuse the tarot cards, I haven't had a chance to put them away yet." I braced myself for anything bad that might happen and he excitedly says, "I want to see your tarot cards!" I was so surprised because I hadn't really known how he would respond. But, the deeper I get on my own path, the more I realize if my friends find out, then freak out, they aren't real friends and they aren't worth my time. So Mr. J now knows that I am Pagan, and as I write this, he is sitting on my bed talking to me about all kinds of randomness while he cuts his nails.
My point of this is post is that the Goddess has blessed me with friends that are open-minded and understanding. I am so thankful for the friends the Goddess has blessed me with. My wish is that everyone will be blessed with friends like mine.
