Lughnasadh is difficult this year. Some sad and complicated things happened in my family this week. I’m looking forward to seeing grovies this weekend, but today was a quiet celebration at home. I made a simple dinner of homemade cornbread, tacos with local ingredients, and leftover salt potatoes. We made offerings of cornbread in thanks for our blessings. We’ve been counting them a lot recently.
For games and physical activities, we took a long walk and played a couple card games while I nursed. We brainstormed some ideas for future celebrations when Bee is older.
As we enter the harvest season, I hope to keep my family close so we can take care of each other. I hope to harvest new happy memories with loved ones and to give my baby all I can. I pray Lugh gives my family the strength we need.
May your Lughnasadh come with a good harvest.
