La Muerte's Blessings

La Muerte's Blessings
Several months ago an online friend sent me a beautiful Santa Muerte statue. She sits here on the desk on a shelf above my computer. I try to light a candle to her as often as possible, but with working part time and other new activities going on, I don't as often as I'd like because of the 5 cats we have around here. And they just LOOOVVVE to get on the desk and inspect everything up here! 



Her altar, at the moment, isn't much since we're still renovating around here. Eventually she will have a very beautiful altar specifically designed for her here in the house.

I believe part of her blessings to us comes from the love and adoration that she received from my friends' beautiful son when she was getting ready to package her up and ship her to me. Here is a picture of the love he showered on La Muerte just before being wrapped safely for shipping (this is just one of many pictures of him loving on her!)




Since La Muerte's arrival here just after the New Year, work is steadily progressing on our renovations; the machine shop has been getting quite a steady bit of business, especially through word-of-mouth; I have almost tripled the number of clients requesting works; I am a committee member for the new Farmer's Market that is starting in our little town; I am about to start a 4-H Club with the local 4-H Group here in our county/state; and local people are seeing some of my pyrography and other works and are considering commissioning some projects; AND the greatest one of all, is that the newspaper I work for is the best job I've ever had and I know that at some point in the future it will be mine. So, LOTS of great things are happening and between the Divine and La Muerte we have been truly blessed!

I can't wait to see what more is coming our way! Thank you to the Divine and La Muerte for everything! :)
