Julie Cottle found herself extremely busy this week with the birthdays of her 3 young children, all 3 boys have their birthday in the same week. This got her to thinking she never arranged a blessingway for her three boys. Julie explained,
"I've wanted a blessing way for each of my 3 births but have never gotten around to it. I would like to use the idea of the blessing way in the lead up to my blog's birth day. Very simply put, a blessingway is thought to have been a tradition that was begun by Native Americans. It was a ritual to offer blessings at life passages and has now become a popular alternative to a baby shower. It gives other mothers present the opportunity to share experiences, their learned wisdom and to offer support and encouragement as the new mother makes her transition to motherhood. "
So as she missed the chance with her children, she has decided that she will do it with her latest baby, albeit a virtual one.
