Rita MacNeil

Hi Everyone!

I was so saddened to hear that the lovely Rita MacNeil passed over.

One of my fondest memories is when my sister Diane (Lavender Lady) and I went to Cape Breton and visited Rita’s teahouse.

We had such fun. Here is my sister and I sipping our tea with our Rita cups!

The food was wonderful and we said wouldn’t it be so cool if Rita popped by! Well we looked out the window and lo and behold guess who was coming in.

After lunch we asked if she would mind us taking a picture with her. Being so lovely she said yes even though I’m sure she just wanted to be left alone to have her tea.

This picture is a treasured one.

The world is a little less bright without Rita in it. God Bless you Rita and thank you for being You!

Hi everyone.

If you get a chance in the next day or so go onto Susan Miller’s site and read the wonderful letter to her Mother who passed away.

It’s really touching and beautiful.

May Little Mom rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences to Susan and her family.

Bonk on the Head from the Universe

September 09th, 2012 | Category: Gems Along the Way,Musings by Sharon

Good Day everyone. How are you doing?

I’m getting excited as I do love Fall and I’m feeling the excitement of the Centre opening as well as getting ready for the beautiful colours and weather.

The Centre is all ready for everyone so I’m hoping you sign up for some courses. There is a calendar on the sister site Dorothy’s is full already and some are getting full so make sure if you are wanting to come to something you sign up.

If you are wondering why I have two sites and two blogs its because I have a gemini moon and I’m the last day of Taurus…..just kidding….although… its because I have the ability to change sugarmoon and its not so easy to change this site without a lot of help and moola as it is in FLASH. I’d need to go back to school for a while to figure it out and then they will be onto something completely new.

You may be wondering about the title of this blog and what it has to do with the above and of course nothing as I do ramble but what it does have to do with is a healing I had yesterday.

I was feeling somewhat overwhelmed with the daunting task of the Centre as much as I love it I was feeling a bit stuck and scared and inadequate.

When I called my healer (who when we talked I’ve known her for over 20 years or maybe more because I don’t think I had my older son yet who is 30?) for a much needed healing she said the following words and I will remember them until the day I leave this great Earth “Who are You not to be The Best You Can Be” (Carol C) let me repeat that:


She was so right. How arrogant could I be to say “OK” this has dropped in my lap and I’m doing my work and I’m not sure I am good enough to handle it. YIKES!

She got me thinking where in my life I do that. When do I doubt myself and say maybe I’m not the “girl” for the job. When do I get in the way of something and sabotage the h*ll out of it so the Universe has to go about it a whole other way to get it to me.

I’m hoping by sharing this little epiphany I had with you you can look at the things that you stop from coming in your life and say to yourself “who am I to do this to myself”.

During the healing I thought of a piece of jewellery I bought a long time ago of a mustard seed. While she was talking and I could do this because I have a Brittany Spears phone which is a headset I found the mustard seed and put it with my St. Michael on my neck to remind me of her words and remind me to have faith.

Verse for you:

“…. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

I’m back and I’m shining my light and moving my mountains! Nothing is going to stop me not even myself.

Here’s another Carol (C) saying which is the cutest thing ever “Sharon you just have to ride the wave sometimes until it gets to shore.” Gotta love her.

Until we meet again, Sharon


Dorothy Clark McClure

August 25th, 2012 | Category: Gems Along the Way,Musings by Sharon

Dearest Friends.

On August 19th I lost a dear Friend that I called my Earth Mom. Her name is Dorothy Clark McClure.

I called her that because I did have my own Mom whom I love and I was lucky enough to meet another in my lifetime too.

I met Dorothy at one of her many art classes and she was talking about her many trips to Indiana to Camp Chesterfield a wonderful Spiritualist Retreat and after the class I said to her “well when can we go together”. I think I shocked both of us by saying that but a few months later I was picking her up in my brand new green convertible suzicki sidekick heading down to Indiana. She said to me “I wasn’t sure if you were going to be a nut or what? but she  took a chance on me and I was the lucky one.

That was many years ago and since then we formed quite the bond. Dorothy was an amazing woman. Famous Artist, friend, mother to her wonderful children, wife, grandmother, mentor, teacher, you name it. The one thing I loved most about Dorothy was she was soooo deep! We could talk about anything. She probably had one of the most spiritual minds I have ever had the pleasure of listening to in this lifetime.  She was comfortable with any subject. The art she did was beyond this world.

When I moved out here to Oshawa I kind of didn’t get to see her as much as I should have and I realized that it was truly my loss. I should have made time. Now except for talking in spirit I really can’t ever be privy to this amazing woman. Now I will have to wait until I pass to talk to her.

I am truly going to miss this dear friend of mine who I love so very much.

I was strong at the funeral until the wonderful lady with the harp sang the song that we played at my Mother’s funeral “We will remember you.” That sent me over the edge at the loss and regret of not seeing her more.

The Minister said at her funeral “God Thank you for Giving us Dorothy” and I can’t think of any better words to describe how I’m feeling. Great thanks to the big guy above for giving me the chance to be in her life.

I guess I am wearing my heart on my sleeve here so that if there are any of you reading this that have someone in their life that they love and they don’t make time for them please cancel whatever silly thing you are doing that feels important and give them a call. You will thank me for it.

God Bless you my dear Friend I will never forgot you ever.Thank you for teaching me all you taught me and for being the wonderful blessed you.

Quote for you:

“Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I’ll miss you
Until we meet again!”

Betwixt and Between Blog

June 19th, 2012 | Category: Gems Along the Way,Musings by Sharon

Howdy Dear Blog Peeps!

I just wanted to mention that there is another blog that I am doing at the same time as this one on Sugarmoon Cottage.

To get there you just hit Bryan’s wonderful Betwixt and Between cartoon on the right and it will take you into Sugarmoon Cottage where you can pick either this blog or that blog.

The reason is that the latest blog is about a wonderful little earth angel named Veg who has become an internet sensation and I thought you would love to read about and maybe if you can find it in your heart send a little money to her for the children in Africa.

Keep in mind it is pounds. $10 is like $16.50. It’s all good though!

Be well dear friends. Stay cool as it’s a hot one!

Eaton’s Doesn’t Tell Simpsons

June 13th, 2012 | Category: Gems Along the Way,Musings by Sharon

Hi Everyone!

I was talking to my buddy Carolyn of Sands of Time Tarot and she was telling me about an expression her Mom said all the time when they were young and I thought it was so adorable.

It was Eaton’s doesn’t tell Simpsons.

It made me think of when we were young and would go downtown with the Christmas windows and the big events of shopping downtown.

So many memories.

June 04th, 2012 | Category: Gems Along the Way,Musings by Sharon

Welcome Everyone! Thank you for popping by as always!

Today our  brother Alan is 64! You have met him before in blogs like this one: Alan.

We have waited for Alan to be 64 for forever in order to have some fun with him because Alan loves the Beatles. ABSOLUTELY LOVES THEM!

For fun we had the following you tube video made on Fiverr.

They did a great job. Here’s the link for Dave and T’s Gig on Fiverr if you want to see how they do it!

Happy Birthday Alan! We Love you Tons Bro!

Quote for you:

“To the outside world we all grow old.
But not to brothers and sisters.
We know each other as we always were.
We know each other’s hearts.
We share private family jokes.
We remember family feuds and secrets,
family griefs and joys.
We live outside the touch of time.”
Clara Ortega

Until we meet again, Sharon
