Frija, Great Alle-Mutter; caregiver of Family, Hearth and Home, wife to Alle-Vater Wotan. Teach us to be patient but not passive; wise but not haughty in our wisdom; far seeing yet not blind to that which is before us. May we nurture life, increase life, and live our own lives more fully. Through you we give honor to our human mothers. Through you we see all the beauty that surrounds us as well. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HEIL, FRIJA, as we honor the Frija that resides in us all!
