Feelings & Rays of Sunshine


I have been feeling lots of feelings lately. The last few weeks always bring back memories of loss, heartbreak and missing. Whenever you come to an anniversary of losing someone who holds a special place in your heart it, well at least for me, hurts all over again, fresh and new. I spend my winter months looking forward to and planning all these grand adventures…then summer arrives and I am hit with dates on the calendar that break my heart all over again. Now I want to say that the missing and brokenness occurs all year round. But there is something fresh about the specific dates on the calendar.

Why I am I sharing this on my blog that is mostly, always been about my arting? Well because it is fresh. Because everyone hurts and needs to be encouraged. Because my feelings effect my arting. I want to be honest with you. After all, we are journeying together. I have been walking in a lot of defeat. I do not sell as much jewelry or even has often as I would like. There are more aspects of my life, than I think I even admit to myself, that are not where I would like them to be. I am making a change today! Why today? Well, because it is the day that is happening. I will be looking for the blessings, the good, the moments that are worth dwelling on, instead of walking in defeat.

If you have been walking through a crisis, struggling with the way things are, I want to encourage to look today for a ray…one single ray of sunshine. Here is mine; though not ideal (I’m being honest remember), my family has a roof over our heads. There is quite a story behind needing to see it has a ray of sunshine…but is true. Though I was at work while they slept, my humans got to sleep in beds with a roof over their heads, for that I am thankful and blessed!

Big things my friends! Big things are coming! So until next we meet at the workbench…keep creating, enjoy your moments and keep your chin up. As always thank you for stopping by and for being on this journey with me.

Big Love,
