It’s funny, the things life can throw at you at the most inopportune times.
Last year, I created and posted to my Etsy store several eyeglass strands. It was a long process deciding exactly what to call them. The primary choices were lanyard and eyeglass holder. Neither of which adequately described what my product is.
Yes, you could still classify them as either of those designations, but I’ve always considered by eyeglass strands a much finer item of jewelry.
I was very happy to once again create these items. After all, I had started investing in gemstone and mineral beads with the intent of creating meaningful jewelry back in 2004. In fact, rededicating myself to the craft of jewelry design as well as other magical things brings a happy anticipation to my work. Designing with a purely loving intent is a very important ingredient in all my designs as well as other items I choose to list in my store.
I simply cannot work creating anything when there is any hint of negative energy within my energy field. I find much joy creating products for the positive benefit of whomever finds a need or desire for them.
And so, life . . . as it sometimes does . . . presented an obstacle that waylaid the best of my plans. This seemingly constant pattern of my life yet again shows itself.
So while I was preparing to continue my design work in early January, fate played her trump cards.
Suffice it to say, I have a much greater respect for health care workers than ever before. The people who care for us, or our loved ones . . . who are tasked with changing bed-ridden patients . . . deserve our respect for doing a job that few of us would choose to do.
Now, having first hand experience taking care of my elderly dad – who, at best – is a difficult patient – I can tell you it is truly a blessing that there are people who take up this task. I am so grateful that we found a facility which hopefully proves to be as top-notch as it seems to be.
Am I being cautious in my assessment? You bet.
If I told you the whole story of what brought my Dad . . . a man who just 2 days earlier was riding around in a shopping cart looking for pickles . . . to being bedridden for the past six months, you wouldn’t want to believe it.
Currently, we have been blessed with the VA providing long term care for my Dad. I now feel the pressure of daily caring for him lifting and I am adjusting my energy towards a positive outflow.
Those who understand personal energy output will have no problem understanding any of this. Those who do not, well . . . just take it with a grain of salt.
So, while I’ve been absent in furthering my online Etsy business, I’m working on some new items I’m hoping you’ll find of benefit during the Yule Tide. As my head re-aligns with my heart . . . I’ll be offering more information.
Blessings to all,
