Hello, friends! Baubles & Blessings is currently on hiatus. My spouse had multiple strokes last May. I had to move us into a tiny ground floor studio; I'm still working on downsizing and creating a new compact workspace. It's been such a slow process because I am also now AJ's full-time caregiver in addition to dealing with my own chronic illnesses.

Normal service will resume as soon as possible.

If you'd like to see what else I'm up to, consider checking out the Inclusive Beans or supporting my Patreon in the meantime.

Much love and brightest blessings to you all! I look forward to returning, refreshed and inspired, as soon as I am able to start beading and shipping again.

Ancestors: A Prayer for Brighid

A prayer for Brighid, as yet unnamed...

I cut ties with both sides of my blood family years ago and Brighid has taken her place as my adopted mother. Spiritually, she and her priestesses are my ancestry.

Beloved mother Brighid,
priestesses who were here before me,
please come to me now.
Surround me, be with me
and work through me,
imbuing my soul and physical space
with your love, fire, and light.

Day One: A Prayer for Brighid

Earlier, I was praying to Brighid, and asking for her to watch over me and guide me the right way as I sense major life changes approaching. Words began to enter my mind; words that, at first, I thought I was just saying to her. Then I thought, "I need to write this down."

I believe that she answered my prayer within my prayer. What a wondrous moment, and yet so very much like Brighid, the master wordsmith that she is.

I humble myself before you, Brighid.
