Day One: A Prayer for Brighid

Hello, friends! Baubles & Blessings is currently on shipping hiatus. My spouse had multiple strokes in May. I had to move us into a tiny ground floor studio which doesn't yet have a workspace for me. I'm also currently jumping through hoops to become AJ's home care aide after being with them in the hospital and becoming a full time unpaid caregiver since they came home from inpatient rehab in August. Please only order at this time if you are okay with a completely open-ended delivery date. Normal service will resume as soon as possible.

If you'd like to help us come up with the funds to pay for my certification classes and survive until I start getting paychecks, please consider checking out my GoFundMe 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.

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.

help me to help myself do my best;
help me to help myself succeed;
help me to not get in my own way;
help me to recognize the balance between caring for myself and overwork.

Help me to find inspiration,
so that I may do your work truly to the best of my capability;
that I may serve you with love for you and for others,
that I may bring your presence to this world, so in need of your guidance and compassion. 

I humble myself before you, 
flame that lights the world and the way,
and ask for your blessings. 

I believe.

Today is Day One.
