Surprise, Recognition and Gratitude

This past week I had three surprises...all in a row. The first came as being featured in an Etsy storque article. They picked my September (Summer's End) bracelet. The following day, my garnet blossom necklace was featured on the Vintaj supply blog. I thought to myself...WOW, 2 days in a row in 2 separate venues. Well, here comes number 3...I was featured on the front page of Etsy. If I had the ability to do cartwheels without 1. making a fool of myself and 2. inflicting bodily harm to myself and all around me, I would have been flipping non stop!


I have been questioning, for some time, if what I am doing is right. I have been asking God and the Angels to give me signs that I can recognize so that I know that I am on the right path. I have been asking them ...Am I wasting my time? Do people really love my stuff? How am I going to make this work? Can do this, and this alone as my livelyhood? Can I still help people by making pieces of jewelry that help to heal their body, mind and soul?


This week, they have given me the signs in the form of powerful recognition. I have had customers leave beautiful comments after receiving their goodies...and then buying some more from me. My friends have always been SO supportive...to them I am forever grateful and definitely beg their forgiveness when I am in a sullen mood when business is not going like I think it should. I am grateful for my signs...for the angelic interventions that help to put my racing heart at ease.


Here are the links to my signs:

Thank you, my angel friends...you are being heard loud and clear!

You deserve the recognition, not only for your beautiful craftsmanship, but for the love you put into your work. You, me friend, are an angel...

From This Moment to That said...

I'm seconding everything barbf117 says!!

Footsteps of Angels,

With a slow and noiseless footstep
Comes that messenger divine
Takes the vacant chair beside me
Lays her gentle hand in mine.

Henry W. Longfellow
