Listening to rainbows

 My life has been strange lately - everything seems the same but it doesn't feel the same...and rainbows keep popping up everywhere I go. It all started with a photo posted on a forum that a friend had taken

Thanx to Cherie for letting me share it with you :)

I sat staring at the rainbow for ages and I felt something come over me (no I'm not crazy, lol) but as you do I didn't give it much thought and carried on doing what I was doing.
Then I was at my favorite bead shop and as I walked in I literally came face to face with a picture of a rainbow and strangely walked out with nothing.....nothing that fitted or worked with what I was beading in fact I wasn't beading, i couldn't make it work. 
Fast forward to days later and we decided to take the kids out to Nanny's - I wasn't too happy feeling that day...I was angry and frustrated but I didn't know why so I tried to keep quiet and lent my head on the car door only to look up and see for myself a beautiful rainbow spread across the many rainbows I'd have to be stupid not to notice.
So I thought about it a lot and then I went backwards....I say backwards cos I wasn't moving forward, maybe I didn't move at all but I finally listened to that whisper in my ear...................
A rainbows beauty simply says that even after the roughest storm things will get better. Beauty will appear in a person's life again. This is the spiritual meaning.

Recognition is what I received, my prayers have been acknowledged and I just have to trust that its okay........just like the whisper said 'One movement at a time'.

Special for St Patricks day aka my sons birthday

My little Angelus Xavier is turning two tomorrow, awww such a big boy - where does time with them go.
Its amazing how my precious angel has grown from a quiet, never complaining baby to a full on, loves to boing boing on our bed, charge around everywhere toddler, very independent and full of 'What's that' .
I had alot of problems during and after Ange's pregnancy and bonding with him but everyone was right - no matter what happens I'll still love him so much it hurts my heart, he's beautiful and I am so thankful he was given to me. Someone up there obviously knows what I need much better than what I do........
So in honor of my 3rd son I thought i would do something special and offer free shipping at my websites:

precious rosaries
platinum panties

and my etsy store :)

Offer good until Sunday 21st at 5pm.

An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Dancing on the ceiling.....Oh, what a feeling

Woohoo I have completed making from scratch a whole entire website (and no i had no dreamweaver/other program).....My back is killing me and my eyes just about can't see but its done and ready to go! I am so proud that I did it myself - its the best thing I've done lately and it adds to my list of things I can do - I feel so capable and that is a good feeling for this world.
Anything is possible as they say and by trying we prove that for ourselves. i am so happy I really could dance on the ceiling....

I can also do custom orders and we have a layby option available as well.

The soft tan one is made from cherry wood

The rings are finished with Certified Organic Flax Seed Oil and Orange Wax and just perfect to chew - ready to go!

The teething rings are wonderful natural alternatives to the awful plastic ones normally available on the market .
The rings measure about 3 1/8" in diameter and is about 3/8" thick although being handmade it is not an exact measurement.
