Rainbows...

“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.”
~Irish Blessing 
It's so comforting for me to know that after the rain, the magnificent and healing sun appears and sometimes we even get the gift of a rainbow.  We've heard it a million times before, but it's true...without the rain, we'd never get to experience the breathtaking and magical beauty of a rainbow.  Life is full of challenges and obstacles we must overcome; no one is exempt from this reality.  However, we must choose to see the opportunities that exist within these challenges and move forward with renewed optimism and hope.  I am blessed beyond measure; for the rainbows in my life are all of you...my family and friends who are always there to listen, give advice or a kind word, or simply just be with me.  For you are all truly my "rainbows".  
My most recent crystal creations reminded me of all the colors in a rainbow!  I'm thinking of creating a monogram crystal collection and would love your feedback!  Let me know your thoughts!  

My Favorite Rainbow :-)

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend!

Hope Guinness is doing well and I send you stars and rainbows this beautiful day. I adore these crystals and they remind me of the movie Polyanna when they string them up and her inner light brings peace to the individuals and community she comes to even after being orphaned. I send you light and receive that from you with this beauty you have created and shared with us. Blessings friend, be safe.
