Well it has happened, the kids are off to yet another year of school. To be honest this year was a hard one for me. I struggled to send them, not because I am afraid, but because I am afraid.
I am afraid the toll of the psychological impact of those living in fear will be too much. I am afraid of the effects of the chaos, unknowns, sudden changes on my sweet babies.
So I struggled as I am sure most momma's did this year for all the reasons.
Thats the thing, when I get over my mad, step away from my outrage, and remember we are all momma's doing out best to protect our babies for the harshness of the World right now.
Its totally not just a right or left, good or bad, right or wrong thing, its a momma thing.
What does this have to do with jewelry... well not a whole lot except I now have some more time to work.....
At least uninterrupted work of a morning after they leave, before I head to the office I sneak in an hour or two of studio time.
If you follow me on social media ( www.instagram.com/paintedeggjewelry ) you will have noticed I have expanded the collection to include Necklaces, rings, and Clay pieces. Having time to explore, and grow in these area's is a certain blessing. Making Catholic Jewelry, that allows women to show, speak, and proudly wear their faith.
This right now fuels my peace. Gives me a purpose, helps me find a way to connect with all the other mothers out there. Collectively gathering us all under Mary's Mantle, and reminding me that we are one Church, one people, One nation guiding our families the best, serving the Lord the best.
Its hard right now, its hard, but were all trying and were all doing what we feel is best.
I just have to keep creating, making peace for myself, and praying for the world.
