~ to be a part of,

so thankful we can choose to bask in all that this magical time of year can bring,
{& hoping to create these precious moments for others!}


~ painting moments,

filling the brushstrokes of our days with roses,

& dreaming in moments a lot over here 

~ this bounty,

this thanksgiving has been bountiful in so many wonders & treasures,

in gratitude, for the long journey & where we've climbed{they say the climb is hardest nearest the summit}
for sisters & dear ones, where're they may be,
for gold paint & window shopping,
for softness of moments{especially because the weeks leading up to, & the days directly after, have been filled with Quite! an amount of heartache{think moving house, several trips to hospital, severe back pain from a too much-too often workload, a lot of work deadlines & stresses etc, etc.. .
although this blog is not where i post my personal hardships,

this blog is where i post my hope

& so.. .}
for 24 hours, there was respite ~ a long, deep breath under starry skies & {what felt like} candlelit dinner parties, with warm fires & gold flecks of paint swirling upon pages
~ & it was in that moment, i Shimmered ~
gratitude aswirl & awhir 
in it's beauty & longevity of life

so today, i bundle some of these little pearls up, 
& send them to you,

with Love

~ insp. of late,

~ singing,

{brimmingly so!}

{empathy/sympathy/compassion ~ the ability to relate to & feel what others feel, to understand their hardships & take action to help alleviate their needs so they can reach their full potential 

~ empathy, compassion ~such important qualities to develop & improve! things in our family, our parents have always taught us, but i've really loved reading about it in this way, learning it really is a process & way of thinking/acting/helping that becomes a part of us & can be taught to others ~ so beautiful!}

hours, weeks & minutes, {encompassing days}

these fragile expanses of time.. .
