The Bedazzler


10mm Rhinestone Letter Z

Did you ever have one of those days?

Reflective?  Pondering?  Soul searching?

Yeah, me neither;)

Last night I was feeling particularly grateful for wonderful friends helping me through unfamiliar territory.

It led me to this wondering…about what it is…what do I do?  What might I have to offer?

I know that I can help with education stuff, there is that.

I can make delicious things, or sew, or create messes, or build something rather simple.

I am pretty good at growing things.

These were just not satisfactory.  Didn’t feel right.

I started wondering if maybe I should learn a trade, you know?

Something very useful and all that.

I could study to be an Esthetician!  I could get my own IPL machine!

This would be VERY apprciated and USEFUL too!

Well, there might be mishaps and some things it is really just better to pay others to do I guess.

So here I am again…wondering.

And then it strikes me…I said to someone recently…I am not practical.

This led me to my thing.

I am good at BEDAZZLING! 

This can be very complicated.

It does work well for anyone though – whether you are my child, mama, sista, love, neighbor, friend, neighbor in line at the store…and on and on it goes.

I can dazzle you with nonsense and silly tales, or just be quiet and hold up a mirror and let you dazzle yourself.

Okay, being quiet is hard for me…but I can do it. 

I am better about recognizing these moments than I used to be.

I just can’t help but look for the sparkle in your eye.  If it is dim I can help you find it…

If it is bright I will just stand back and admire…then there is the holding up the mirror so you notice and remember – this is a very important job.

If you have no time for such, perhaps I am not for you.

That’s ok. 

Sparkles have a very long shelf life and can be brushed off after many years of neglect…

I know this firsthand!
