Happy Thanksgiving

Blessings to all ,this precious Thanksgiving Season!!

O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker." Psalm 96

"Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." Psalm 100

Colossians 3:15
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful

Psalm 69:30
30 I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.

Mixed Bag Giveaway!!

If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11: 28

Amen to that!

I find myself throughout the day carrying a armload of things... my purse, the boys book bags, food, phone, coffee and the list goes on and on... so I came across these awesome eco- friendly bags, that HOLD everything!! So, I must give one away for free.

GOD wants to help carry our heavy loads, my heavy load most days is Autism. I want to fight it some days, love and embrace it other days, and then sometimes I want to lock it in a draw and throw away the key, as to never see it again... and then I a reminded of GOD's love for me and how he chose me to be Trey's mom.

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ- Galations 6:2.

Leave a comment for a chance to win!! I would love to hear what you would use this bag for and what you might carry in it. Contest ends Nov 6th @ Midnight.

I chose yellow because it reminds of sunshine, and even if it is raining or overcast, this will remind you of GOD's love for you and HE is always shining down on you!!

The winner gets to chose which size bag they want, and you can add an intial to it!!
Blessings, Peace, and "SON" shine,

Last Call...

Soooo this it, the last week..
I have decided after a year of trying to be super nurse and mom at the same time, to step back and go back to being MOM to Trey and Parker. I had always wanted to be a nurse growing up, and achieved that goal 14 years ago. However, when Trey was born I decided to take some time off and spend with him, then Parker came. After being at home, I decided to go back to one of my first loves, Nursing. As a mom to a child with special needs I watched as my little boy slipped into some regression.. the crying, the stemming came more often, the "mommy has to go to work now", the weeknds of preparing him for me being on call. At times, I cried silently with him. I wanted to be able to do it all, be SUPER MOM, SUPER WIFE, SUPER NURSE and just plain SUPER!! Well, I crashed and IBS became unbearable to where I had to see a Gastro MD- which I believe GOD sent me there, thanks to the nice polyp they found.. which was totally unexpected, and stated a couple of years from now.. probably the news would not be so good, then my hair started to thin due to stress, I already have thin hair.. so that was not going to work, the Dr said you have to slowwww down... easy said than done.. I am a perfectionist plus I can do it all!! Right?
My husband so supportive, just shook his head most of the time, but was always supportive. I believe there are seasons for things, and my season of being a Super Nurse comes second to being chosen to be Trey and Parkers mom. So instead of looking and feeling like I failed not being able to do it all, I actually gained knowledge and knowledge they say is POWER!
So thank you for letting me share, therapy I guess.. I do not regret the decision to leave my job, but feel some sadness..
but I will "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding" Proverb 3:5
So co-owners get ready the boss is back, and we got work to do..homework, playing, reading together, and just plain loving... O, we do have a Show to get ready for and post new stuff-YAY!
Happy Week!

New Bangles!

Hi Everyone! I wanted to post some NEW sample bangles we just got in. We are working in overtime, me and the co-owners ,to get things ready for our Big Show in Florence SC. We have more to add, especially the New handstamped jewelry~ it is really nice! So here are a few pics...

When I received them I was so surprised to see the Autism one. It made me stop and think that the reason I started this company was for Trey and to honor my Grandmother. So once again I say to you both, I love you. All Autism bracelets ordered ,a % will go towards Autism support, research or our Team for the Autsim Walk.

Parker sweet boy, I love you, too.

Blessings to all, and Happy weekend!

Back to school, friends and specials!

The Perfect "Back to School" Accessory- Monogram Bookmarkers

Its that time!

If you are like me, you are preparing to send your little ones back to school. It makes me sad...summer is ending, and I constantly wonder if we did enough, did they have fun, did they think I worked to much...on and on.. So as a get out Trey's uniforms for school I realize, my "little" boy who is now going into first grade, can not wear last year's uniform.. he has grown. How could this have happened? We live in the same house, and see each other every day!! Denial, it is a terrible thing, but this summer he lived in boxers and t shirts, so am I fully at fault?? Sooo- as I was happy at the fact I had completed all my "back to school shopping" , I left out the important - "big boy" cloths.. Well let me get my box of kleenex and head out to the Mall. So if you see me and I am crying, you will know why. They are not tears of joy that he is going back to school, but tears of sadness, because he can't stay with me, in his little boxers.

I guess I better check Parker's closet too.. I may need a case of kleenex.

Friends!! Please tell your friends about us and have them join the blog . You and your friend will get 20% off your order. I posted below some really cute pony tail holders that would look great for school. We also have bows and other accessories that are not on the website that I have in stock right now and ready to be shipped. I would love to send you a picture of what we have available!!!
Happy Day~

For you..

We are home after a week at the Beach, and I miss it already!! However, the memories that we created as a family will forever be in my heart. I was surprised by sweet hand holding, beautiful laughter and best of all mud pies, a way to a mom's heart! I watched my son with Autism become one with the ocean... I think secretly the ocean has Autism. What a news story that would be, talk about raising awareness. The two of them played together in their own worlds and watched over each other so carefully. If you think about it the ocean can be unpredictable, just like a child with Autism, however their worlds I envy, for they show no fear and only see the good. O... but should a change occur, they both rage and have meltdowns and let you know, YOU have disturbed their world. Yes, I believe the ocean has Autism, and how jealous I was watching them play and dance together and not let me join in...but how I thanked GOD in my heart for making the ocean and for giving Trey to me.
Parker, well he made friends with the pool... and that is another thought... the pool is all about FUN!! So thank you GOD for my precious boys and the gifts you have given them.

Stay tuned... Fall items are on there way, and I can't wait to share them with all of you! Please pass our blog and website along to your friends!!! We love friends.

My Son-shines!!!

I am truly amazed at the wonders of GOD. When I think back to when Trey was a baby, and right before we received his Autism diagnosis at the age of 2 1/2, there were limited smiles, minimal laughter, and no words. Now as he plays with his brother, at the age of 6, to see what early intervention, support from teachers, speech therapist,occupational therapist, friends, family, but most of all God's love, we are blessed to see a window of our little boy!! I have never doubted that I was chosen to be his mother, and I cherish every moment. I hope that I can also instill in Parker that he too was chosen to be Trey's brother.

This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!!!
