Ohm Beads Beadmas giveaway Day 6: Trust/Love

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much for sharing your wishes with us! The magic ball (aka random.org) picked Susana Gamarra as the winner of this bead! Please contact me at tracy@blackbootslonglegs.com with your mailing address and I’ll pass it along to Ohm.

I’m thrilled to be part of Ohm’s 12 Days of Beadmas celebration again! This time, I’m helping them give away the Trust/Love bead. This giveaway runs Tuesday, December 6, 2016 from Midnight (12:00:00 AM) until 11:59:59 PM EST. The winner will be randomly selected from the entries and the bead will be directly shipped from Ohm.

I put this combo together as a bit of a “when you wish upon a star” theme. When you make a wish, I feel like you are putting your trust into the universe that your wish will come true. To enter this giveaway, leave a comment telling your Ohmily what you wish for this holiday season. Throw your trust into the universe and see what comes back ;)

I also tried it with a few other beads to highlight the Love side of the bead.

Don’t forget to check the Beadmas schedule to see the rest of the Beadmas fun!

Note: If you don’t see your comment right away, it might have been flagged for moderation (reasons that comments are flagged for moderation often seem random to me.) But, I’ll be checking the moderation folder regularly to make sure that all comments get pushed through. Timestamps are set when you post the comment; even if you post while I am away from my computer, when I release it from moderation it will show the correct time that you first submitted the comment. :)

      I know that the spirit of the holiday season is often overshadowed by materialism; I too succumb to material desires (oh Love Cage, forever you elude me!). However, my dearest wish this year is that my family and loved ones may find some joy and healing amidst the grief we share in suddenly and so tragically losing a truly awesome and cherished heart of our kindred less than a month ago. And though I know there is no rushing the processes of dealing with this kind of devastation and loss, I wish that we can find some comfort in gathering and sharing and being together during the holidays when absences are felt that much more keenly. And to everyone reading this, I wish that all of your loved ones may be healthy and safe and happy together as we ring in a new and better year. Love and joy to you all!

        I’m so sorry for your loss – it’s hard at any time, but at a time when everyone else is celebrating must be extra hard. I hope that you can find that comfort *hugs*.

      My wish this holiday season is that humans everywhere find grace in their lives so they can see it in others too. That we slow down enough in our pursuits to help others with theirs. That we love each other in ways we want to be loved. That we become the #ohmily we should be

      • Tracy

      My wish is that all four of my kids will again have a healthy year and find happiness in what they do. I’ve been blessed with four wonderful children and they make me sad, worried, scared,a few more grey hairs, but they make me proud after all they do. I made a wish once,it came true when I had them.

      • Tracy

      To echo emmalemily’s thoughts, I wish for reconciliation with a once very close family member who has gone astray from us due to unresolved grief and depression. I’ve tried to exhaustion, but I can’t change this person’s mind or behavior, but I can pray for a Christmas miracle that he will accept help and once again want to be a part of our lives, where he is loved so deeply. That’s what I wish for, togetherness, freedom from past hurts, hope for the future and for my family to be close once again.

      • Tracy
        December 6, 2016 | #

        *hugs* I always like to think that love prevails against all else. I hope that you have your reconcilliation. <3

      Les fêtes de fin d’années sont pour moi le meilleur moyen de gâter mes proches. Autant par des cadeaux que par un merveilleux repas. Cette année 2016 a été l’une des pires pour moi, j’ai perdu beaucoup de mes proches et cela a été très dur psychologiquement.
      J’aimerais que pour cette fin d’année, mes proches et tout ceux qui ont été atteint puissent trouvé la paix, faire le deuil et se rappeler seulement des bons moments. Que chacun puisse profiter de la joie dans les yeux de leurs enfants. J’aimerais tellement apaiser leur coeur, et égoïstement le mien aussi.
      J’aimerais que chacun puisse vivre dans la paix dans un monde qui aujourd’hui ne l’est plus, où chacun se méfie de son voisin… si seulement chacun devenait un peu plus humain, le monde se porterait mieux. Je souhaite pour tous de vivre pleinement, et d’être heureux, avec la santé et le bonheur des siens.
      Je vous souhaite de belles fêtes de fin d’année.

      This Christmas, my wish is for there to be no time. I want my family, and especially my 3 little boys to not feel rushed into growing up and leaving childhood too quickly. I want there to be no time limit for feeling like their childhood years were there best years for Christmas. I want them to feel the same unchanging love and joy and excitement into their adulthood. I want us to stop and relax and really see each other, love each other. A truly timeless memory.
