Sunny Day!

The Fall & Winter months always tend to bring on a feeling on melancholy for me. But I am thankful for today! It is sunny and my house if FULL of sunlight! Thank you Lord for the sunshine and the warmth I feel when it is bright outside!

My Life ~ Working From Home

Working from home has really given me the opportunity to do some reflection on my life.

If I had continued to work for someone else, then I never would have had the chance to take my son to school and pick him up EVERY DAY since he started school! I would not have been able to share in his excitement when he is picked up and hear his stories of how each day has gone. I would have missed out on all of that! I thank GOD that I am able to be home and share with my family.

When I see other moms that have to go to work every day outside of the home, I feel their pain. I remember how that was. I remember not being able to see my son during waking hours. I remember the weeks of 65+ hours of work during Monday thru Friday. Trying to play "catch-up" on Saturdays and Sundays with my sleep, laundry, time with family and anything else that I missed throughout the week.

One thing that I still have trouble understanding, though. . . When people ask me what I do and I tell them and then, also let them know that I can teach them to do the same thing, they want to stay in their J-O-B. OK. That's fine. I was like that once. I used to depend on a weekly paycheck from some other company. If it is all that you ever knew, then it is difficult to see how you could do anything else. But, I have also found that there are people out there that "get it" and are EXCITED about the opportunity to be able to work from home and create their OWN DESTINY.

You see, I can plan my days around my life. I can do what I feel God calling me to do. That is to help others. I never thought that I would be one of those moms that stayed home and liked it. Funny thing is, I LOVE IT! I wish I had more kids! Ah, well. . . someday, maybe.

For now, I will enjoy my life, my family, and MY JESUS!

Psalm 96 (New Living Translation)

Psalm 96

1 Sing a new song to the Lord!
Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
2 Sing to the Lord; praise his name.
Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.
3 Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.
Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
4 Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
He is to be feared above all gods.
5 The gods of other nations are mere idols,
but the Lord made the heavens!
6 Honor and majesty surround him;
strength and beauty fill his sanctuary.

7 O nations of the world, recognize the Lord;
recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong.
8 Give to the Lord the glory he deserves!
Bring your offering and come into his courts.
9 Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.
Let all the earth tremble before him.
10 Tell all the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.
He will judge all peoples fairly.

11 Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice!
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
12 Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise
13 before the Lord, for he is coming!
He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with justice,
and the nations with his truth.

WHY would you NOT switch products?

WHY would you NOT switch products?

I can show you safer products for your home and family that are sold to you factory direct at wholesale prices AND you will spend LESS than you are spending on "store bought products" that are NOT safe for you!

After 3 years of using the products, I can't help but share this information with people I know and love as well as strangers! When I see how many people I can help AND how much it has helped my family, so it was a NO-BRAINER for me. I love the products and what they have done for my family and I feel that I would be doing my friends a disservice if I did not at least tell them about the products and my families experiences with them.

~ After taking their vitamins, Vitality for Women, for only a month, my Dr took me off of high blood pressure meds and I have not needed them since. That was almost 3 years ago!

~ I quit buying cleaning and laundry products from the grocery store. I replaced everything that I use with their products and my son has not had to have a breathing treatment in the last 3 years.

~ My husband also does not have the problems with his lungs that he used to have every time I cleaned the house.

~ My husband has very difficult hair. Coarse & long. The hair care products are GREAT and they are concentrated so they last longer and you use less.

~ Since taking the kids vitamins, my son doesn't get sick as often as many of his friends.

~ I spilled a whole gallon, yes I said GALLON, of DARK BLUE paint on my tile floor. I was able to clean it up with NO STAINING thanks to Sol-U-Mel. It is by far one of the BEST products I have EVER used!

I could go on and on with examples, but I think you get the picture.

Interested in hearing more OR trying the products?

School Pictures

Yes, it is that time of year again when the kiddies all get to bring home their illustrious portraits that we buy through the school that inevitably has something in disarray. I remember when I was a little girl that I had pictures taken each year at school and I always hated them. They were so blah. I guess that is why I took up photography as a hobby and generally take my son's pictures myself. Well, this year was my son's first real school pictures. He wanted me to comb his hair so that it looked nice and I dressed him a an adorable heavy knit, striped, long sleeve shirt. Perfect for a little boy that is truly the epitome of the "All American Boy".

Living in the Southeast, you can't always determine what the weather will be like. Apparently before it was time for the pictures, my son got hot and decided to take off his shirt and wear only his undershirt. I had told him that he could do this, but to be sure he put on his long sleeved shirt for the photo. Well, I guess he didn't remember that part and he told me on the way home from taking the pictures that he had not worn his long sleeved shirt. Great. I was not too happy with this and really over reacted. Then I realized what an idiot I had been and apologized to my little guy. I felt like such a bad mom. I mean seriously, it is just a picture and if it didn't turn out so good, then I could just have them retaken. Right?

I proceeded to tell my son a little story about one of the school photos that I had when I was little. My mom & dad had left me with family friends so that they could go out of town to attend a funeral. My mom had left explicit instructions on what I was to wear. SO, the morning of the school photos, I got up and got dressed. I had my mom's friend put my hair in pigtails so that I would be "all pretty". Well, little did I know that my mom hated my hair in pigtails because my hair was so baby fine and straggly looking. So when she got back and found out about the hair-do, she was non too pleased.

Well, he got the biggest kick out of my story and he seemed to feel much better. He even told his dad all about our little stories as soon as his dad got home.

So, he just brought the pictures home. I have already decided to keep them no matter what they look like, simply because of the story that he and I now share.
