I had my first training session in Mary Kay last night and I so enjoyed it. I truly believe I am going to so like this season in my life. I am still in a bit of shock that I am doing this at all because it was never my cup of tea. I had been to many parties for one thing or another, but I never ever felt inclined to become a consultant. I truly feel God has led me to this place in life to be an inspiration to other women and to encourage them to be the best they can be. I have a big heart to minister to women, especially those in need ... single parents ... financially stressed ... carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders ... family issues! I have been through those and then some, so I think I can make their journey a bit more hopeful. We will see where God leads me in this.
I have another Mary Kay event this evening. I have 3 ladies who are going to get free facials. I am excited to be doing this, and I am so looking forward to it. I always said I would never do anything as this because I am simply too tired after work to go and work again. I do not feel that way with Mary Kay. I think that because I so enjoy it, when I get off work I look at it as an enjoyment and not another job. It makes all the difference in the world.
Our dogs are all better and tails are wagging again. I am so happy to see them jumping around. It was a real nightmare. We were not sure if they would survive, but God heard our prayers. These dogs mean so much to my husband, and it would have been a very difficult thing to overcome had it turned out differently. God's hand may be blessing us as a result of this situation, but we will have to wait and see.
My son got his learner's permit. I hate this season in life as it is such a worrisome time. I think the scariest thing I do with my children is put them on the road behind the wheel of a car. I can remember ... as long ago as it was ... when my daughter got her driver's license. It took me some time to relax and trust she would be fine. I did not have God in my life then. I am relying on Him in a big way to bring me peace through this season. I am trusting Him knowing and taking reassurance in the fact that He loves my son more than I do.
Do not even get me going about the increase in our car insurance as a result of adding my son to our policy. My gosh ... I thought I would fall over! It has more than doubled. I always heard it was more for a boy than a girl. I do not remember what it was for my daughter, but we survived her so we will survive this also.
Time to wrap it up and get ready for work. Today is Friday and I have a busy weekend ahead. Looking forward to having Monday off also! I will be chatting with you soon!
