I have so much I want to write about. God has really given me some awesome ideas but time is not as readily available as I would like it to be. I am going to try to set aside some time this weekend just to write. I have such a passion for it, and it is the one thing I have the least time for.
Having a surprise birthday party for my son this weekend. Nothing special ... just cake and ice cream with family and some friends. He will be 19! WOW! He works full time now and drives so I do not get to see much of him these days. Before you know it, he will be starting his 2nd year of college. He is becoming more and more independent but I am so very proud of him. I miss our time together, but I am a joyous parent watching him grow and make mature decisions about life. May God continue to pour into him as He has done thus far.
Hopefully my daughter and her family will be able to join us this weekend. I definitely do not get to spend much time with her or my grown grandchildren. It is sad! I miss them all so much!
My granddaughter went fishing with my husband this morning. They left early this morning for an 2 hour trip, and I hope they have a good day. She will be visiting with us until Sunday and she is joining me this evening when I host in-house facials. I know she will so enjoy it as all young girls love make up. I will have fun doing this with her. Stay tuned for pictures!
I have been doing a temp job full time for the past few weeks, but I think it is coming to an end. I have so enjoyed working with ex-co-workers. It has felt sort of like old times. I miss the little work crew we had, but I am glad God opened up this door for me to join them again if only for a short period of time. I love my Mary Kay business, but I forgot how much I enjoyed working out in the public also. Please keep in prayer the lady who I am filling in for right now ... she lost her husband. I was shocked to realize yesterday that I know the family of her husband well. We practically grew up together, and some members of this family are very dear to my heart. What a small world!
I have a Mary Kay customer who has also lost her father this week. My heart so hurts for these individuals as I know their pain. It is very difficult to lose a parent at any time, but when it is your last parent, it is doubly hard. I so miss my mom and dad so much. I think of them often, but I smile when I bring them to memory. I relish the fact that they are no longer suffering, and I have plenty of good memories to cherish until we meet again.
Ok, I have shared about all I have and it is time for me to get up. I have a lot to get accomplished today. I pray you all have a wonderfully blessed day! Count your blessings today and do not take any thing or any person for granted. Today may be the last day you can relish many things!
