I changed as a blogger and shop owner and daughter-in-law this week. As many of you know my family had an emergency to deal with and while I was not the one in the ambulance, I was driving behind it. In a matter of moments, my life turned topsy-turvy and I hit the wall. I came face to face with the sign that says:
Go Live In The Moment—It’s All We Are Ever Guaranteed.
All of a sudden I, along with LTD 7, and the rest of my family was in triage mode. I had to decide, often moment by moment, what I could and could not get done. Many things fell by the wayside and if you missed the daily LTD 7 Flash Sale one day this week and LTD’s Thursday night’s Facebook Sale, I am so sorry. There was only so much I could do, before I fell, literally flat on my face.
The storm has passed now and things are in recovery mode. That brings a new set of challenges, but I at least have a chance to breathe and regroup, somewhat.
I want to extend HUGE and special virtual hugs and thanks to the amazing staff of LTD 7 who pulled together and circled the wagon and kept the store running so smoothly. I am so grateful for your care and concern for me, not to mention your expertise at work! I couldn’t do all that I do, without you.
I want to also thank my family and friends for helping me, above and beyond the call of duty and for their many prayers and assistance. Again, I could not have gotten through this it without the gift of you. I wish I could bottle up all of your love and blessings and assistance and save it for “rainy days.”
I saw this picture a few weeks ago and for some reason, that I didn’t know at the time, I saved it. I loved the idea of bottling joy to last the whole year long.
I could have used a case of joy this week. Thank you for sharing some of yours. It meant the world to me.
As you go about your chores and meetings and rehearsals and shopping this week, I truly hope the spirit of joy is in your heart. Hug your loved ones tighter, remember the reason for the season and smile at a stranger. You just might be the best thing that happens to them all day.
Living the Dream,
