New Beginnings

New Beginnings

I’ve let my poor blog go by the wayside in the midst of lots of happenings in our family and home.  Many things changed in the last year, we lost loved ones, and life was hectic.  Things are finally slowing down as the snow settles over our small part of the Earth.  My racing mind is finally slowing down too, and I can get back to the things I enjoy that help keep me centered.  I’m so happy to be back!  I’m really looking forward to creating new things and reopening my Etsy shop soon, and hopefully I’ll be back to selling Thrive full-time soon too.  It can be a lot of work, but they’re things I’m passionate about, and I wouldn’t give them up permanently for anything.  It’s hard to imagine that I put my Etsy shop on “vacation” mode in August!  That’s too long without creating anything!

My first goals are to write and schedule some blog content for all of you fine folks to read, create some new and exciting things for my Etsy shop, and organize, clean and paint my new office/craft room.  I’ve got so many ideas bouncing around in my head I’m not sure where to start!  We will get a new start starting January 1st, so put that on your calendars and BE READY!

Thank you for being here, thank you for following along on my journey.  I’m beyond humbled and I am so grateful for you and your friendship!

Difficult Couple Weeks

What a very difficult couple of weeks it has been for my (very large and extended) family.

September 11th is hard for everyone in our country, but that’s also the sad anniversary of when we lost my grandma.  I know everyone says this about their grandma, but MY grandma was the salt of the Earth.  Truly, no better person in the world.  She was everyone’s “Grandma” and everyone’s “Mom” and nobody left her house hungry and without their cheeks hurting from laughing and smiling too much.  She gave the best hugs, she always smelled fresh, and her skin always felt soft.  It’s funny when someone is gone, the things that you remember and treasure about them.

September wasn’t done with my family though.  We lost my uncle Dwayne this year.  This guy was so full of life and happiness.  Always smiling and laughing.  Always trying to get the family together to do things.  Always the first one to hug you when you walked in the door, and the one who would chat your ear off to get you to stay an extra hour! He was an amazing soul who is gone too soon.  Way too soon, only 50 years old.  Proof that massive heart attacks can strike anyone at any time.

It was nice to see my family, it doesn’t happen often enough and I miss them all terribly.  I just wish it had been on better terms.  I wish they were ALL there, and I wish we weren’t missing such big parts of our hearts.

Please pray for his wife.  They had only been married a short time when this happened, and it hurts my heart to think of her loss and pain.  Please pray for his children and grandchildren, who lost their dad and grandpa way too soon.  And pray for his brothers because the 5 of them were so close.
