It’s Day 1 of 2019 and the first day since I started my new role as a Women’s Center Director that I’ve posted. I’m not exactly sure how to manage being a wife, mother, Life Coach, author and blogger, but I’ve missed this –– I’ve missed you –– and am determined to get back to writing regularly. I did it consecutively for over a year after all! Recently, a conversation with a dear friend, Valerie, has inspired me to get incorporate servant leadership and social service into the blog, but I’ve yet to work out the details. And of course I still want to feature style and Shabby Chic decor –– like my tree! Now that I’m renting a tiny house for personal and professional use, there are lots of fresh photos to share. Then there’s faith, the foundation of everything I do. Though I’ve been at it for a bit now, I must confess I still feel like a novice/beginning blogger and am somewhat overwhelmed…
This morning’s devotion, however, entitled Something New, spoke to God’s work in our lives and encouraged me: “I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness, I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” – Isaiah 43:19 NLT. How exciting is that! I don’t know what 2019 holds, but it’s so good to know Who holds 2019! Can’t wait to see what He does in my family, my career, my writing –– my life! And yours!
There are days when it’s hard to parent teens, especially when there’s been a divorce. Then there are days like yesterday when it’s a pure joy. A day spent relaxing by the pool and watching a movie with my kiddos reminded me we’re still The Three Musketeers. Wherever you are in your parenting journey –– hang in there and hold on to hope.
Daddy, did I ever tell you you’re my hero? I’ve been missing you 17 years, but want you to know this time I married a man who reminds me of you. Another Superman. Just like you, He’s the best dad a family could have. And like you were, he’s the wind beneath my wings. Thankful my Heavenly Father gave me both of you. And whatever your situation this Father’s Day – He cares for you, too.
Pink Collar Savvy & Chic business cards with the final logo arrived in the mail yesterday and MADE.MY.DAY. Thanks so much to everyone who gave ideas, provided feedback and weighed in on the process. Collaboration is beautiful! If you have an creative and/or business idea, go for it. There’s so much support from other amazing women like you.
