Hi everyone! I know the blog has been light on content these past 10 days, I’m sorry! I have gotten so behind on my business projects and on life in general. My goal this week is to slowly make my way back to a “normal” schedule for our family (although nothing is ever really normal!) There have been two deaths in my family in the past month, both of which called for some unplanned travel and family grieving time. Sandwiched in between those two events, my husband and I snuck away for an overnight to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The baby became a 2 year old in early April, and he’s doing all of those things that are developmentally appropriate (like making his wants and needs very clearly known to everyone), but also pretty annoying. Then there was Easter and some last minute changes to our celebration plans, also school, soccer games, extra church events . . . You get the picture I’m starting to feel a little crazy. I’m pretty type A, and I like to have my weeks go by in an orderly manner where I make regular progress on my responsibilities both at my home and business. I will readily admit I am not very good at going with the flow. But we’re in that season, and so I am asking for extra grace to just be in the moment and focus on what God has for me today.
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalm 118:24
There are only so many hours in the day, time is finite. No matter how badly I may want more time to accomplish more things, I have to be realistic about what can be done today. Each day is a gift and is intended to fulfill a specific purpose. There is gladness and peace in knowing that.
Thankfully, business at my booth has picked up since March and things are steadily marching out the door. That does mean though that I have to be more on top of getting my new inventory ready. I’m about 75% finished with another dining table and chair set. The weather cooperated this weekend and I was able to sneak in a few hours of furniture painting. I think maybe by Wednesday or Thursday I can be finished with this set. So stay tuned for more pictures! I’m trying out a new paint, and will also be able to share more about how it works. So thank you for all of your patience while I’m behind. More great things are coming, just at a little slower pace. I hope you all are finding your purpose in today.
