Well, guys….what a week! In the blog’o’sphere I’ve failed miserably. But that’s ok. Sometimes there are more important things in life then writing a lil update. At this point, I’m just happy that I’ve survived the weeks’ events and I’m ready for a good dose of (hopefully) encouraging preaching tomorrow! I’m so glad that even on my worst day, I have joy and strength in knowing the Lord is guiding and taking care of me.

I was reminded of verse (maybe I should keep it my business verse!) Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me and I will answer thee and shew thee great and mighty things thou knowest not. ”  This is a GREAT and ENCOURAGING verse but God requires of us in this verse to call unto Him. How many times during our day do we get frustrated, give up, or get mad at the events that take place. My kids have been driving me BONKERS!!!!!! I would have made the people in Loonyville look normal this week.  When I’m constantly interrupted and can’t get anything finished I get so upset. The Holy Spirit reminds me of two things

1.) Take it to the Lord, not out on the kids and

2.) Remember you are first and foremost a mother and a wife. The rest will get attention after the first two are tended to.

These are both hard to put into action when you have other things you want to be doing.  I just need to remember they will only be this small once. I will never get these moments back! If you have little ones and are trying to run a business from home, there is a balance and we must strive each day to keep our priorities in check.  This is essential to maintaining a great business!

But on an encouraging note I managed to make my first Tastefully Simple Party to Success Goal. I met $1500 in sales and closed 4 parties! To those of you who came to parties, booked parties, or already reordered,  YOU ROCK!!!  Because of you I’ll be receiving 4 party packs, 200 invitations, 50 more catalogs, and 100 order forms. I am now on my way to meeting  my 2nd 40 day goal.  God’s already showing me great and might things! Woot!!  I’ve also advanced to senior consultant by signing up a new consultant! I’m starting to create a great team and would LOVE two more Tastefully Simple team members! Let me know if you would want to jump on board, too!

Well, I hope you all had a productive and enjoyable week! We’ve got one more day before the “official” work day starts again. Whatever your biggest challenges in life are, do not quite. Do not give up. Stay focused.  Be balanced.  Love life.

Tastefully Serving You,
