Feels like things are going at warp speed these days, despite the “lazy” days of summer. I think I’m trying to compensate for what is coming. Truth be told I’m dreading August 22nd when we pack up the car and the little girl I fell in love with 18 years ago goes off the school. It seems like it was yesterday she was smelling the tulips, sitting with me on the porch swing, fawning over her baby brothers, all the things. I’m keeping myself busy and trying to occupy my mind with other things.
Yes, she’ll be close to home but home life will never be the same as it is right now. It is forever changed for me no matter what anyone says. Vacations won’t align again for a long time, she won’t crawl into her bed every night. I won’t get to sit in the kitchen and chat til all hours, take care of her when she’s not feeling well. The friends I’ll only see when she’s home, the afternoons of laughter and clothes, shoes and cars everywhere. Life is just that way it moves on even if we don’t want to. I see those mama’s with little ones and my heart aches for those days, they go way too fast.
If you could keep me in your prayers it would mean a lot. I will need them. And pray for her too, that our heavenly father watches over her. Ok, now that I’m crying I have something fun to share!
I know a lot of you make not be an oils people (yet) but I am working super hard on reaching a goal by the end of the year! So any of my non-oily friends if you refer any friend or family member to my Young Living business and they purchase a Premium Starter kit and let me know that you referred them I will send you a Starbucks gift card for $25! It’s a win/win! My number is #3995898.
I know personally, I have family that really wanted to get into the oils and some who just aren’t there yet. I’d be so grateful for anyone you send my way.
Have a wonderful weekend. I’m in the middle of a big purge over here (keeping busy). See you soon. xo
