Just A Little Thought

Somethings happened recently that have really made me stop and think about how the Lord is really mindful of our situation... I don't want to sound vague, but I don't want to say a lot right now either because I am not quite sure about some stuff. I just want to put it out there that I am grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who knows what we need sometimes even before we do. I know that sometimes in this life we are given difficult situations and put in circumstances that we never dreamed of, but I know that if we are patient and if we strive to do the best we can that all will be made right. Not necessarily in the way we think it should be, but it will be okay. I think the important thing for me to remember is that sometimes there are reasons for things that I can't comprehend and if I will follow Him and put my trust in Him then I will be okay. But I can't expect the Lord to give me what I want if I am not willing to do what he asks.

Texas and MK

Last Monday I left with some ladies around 9pm. We were headed to Texas and I really had no idea what to expect. I knew I was going to a seminar for Mary Kay, but I was not expecting what I got. We had a 20 HOUR drive to Dallas. This was a great drive, I had so much fun getting to know the 4 other ladies I was with. When we got there it was about 6pm Texas time the next day and we were able to relax in the pool and spa for awhile. We also played a little "Hands up Stands up". Lots of fun, but I was forbidden to post any pictures :) Dallas was humid and hot, luckily our hotel was only 2 blocks away from the convention center. I absolutely loved what I learned in those few days. I am really excited and very thankful to be working with a company that was not only founded on the Golden Rule, but preaches that we run our business that way. They open their meetings with a prayer and are are so quick to remember that it is through God that our blessings come. WOW. I was blown away by the "Go Give" attitude that everyone shared and the positive attitudes of everyone I met. I hope this doesn't sound like a recruitment blog, I just honestly didn't expect a company to be this awesome. during the time that we were there they raised over 40 million dollars to fund against domestic violence and research in women's cancers and that was just one seminar. There are 4 more after we left. Also the potential that I saw to be able to move up in Mary Kay was awesome and it is up to me where and how high I want to go. Yay!
Anyway, I had a blast and have set some goals for this coming year. click on the collage above and see what I am working towards now. Hello Mustang :) but of course I will take the Pink Caddy if I hit that!
There is a cute pic of Jer and the kids in there too. I took that right before I left so that I could look at it all week. love, love, love them and am so thankful for their support.
