When Life Gives You Lemons....CELEBRATE!!!
... you know what I'm talking about... the face that looks like you just licked a lemon, but you don't want anyone to notice the sour-party going on in your mouth??
I don't find "faking" a smile as easy at it used to be and I tend to lose my creative drive when my heart is heavy. I will not bore you with the details, but I am feeling a mix of emotions and feelings about some things that are changing...and I have no control or say over the matter. I am hopeful that something good will come of this...at least that is what I keep telling myself. I have come to an understanding that life continues to teach me more about myself and I know that there is purpose for the storms we all walk through... there just has to be -by GOLLY!
To top it off, I hurt my knee pretty bad at the end of last week... but my knee seems to be right with the program, because it continues to get better and better everyday... it is everything else that seems to be dragging. I am in a place in my life where I will have to completely and wholeheartedly rely on God. Seems like such a simple task; however, maybe not so much when the storm is rolling!! Just when I thought that I was going to literally break down in tears today I got a phone call from a friend who filled me with hope at the moment I needed it the most!! God's timing is everything... Can I get an AMEN?? I'd even settle for a loud, WOOT WOOT!! haha
While the storm is brewing and my knee improving, I have taken the time to get excited about Etsy's DIGITAL FILE storage!! It is about time!!! I was able to upload every file, except the math bundles (which were just too large), but I am relieved that buyers will not have to twiddle their thumbs while they wait for their files. This was the biggest drawback of havng an Etsy store, but I saddled up any way....tough times call for bigger commitments...right?? I was more than excited to see this feature integrated....and without any extra fees... as of yet (fingers crossed)
I uploaded over 100 files....YEAH me!! To celebrate, I am offering a huge discount on all of my digital files at my Etsy shop! I guess you can say that Teacher Appreciation came a little early..hahaha...
Thank you for all of your help and support & I hope that your week is a bit less stormy than mine... It is a good thing that we all don't go through a storm at the exact same moment because friends can be a giant umbrella & I am thankful and blessed that I have so many caring friends...and from all over the world! You all are so incredibly wonderful!! Click the banner below to visit my Etsy shop!!
