Let us be thankful

Obviously it's been a while since I posted here. Snow is on the ground... and this morning it was -17 C. Inside we are staying fairly warm... keeping our furnace temp to 14-16 C so our electricity bill is lower. We are so thankful and blessed.

My Morning

It froze pretty hard last night (-7 C) and everything was covered with frost this morning. We're supposed to get some flurries today, but so far it's blue skies and no clouds with beautiful sunshine.  
This morning I'd sat on the kitchen floor while eating my breakfast and the kids congregated around me... after playing for a bit I did special time for each of them, encouraging the others to join in and help me be nice and gentle to each one.  They all wanted to have 2 turns, but I had to feed Tabitha again and when I got done the boys were playing happily in their room, so I didn't disturb them.

Are you lifting or are you knocking?

You know what's heartbreaking?
When a woman takes on something that can better her family and she receives zero support from her family and friends.
Do you know how much courage it takes for a woman to decide to take on an additional thing in her life? To actually better her family. Whether it be Plexus, Younique, Pampered Chef, or any business or other part time endeavor?
I have heard way to many times. How their spouse, friends or family have laughed at them. When they receive a commission of $15. They say what's $15 going to buy? Well it could buy a carton of milk, bread, cheese, and fruit which will feed her family. Or... $15 a month for 4 months could pay for a haircut she's bypassed for years because she can't afford it.
I bet you have no idea how amazing she felt when she received her very first commission of let's say $15. Don't take that feeling away from her. Support her. Give her props. Tell her "Nice job" but don't tear her down.
So if you're a friend, a spouse, a sibling, a parent, a neighbor, or an acquaintance of someone you know who owns a small business, send them a message RIGHT NOW and tell them how proud you are of them and really lift them! Right now is the best time! Just do it!
