“To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.’
~Johannes A. Gaertner
It’s almost the weekend y’all! It’s almost the end of the month too. I can’t say that I’m going to be said to see February go because this has not been the best month for me and my family. However, as the song says, “I won’t complain.”
I’m thankful to blessed enough to still be among the living. And while I am sick (again), I am thankful to otherwise be in good health. The kids are better with the exception that Moo is now battling allergies. She’s sneezing her head off and has a runny nose that just won’t quit. No wheezing yet, which is always a great thing because it means her asthma is getting better and her lungs are getting stronger!
I’m thankful that Moo’s Closet has been getting so much love. I’ve been posting pictures of my creations on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. In fact, this week I’m hand delivering a few baby pieces I made and excited to for the mom to see them and to see them on the baby. I’ll also be applying for a booth at my first arts & crafts festival as a vendor.
The festival is in April. So, I have time to make plenty of items like blankets, dresses, baby booties and even little stuffed animals. I’m also taking it step further and looking into getting some custom tags made to sew into everything. I’m nervous but I keep telling myself that this going to be great and I know in my heart that it is. My ultimate goal is to make enough money off Moo’s Closet at the festival and via online sales to get a little mobile boutique up a running.
I’d love to load up the kids and travel from festival to festival selling my goods and maybe even get some of my one of a kind pieces in a few consignment shops or specialty boutiques. It feels good that to really be excited about this and have supporters who believe in me as well. This another piece of my legacy that I can leave behind for my children. And that makes my heart smile.
What are you thankful for?
