Oh What a Beautiful Day....

Some days you just have to wake up and be thankful for what you have. Today I have wonderful friends, that understand that I own my own business and try to help out with my son whenever they can. I also mentioned my own business, I am thankful for that. It somehow gives me peace of mind to walk into this store every day knowing that my best is showing right here, and I think that most people that come appreciate that I work hard to keep it as nice as possible. When I bought the store it was a bit run down and not taken care of quite like it should have been. I have worked endless hours to get it to this point and I want so much more for it. I will work as hard as it takes and for as long as it takes to make it a success for myself as well as my customers. Speaking of customers, there is something else that I have to be thankful for, every now and then I will have a day and wonder why I work so hard and why I even bother and almost always when I am having one of those days in will walk a customer that tells me how incredible my store is and that they can't imagine how much work it is and that they are so glad I am here. That is when I remember why I do what I do. That is when I am thankful that I have had this opportunity in my life and that is when I know why I bother. Thanks to all of you for giving me so much to be thankful for. Have a great day and remember "It's Always Worth the Trip" @ Silkweeds

Hey there Lisa! Congrats on the new blog:) It's really a great thing to keep a "journal" of what is going on business wise and lifewise.

Being grateful is so important...keep looking at life that way kiddo!
