I was going to have a contest, (I had some really great designers and artisans ready to give some awesome prizes too) but something wasn’t sitting right with me.
Here is the original premise: I am crazy busy right now. I know others out there have lives just as busy and messy as mine. I wanted to hear about them. I wrote up this whole piece, I arranged prizes, I took pictures…and it sat there in my dashboard. Unpublished. I tried to keep it light-hearted and real – but there was this knot in my stomach. My Grandma, an amazing woman in her 90’s, kept coming to mind. I could hear her saying “We’re just so blessed….”
We are blessed.
We ARE blessed.
WE are blessed.
No matter how light-hearted, humorous, clever or candid I was, that truth was not being portrayed. Yes, life is messy. Life if hectic. I do NOT want to gloss over everything and pretend all is perfect. I want my blog to be REAL. I want it to be a place I can share my successes and my disasters. And I want you to share yours too. Most of all, however, I want you to know that we ARE blessed. You are too. I am certain of it! So go – count your blessings. Here is a picture of three of mine – and that’s just the start!
As far as the contest goes – I’ll come up with a replacement contest soon. For now, I need to go get one of my messy blessings from dance.
