Waiting is Temporary

 

As you know, waiting is temporary. You wait ten minutes to use a restroom, you wait nine months for a baby to grow, you wait years for that perfect job, you wait and wait for that wonderful companion to come along, you wait to see your name in print … life is all about waiting.

Yes, waiting is temporary but that doesn’t make it any easier! For instance, I know I can barely wait until November 14 when this book is out in the hands of women all over the world who are waiting to learn from others and to be even better leaders.  So the photo you see here in this post is beautiful and I love it, but it’s only temporary because I’ll have a brand new one after the launch becomes a reality.

Stay tuned!

Once upon a time, there was a mom …

 

My mom and I
My mom and I

Once upon a time, there was a mom; my mom.  She was beautiful, smart and very hard working.  Under her control and care, one dollar became ten, then twenty, then fifty.  She sewed our clothes, our cushion covers, our curtains.  She cooked meals for her household and for those who had less than we did.  She loved her God and served him diligently in His house.  She willingly shared whatever she had because she knew this act would come back to her in blessings tenfold (if not more). She was a kind soul who left us way too soon.  

But now I am a mother too and my job is to pass on everything she taught me to my own child, so that he in turn can pass the baton on to his children.  It’s great to be a mother when you’ve had such a fine example; thanks mummy – you rock!

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” George Washington

“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” Jessica Lange
