How has your new year treating you? I wish the best for each of you. So many are going through so much right now. Us included. Seems that everything comes to a halt after New Year's. Like, a SCREECHING halt. Everyone is in a financial coma from all of their holiday spending. Maybe they are ill. It could be a lot of different things. One thing I do know is that God always comes through no matter what. It may not be when you want it too and you lose patience. You feel like there is no hope. But there is.
We are trying to get back into the groove with school and housekeeping etc. My daughter likes to draw and oh my goodness there is a ton of drawings everywhere. She's pretty good so it's extremely hard to pick which ones to throw out. There must be another way. What do you do?
I'm working on my Lilla Rose business and taking different trainings to better improve my business. It's really fun. I hope you will be able to experience it too someday. Stay tuned for a special announcement on Friday. You won't want to miss it.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We really enjoyed our break. During that time I always reflect on the year and I get sad sometimes. Why didn't I do this or that? Why did I choose to do this? Why did I choose not too? A lot of whys. My children will be another year older. So will I. So will my husband. My anxiety usually comes back at this time of year too. Work slows down and I go into a panic because we still have bills to pay. We can't really save up for a vacation like most people do and get to spend time with family. Then I decided to just STOP!!! How was I benefiting anyone by doing this to myself?
One thing I did was GET BUSY with something. About 5 months ago I started my own business. It was slow going so I began thinking of ways to make it more profitable. I also began to declutter the books and sell the ones we weren't using anymore. Then I had some extra money to expand my business or better something. If there's clothes or toys that are still in decent shape, SELL IT!!! It might not be a ton of money but it's better than it just sitting around collecting dust, RIGHT? Same with homeschooling too. If the curriculum you bought at the beginning of the school year isn't working anymore, SELL IT and find something that does. You can use eBay, facebook groups or local homeschooling groups. Someone might be looking for that very book or teacher's guide and couldn't afford it new. You're helping them and yourself. It's a wonderful feeling. Try it!!
