Yesterday, we were in the big city to do a bit of buying. It was freezing cold, but we were excited and got it done.
It was fun to see Lindsay and Emily blossoming and on this our fourth trip (we tagged a long the other times with our friend Denny) they showed that they have a good eye for details. We found a few new styles of handbags which we are excited about, and some really awesome sterling silver necklace and earring sets!
On these trips we also have to buy packaging materials, boxes this time for earrings and necklaces. Lots of details to think of.
Tim and Denny were with us and Denny was very encouraging to us that we did well, and everything is going to sell! That is key, you know!
I have a thankful heart this morning.
Thankful for a husband who desires for us to work together and to grow. Also thankful that he has been wise with our finances.
Thankful for a friend and brother in Denny. He has truly walked us through this process.
Thankful for Lindsay and Emily who know how to work hard, and are excited for this opportunity to be entrepreneurial.
Thankful for the Lord using this opportunity to stretch us - I now know why He lead me to step down from our homeschool co-op leadership.
Thankful for my parents encouragement and practical help with sleepovers for the younger set when we go on buying trips!
I never dreamed of owning a handbag, jewelry and ladies accessories store, but I did dream of a family business. The Lord has been so good to us, and I am looking forward to all He has for us in this opportunity.
What are you thankful for today?
