The past few weeks have been very difficult for our family. I have not been able to focus on very many things - family has come first. Nothing has gotten much of my attention; the business, home life, duties at school, the house or the blog for that matter.
Sometimes life gets in the way of your plans, and sometimes you have to just drop everything and be there for your family members. That is the major perk about being the boss - I get to make family first and damn-it no one gets in my way.
Early yesterday morning my Grandfather passed away. So, unfortunately I am ending this year on a sad note with a loss. I am blessed I was able to know him for so long, and even my children were able have a wonderful relationship with their Great Grandfather.
The last two weeks we have had family members come to visit from all over the country, all the while trying to keep the business running, hug and kiss our children and make sure that Christmas was not canceled. Not sure if I mentioned earlier but both my parents work with me at Jamie's Painting & Design - so it has been a double whammy to say the least.
What the Blog Has Become
It is strange how important this blog has become...well to me anyway. It is more than a "day in the life...blah, blah, look at my cute kids" blog, I find this blog helps me through the good and the bad times, even though I am probably more honest than I should be. I have been told that if I tell everyone all my secrets to success there will be nothing left. Lastly, I am an open book when it comes to some topics, I don't keep much to myself, and no don't worry I am not going again there again.
I will pick back up with the Entrepreneurs when the dust settles, and the relatives (returning once again) have packed up and gone home. I am not sure when I will post again, I am sure it won't be long before I feel the need to dump here, I even have an article sitting here that has me pretty peeved.
"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every moment of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows." - Pope John Paul VI
