Yesterday as I was completing the preparation to ship out orders that had been placed I realized that I had reached my 100th sale! Happy Dance indeed over this milestone! It has been almost two years ago that I started filling out all of the information to start My Shining Lights shop on Etsy. And then a few months after filling out the information I actually started listing items in my shop which would have been in October of 2008. For some reason reaching 100 sales has been a goal that I have been dreaming of this whole time. I am so thankful for God's provision in my life! Thankful too, that I am able to go to work at the hours I am able and that my work is something that I love doing. I want to thank my customers too as you ultimately are the ones responsible for this milestone.
I hope that your day is a lovely one! I will put a photo of some of the newest items in my shop with this blog entry. And I would like to invite you to stop by the shop for a visit to see what is new and if there is something that you love. As I mail out each package I think of my customers and hope that the item I am sending them will help to add joy to their day.
I'm a daughter, sister, wife, and mother of three, also a mother- in- "love" to two lovely young women, and grandmother. And I am excited to announce a new son-in-"love". We just celebrated our daughters wedding! I love to write. I dearly love God and am amazed that I can barely understand how much he truly loves me. I hope to be a compassionate person that tries to be a help to others. I have many health difficulties, such as Fibromyalgia, Arnold Chiari Malformation (which I have had surgery to decompress the malformation) and Sjogren's. I want to be known as a person who loves others, who tries to be kind, who has a deep faith in God, who is just so totally in love with my family, and did I mention my beautiful grandsons? I want to be more than a label of chronic illnesses, but even though that is a difficult part of my life, I also want to be a listening ear, or empathetic heart, to others who suffer from these same difficulties. Well, that pretty much sums up me!
