Promises, Promises

I know, I've said it a dozen times before, I will write more blog posts.  Well, what I want to say is that I WILL do just that, but dang, that's a scary idea for me to promise.  But I am working on better follow through this year.  I realize that I allow life to control me rather than me controlling my life.  And I say this knowing I am a complete control freak and I need to learn to let go of control. BUT at the same time, I can't do nothing.

Yes, I know, I'm babbling.

Truth is, once again, I am bouncing back from something awful.  The last half of 2014 was mostly a lot of tears and heartache for me.  Without all the gory details, I'll just say that my youngest child, my only son has done a complete 180 and has left his family out in the cold.  I can't get into the painful details as I just choose not to dwell in that place.

So my life now is all about serving God, my husband, my daughters and their children.  I will be watching 4 of my six grandchildren this year while their mother is in pre-nursing school. I'm looking forward to that, even though I know it is going to take a lot of my time and energy.  It's something I really feel I need to do and truth is, after the bitter slap in the face by my son, I need to feel needed.

My career focus will be on selling what I sew.  I am really praying and hoping to be able to get better about blogging, posting to my facebook page, (From the Sewing Room) sewing and selling.

My goal is to build a better online presence and to build a readership. I know the only way to do that is to become more dedicated to the goal.  So I don't want to make any promises to you, but instead, I want to make a promise to myself.

I promise myself that I will be more dedicated to my goals this year, whatever form that takes.
