It has been a while since my last post. My intention has been to post a couple times a week but life does not always allow that. Last week was a busy one. A few minor health issues or what I call "a little hiccup in the scheme of things". All is o.k and I am still smiling (hehe).
A lot of you have read my previous posts about the FDA globalization Act of 2008. While it has not been put into place, I have felt that I need to make a change. I remember many years ago when I worked for Clinique. When I started with them, ingredients were not even listed on products. No one thought that would ever become mandatory. Now it is difficult to find anyone who remembers life before ingredient listing. I have been listening to the voice inside. You know, the one you hear when you are quiet and receptive. That voice has been telling me for a while that The French Elements needs to evolve and it is evolving as we speak. I guess I needed to have a health set back to really listen and act on what was being revealed to me.
I won't go into the details here but you can read Our story on the new website. Change can be scary, but I know this is a change that I am supposed to make. The look has changed( you rock Cathy), the focus has changed and I could not be happier. It will take some time to get everything up and running.
Right now, only the policies and Our story pages are finished. I hope to have it completed by the end of next week. But if not, I am not stressing about it. Life is way too short!
Yesterday was a long one but look what came in the mail to truly make my day. Sherry had
several giveaways and I was one of the lucky winners. When I came in last night and saw the box, I was so excited. When I opened it up, oh my goodness. The picture doesn't do it justice (shaky hands-hehe). The giveaway was this beautiful cup and saucer but Sherry included the makings of my very own tea party. Miss Hailey may be over this weekend and I intend to have a tea party with her. We will be using everything! The vintage spoon and butter knife will be put to good use. The variety of teas and the cookies-oh yes. This will be a fun party.
Thank you so much Sherry. I love everything and will think of you every time I use my beautiful cup and saucer. You brightened my day!
I also wanted to ask for some extra prayers and good thoughts for both my son and my darling mother-in law. You know about my son's health problems. Please hold him up in prayer.
My dear Mother-in-law has been diagnosed with stage4 ovarian cancer. She is young, only 75.
She is undergoing chemo but it is taking a toll. Please remember her in prayer.
Well, I have rambled on long enough. I am hoping to get around to visit everyone this week. If I don't make it around, know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Many hugs to each of you.
