Thankful for the Large Life

A comment one of you wrote on my last blog caught my attention and made me smile.  “Wow!” it read. “You sure do live a large life.” That made me stop and think.
 
I do love my life, and it is a lot of fun. But as I look back at my last few posts, I hope it doesn’t sound like all I do is party! While I believe you can make your life a party with a positive attitude, I actually do work—honest!
 
I can’t remember the last time I went on a family vacation or anywhere else that I didn’t pack plenty of work. Most of my traveling is work-related. There are always phone calls to be made, material to read, decisions to make, research to do, projects to work on. . . the list goes on and on. I don’t write about a lot of that because it’s not very exciting. And some of it I couldn’t talk about if I wanted to . . . . new products, upcoming announcements, and that type of confidential stuff.
 
Of course, I’m not complaining! Along with the workload, hectic schedule, and responsibilities, there are incredible benefits that come with owning a company. Many of you who are working to build your Stampin’ Up! businesses understand that.
 
It makes sense that I talk about the fun more than the work, don’t you think? The family gatherings and social events are the things I want recorded on my blog, which is the closest thing to a journal that I have. But I certainly don’t mind doing the work! I hope you all know I love what I do, so even going to work is a party on most days!
 
I am so thankful for the life I have, and the wonderful people who are in it—including each of you! And I know how blessed I am. I thank my Heavenly Father every day and work hard to share and serve others.
 
Now having said that, I am leaving again! (smile) It’s been more than a year since I’ve been on a ride with Sterling. (And by that, if you’ve read my previous blogs, you know that Sterling rides and I accompany.) We’re leaving to go camping today. I’m excited to be with him as much as possible—and I’m looking forward to tackling the pile of work I’ve packed when he saddles up and rides off!
