My 7 days of THANKS countdown - #5!

Happy Saturday morning blog readers! :)

I would say that its very appropriate of me to choose Close To My Heart as the thing I am most thankful for as we continue to count down my Thankfuls this week. Here's why...

Today is the big day of my yearly craft booth that I do at my daughters school and I have attached just a couple of pictures of the things I made. :) Each year I have high hopes for the next that I will get something done and have an AMAZING booth. Well, this year is no different...I was scramblin' at the last minute to get stuff made and while I don't have a lot to sell I'm just so glad to have the booth from year to year because it's a great lead generator for me when it comes to my business. (As for items to sell...well...lets just say that I'm such a PROcrastinator again this year! LOL)

Close To My Heart is such a WONDERFUL part of my life. Looking back to when I first started in this business I really didn't know what I was getting myself into or what I really needed in my life but over the past 8 years I've had a lot of time to reflect and ponder this business and what it has meant to me. I'm just so glad that I made the decision to became a part of this wonderful, WONDERFUL family. :)

Close To My Heart has...
  • Helped me to become more outgoing
  • Helped me to have more confidence in my abilities
  • Helped me to make new friends that genuinely care about me :)
  • Helped me to contribute to my family's income
  • Helped me to be innovative and creative
  • Given me the ability to set my own hours
  • Given me the honor of empowering my team of incredible women to new heights
  • Given me the opportunity to travel to places I never dreamed of going
  • ...and the list goes on and on! :)
Close To My Heart has been such a huge blessing in my life and the others around me and I hope it continues for many years to come because I love it so much! :) This business really does touch hearts and change lives...and isn't that what life should really be all about?
