Ups & Downs

"Never regret a day in your life. Good days give you Happiness. Bad days give you Experiences. Both are essential to life. Keep going...Happiness keeps you Sweet, Trials keep you Strong, Sorrows keep you Human, Failures keeps you Humble, Success keeps You Glowing, But Only God keeps You Going!

I re-read the poetry above again today and it soo fit the day.

I spent the day in the shop with my sis Ter and dear friend Tina all of us very enjoyably creating, Ter creating floral arrangements, Tina painting our new store sign, and me planting new pots of flowers and hanging up new consignment items. That was the happiness part of our day.

Later in the day a friend came in to cry on my shoulder and share some sad news she had received over the weekend last. I prayed for her when she left, a prayer for peace. That was the sorrowful part of the day.

A young couple returned to the store this evening, they have been in several times lately shopping, turning a bachelor pad into a twosome hangout. Nice young couple, much fun to share and talk with. What fun. So nice to be able to visit with folks like that.

Today was such an up and down kind of day. Kinda helped me feel that I have truly found my place and that the shop gives not only me pleasure and comfort but it gives the same to others as well.
Amazing what God can use as a tool for his kingdom isnt it???
