I did it!

Happy Friday! I am back up and running! Thank you to all of my new followers :) I am going to post my original plan of posting even though I left it in my discussion tab already enjoy...

Claire's Bowtique I recieve this from a friend and I had to share it with you all :) I needed to hear this especially on a morning like this one ♥ I would love to hear your comments!

One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said,
"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable
and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will do everything
with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I won't, " the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed,
"but I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied,
"Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something,
and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak,"
the Lord corrected,
"that's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed..
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness,
love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give


PLEASE pass this along to your women friends and relatives
to remind them just how amazing they are.

So I am trying out this blog this lol. I can talk for hours to anyone so I figured this would be a fantastic way to "talk" to you all at once. I guess in my first blog I would like to talk a little about myself and what I do :) I am a work from home mommy to four, I have a wonderful husband who does more for me than I could ever even try to explain. My boys are 7, 5, and 3 and my daughter is 14 months :) They are growing up so fast! I started Claire's Bowtique by making bows for my baby girl and it grew onto ebay and then to etsy and now to facebook! It is amazing how many people I have gotten the opportunity to meet and work with. I love it! I am so happy I found my niche ;) During the week I care for 3 wonderful children who are 5, 2, and 8 months. I am a one busy momma! The life I choose is what I always wanted though, maybe its werid but when I was a little girl I dreamed of being a mommy and nothing else. I have always felt like this is what I am here to do, to mother, to care for, and to be needed. Maybe someday when the kids are older I will find my place in the working world but for now this is me and I love it! :) So that is my short and sweet first blog <3 Hope you enjoyed it lol.
