Missing in Action

My toothbrush has gone missing and I think I know where it is.
Someone took the ‘plug thingy’ out of the sink in the bathroom and there’s a good chance that my beloved toothbrush ended up in there.
I also think that I know who the culprit is. Of course I have no proof but there’s a certain someone in this household who is known for letting items disappear through the bathroom sink and there’s a good chance that she has been busy again.
I haven’t seen it for 3 days now and don’t expect to see it again and if I do, I doubt it will be usable.
Does this mean that I haven’t been brushing my teeth lately? Correct. I haven’t brushed them. Just for the idea probably I used my finger and a whole lot of toothpaste.
But since in the activity of tooth brushing there is an actual brush involved I haven’t really been tooth brushing, no.
So it’s really time to get a new toothbrush now.
I can’t believe that I have to buy another toothbrush again. My last one had disappeared as well and then I purc…

Beauty Always

It's five minute froday again. Here's another try. We're writing about beauty.

Go
She was born with beautiful skin, a beautiful creation by God. But she must’ve been two/three months old when her skin started to change. She cried and scratched her face. We put her tiny hands in socks. It was heart breaking to see her cry. Nothing we could do.
Now 6 years later, we’ve passed the nights of waking up crying and scratching. She has used so many creams that her skin has become thin because of it.
And lately her skin is getting worse. We’re considering to relocate so she can have better medical care.
Her skin might still be in poor health but her beauty inside will always remain and one day I’m sure God will give her a beautiful skin again because there is nothing that He cannot do !
Stop





Yesterday I talked to my mother on skype. She said that she was worried about Ixora but that we need to keep believing and yes we will.
Gods grace is sufficient. It’s all in His hands and …

No longer an employee

Yesterday I sent a resignation letter to my employer. This means that I will not be returning to work in September as I originally planned.
After I sent the letter I sent messages to two people whom I want to purchase things from for Nevaeh-Divine. LOL
I barely have any money coming in, but I believe that God will provide. Because He promised that He will.
I’m not sure what’s next but I know that it’s going to be good.
We’re thinking of moving back to the Netherlands for a while and so I’m probably going to work again next year.
I’ve seen an advertisement from the same company I work for but than in the Netherlands so I might apply but I don’t want to start straight away.
And we’ll have to look for a house but there are two houses from family which could be an option.
We don’t really want to leave here but there is probably better medical care for Ixora and there are a few other pluses like I can finally try to finish my law study, as my father would’ve liked me to do.
Even though he…

Car boot sale

I have a baby bath on wheels! Yay!
After hearing from a couple of people how busy the car boot sale at the Tallaght Stadium is, hubby and I decided to give it a go last Saturday.
I had put together a few things which we no longer need and also took some Avon stock with me.
We arrived there before 8 o’clock and there were already people roaming around in search for bargains. They came straight to our car after we parked it, curious to know what we had to offer.
I hardly got the chance to unpack. It was really a bit crazy and funny.
Later on it was less busy. It lasted until 1 pm which was a quite a long time and I must admit that it is quite busy and even though we didn’t sell a lot, it was much more than I ever did. We must’ve sold about 65 euro.
I also got a few representative leads, which is why I started doing markets at the first place.
We sold more AVON than our own stuff.
Especially the perfumes and the fragranced deodorant rollers went quite well and then some other things l…

He makes me Whole

It's been a while but today I decided to join The Gypsy Mama again, writing for five minutes without editing, just whatever comes up.

Today we're writing about ; Whole.

Here it goes.

Whole

Is a word which immediately makes me think of God as there is nothing and no one in the world that can make me whole the way He can.
He is my creator, He knows me deep within. He knows my flaws, my weaknesses and my strengths. He knows what to do to make me complete, to make me grow and excell above my own expectations.
By trusting Him and allowing Him to lead me always, I become that complete person, whom He has destined me to be.
I am apart of Him. He breathes His life in to me, moulding me each time to look more like Him. He is the gentle Friend, the Lover of my soul, the One who makes me whole.
He knows just what I need and will never stop to heal me, to deliver me, to nourish my soul.

Stop.

Would you like to join too ?

Trying to find the balance

So I think it’s time for an update. After writing the last post my next thought was: I just need to have a better balance.
For some reason the nanny thing never worked out and I’ve given up on it for now. But we still have a cleaning lady who comes to clean now and then,(once a week or every other week) but she is on a holiday at the moment.
And I’ve decided to put family first as much as possible. So now I have days where I do nothing for my business or almost nothing, especially the weekends and then Tuesday and Friday as little as possible. `I can't say that it works perfectly but it is starting to work a bit better.
I still appreciate having a home business as you can choose your own hours and you are your own boss. You can put in as much or as little effort as you like and you can put your family first.
Now when a rep calls on Friday and asks if I can go by on Saturday, I say No but I can come on Monday. I think this is really an improvement. I don’t feel consumed by my busi…
