|yeah I know it's bad -|
All of this with Stephanie has really shook me up. I think of her when I get up in the morning and during the day. I think of her 2 little girls, and her sweet husband. On Sunday, we attended her birthday party. What do you get someone who only has 3-4 months to live? It was the hardest thing to go to but I'm glad we did. I am witnessing so much generosity from our community - her friends and people she doesn't even know. I just feel I need to do more - for her family.
I have decided to hold a Barefoot Books fundraiser. I haven't even started selling yet...so it is like a launch for me as well, but in a way, I don't care if I get any future business. I just want to be able to do a little something and provide some really neat children's books for her girls. Not to mention it is getting me, to step out of my comfort zone. I may fall flat on my face - but I want to try. This is my motivation - and I am one, who needs major motivation and a goal.
Yesterday I launched a new website for this book business, that will be tied directly to the Barefoot books marketplace under my name. It still needs tweaking - I had a blast building it yesterday. I love being creative!
Go take a peak and be gentle.
