I Didn’t See It Coming

This is the beginning of busy. The week before last  at the nursing home,  I hosted a TN/AL Divided House Party. Last week was the Halloween Party. This week is Halloween and I am preparing for our Women of Covenant weekend. I had to work both Saturday and Sunday and today the body and mind shut down. My BP was 188/110 and the nurses insisted that I go to the ER. I was having Shortness of Breath which felt like anxiety except I was having chest, shoulder and arm discomfort. I was there from 10:30-5:00. The EKG, chest X-ray, and blood work were all good. Blood pressure finally came down after 4 hours of resting and nitrate? I think they said.

On the drive to work this morning, I remembered the scripture my mama shared with me when the kids were young and we were driving teenagers all over Georgia. God promises, “As thy days so shall thy strength be.” Deut. 33:25 Meaning that He will provide the strength needed for each day.

Connor had a birthday party- 7 years old! We decorated cookies, painted rocks and pumpkins two weekends in a row and I’m getting ready for my MK Holiday Open House.  As I write this, I am
Understanding why the meltdown. Mania spirals.
I didn’t see it coming this time.

Hugs to you. Prayers Appreciated

Pretty In Pink

Among a few of my favorite things is Pink and Mary Kay Cosmetics.  The name of my business Facebook page is Bonnie's Pretty in Pink.  Everyone who knows me knows my love for all things PINK. 

As I said in my last post, I am working a most stressful job. I have to make time-seriously pencil it in-time for my babies. It makes me sad that I rarely know my 2 month old because I'm working all the time.  I know that Mary Kay is not a cure-all.  It scares me to death to be doing this again, but I so want to get out of the rat-race of living the fast-paced manic lifestyle.  If I can make this work, I can work a part-time job for less money and do what I love.  This is in me.  Do you hear me?  I've done this successfully before and had fun with it off and on for 20 years.

I don't want to go through a door that has been shut, but I do pray for open doors as I embark upon this journey that I started years ago.  I'm also praying for God's will in other areas of ministry.

In 1987, God called me to teach women.  Although, I have done this in some capacity from time to time, I feel like I have most often been in the middle of the Jordan. I'm no longer in Egypt, but I'm not in my Promised Land either.  I'm praying that God will open my eyes and ears to His will and His direction.

If you love Mary Kay and have no consultant, please give me a chance to serve you. You can order directly from the above site.  If you spend over $50, I will go in and defray the cost of shipping.

Thank you so much.  My posts will not be about my business.  Just trying to get the word out.

Happy Fall Y’all

Oh what a beautiful morning! I’m singing🏈🎼 . It finally feels like Fall in Middle Tennessee.

I don’t do a lot of Fall decor. I keep it sweet and simple.

I’ve been very busy at work, 10-12 hour days. Again, I didn’t see myself doing this at this time in my life. I come home exhausted and wake up tired but when I’m talking one on one with one of my residents and I know I’m bringing joy, I’m happy. 

I spend my Saturdays with my babies and cherish each moment.

Once again, I am doing Mary Kay and preparing for my Holiday Open House.

We have new awesome skin care and I love it!
Visit me at Be on the look out for Pink Friday deals. (Black Friday) If you’re out of anything, feel free to shop.
Hope to catch up with you later.

Happy Fall Y’all!

I am so glad to be going home to GA for a few days. It’s been a busy two weeks. We have a new baby, Claire Grace, who was a week old on Monday.

I just can’t get enough! They are super excited. My little girl is trying to find her place in this threesome. She has been the baby for 4 1/2 years. You can see those raw emotions in her little face. 

These are my favorites! 

One more and this makes me swell with pride.

This Instagram screen shot was on Christina’s page. My baby with his baby! I love the way they love each other and those babies. 

I’ll miss them all this weekend, but a few days away will be good.

This one is on her way to Disneyworld!

See ya soon!
