I've missed you!

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

Hello my friends and family!
I'm back : ) Did you miss me? I sure missed blogging! I have so much to tell you about this past month! I will begin by saying, Joe and I have been working 16-18 hour days at our new Restaurant, scrubbing and cleaning and washing and painting! We've been working very vigorously trying to get it ready for it's January opening! We took Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off to celebrate Christ's Birth with our family and right after that it was back to work!
I wake up each morning body aching, my hands rough and chapped, my back hurting..but with a huge smile on my face and incredible joy in my heart!
I am falling so deeply in love with this beautiful old building that my heart races to get downstairs and work inside of it. We are making it clean and beautiful for people! Oh friends..I can't wait for you to see it! The Tavern on the Square..there is no doubt in my mind that God has prepared me for this adventure. The road I've been on has led me here and this is just the beginning of this leg of the race!
It is early morning now and I must get up and prepare for the day. Today is a day filled with errands and mental work. My body will appreciate the rest and I will enjoy talking on the phone and running errands.
Do you know what I've missed most this month? SOCIALIZING! I have been a shut in. I haven't been able to communicate with my friends and family and bloggers! I haven't been outside enough. I MISS PEOPLE!!!!
It will all come soon enough though.. I realize that! Please know, if you are reading this that I love you dearly and I miss you. Please don't feel shut out of my world if you haven't heard from me..we truly have had to work this much in order to open. We have not had an income for the past month, and we have to open as soon as possible or we will run out of money!
See you soon! With Christ's amazing and neverending love,
