Today is feeling a bit strange. Let’s see if I can find the words.
You see, today is the first time in fourteen and a half years that I will not be able to say “Creative Memories Consultant” when someone asks what I do. It’s almost the same feeling I had when I realized my nest was empty and wondered who I was.
I already miss my customers-turned-friends, who gathered every month at my house… filling it with laughter, joy and a little pocket change. I miss the stories of how meaningful and precious the combination of photos and stories in a scrapbook have been to someone. I miss the blessing of helping them create something that you can’t put a price tag on. I miss hearing about their lives.
But it’s a new day, a new season.
It’s time to sit with Dad and not be thinking of my to-do list.
It’s time to learn to be still.
It’s time to put on my Super-Nana cape.
It’s time to do a little playing.
Soon we will have so much fun when a certain little boy visits, bringing with him a whole new world to us. A world of all things boy… testosterone, wild-at-heart adventures, mud, and superheroes.
I’m ready. As our friend Steve would say… “Game On”
