Heat lightning and fireflies

Sometimes nature sure does amaze me.

I had to take my crazy dog Oscar out for his 9:00 p.m. duties (yes, it is every night at 9:00 - for some reason he has this time set in his internal clock to drive me crazy). While standing there waiting while he does his circles around to find the perfect spot, it happened...FLASH

The lightning in the sky was amazing! No sound, just beautiful light that illuminated the sky and the clouds. At night, when it is overcast, you just see black with no lines to differentiate the clouds. When the lightning went off, it was beautiful - you could see the outline of each cloud and colors of pink and purple. It was like enjoying fireworks without the noise.

I also saw the first firefly of the year. My yard is dark ao the fireflies are wonderful to see. So I had big fireworks and little fireworks.

Thanks Oscar - I would have missed out on this if you weren't so persistent...

The end...

I just sent out the official email to all my wonderful customers that I will be deactivating as a Creative Memories Consultant. It was so hard to do - making this decision. Sometimes you feel as if you are a 'failure when you quit' something. I wanted so much for it to work but it was not the right time. I did learn alot about myself though - what I can and can not do, what I feel comfortable with and going outside of my comfort zone and I hope I have grown with this.

Do I feel a little sorry for myself? Yes, but I will get over it. It was more difficult to let my unit leader Debi know - I cried after I told her. She is great - understood why I had to do it. What a cool lady for sure!

I really appreciate women who go into the direct selling business - whether scrapbooking, food, toys, etc. - it is not easy for sure! In a way, I am glad it's over. No more pressure - I can relax and focus on what I enjoy doing.

What are your thoughts? Let me know.
