Today feels like January 1st to me. It's the first day I've been back to work since Dec. 23, so you'll have to forgive me if I use the line on you--"I haven't seen you since last year!" Humor me for a week on that one!
After being sick for about 2 weeks with some crazy virus (not Covid,) I felt like everything came to a standstill. As I got ready for work today, I was full of thankfulness for better health and a great place to work. I felt like I hit the "reset" button: I was back up early reading for an hour, worked out, and then headed here. All the new year's plans I had were put on hold while I was sick, and now it's time to get going!
Do you ever wish you had a "reset button?" I joke that sometimes we're so busy running and doing that God finally forces us to rest and reset. It's not always what we want but usually what we need. It makes me think of the times I've had difficulty with my computer or phone and haven't known what to do. Finally someone will ask, "have you tried turning it off and restarting?" Ummm...no. I guess I will now!! After the restart, everything is back to smooth sailing.
I think this idea of reset can apply to so many areas of our lives, whether physical, mental, spiritual, or to our homes in general. As I'm typing this, Rachel is doing a major reset of the store. Seasons change and resets are needed, and yet I'm amazed after every reset how perfect it looks.
We can't wait to show you all the new items that have arrived, and I can't wait to see your faces and say HAPPY NEW YEAR! If you're feeling the need for a reset, come on in. We'll help you find joy here!
Until next time,
