The Weekly Smile July 22, 2019

This past week has been good for the most part. Though there’s been some drama in personal relationships, and I for one ain’t got no time for people’s crap. So I’m trying really hard to focus on the blessings.

If you remember, I had my first commissioned people pictures lol. It was quite interesting, and I felt like a complete weirdo the whole time. Above is one of the family pics. Tired and hungry kids make things extra interesting. But I did my best, and overall they are happy. So I am happy. I love natural backgrounds, and I don’t do a lot of editing. I love these people and their story is amazing and God filled.

Some people have seen this. But I made gluten and dairy free no bake cookies! And they are so good! This gluten free thing, while improving my health has tested my lack of self control for treats. I’ve not cheated, but I really wanted to find something easy. And the whole family loves them. I’m finding cooking at home not only saves obvious money, but is less emotionally traumatic for me. I almost cried Sunday as the waitress and I used the allergy menu and my phone to find something suitable for me to eat. In time it will get better-not quite there yet.

And against many protests, I am saving for the above to be my next tattoo. No it won’t be huge. But it holds dear to me who I truly am, and where my worth lies. It may be awhile lol, but it’s one I can live with even in my wrinkled era.

Tomorrow is the big day for the thing I have yet to tell you about. Basically, my samples will be reviewed by a companies marketing team to see if I have what it takes to be part of their Texas loving community. I’m hoping to know by next week for sure. This is not a place two years ago I would have seen myself. But God is opening doors, so I shall see where he is leading me. If it’s a no, I just have to stop and listen for His next directions. Prayers appreciated.

Hope you all have an abundantly blessed week!

    People pictures are not my strong point – I can see why you’d feel funny doing them. Good luck in big day tomorrow!
