...And Still Moving

It's been a long time since I've blogged. But I've kept things rolling with my collection Thank you Jesus! The balancing act of maintaining a regular 9 to 5, starting a business and taking care of family has really been a tough roe to hoe in the midst of a recession. It seems that having one bread winner in the household has changed right before my eyes. Go to school, get your degree, find a good job, get married, raise a family, then retire are things of the past. That was the philosophy instilled in me by my parents. That too has past! I digress.

During the last year, business has been slow as my attention changed focus to family and work. My dad, the fighter that he is, overcame some health issues that had us worried and the job still has folks on edge, wonderng if will we have a job one day to the next. A lot of family and friends are facing the juggling act of finding a second job or starting a side business to make up for lost income or to hedge the threat of losing income. I have faith that our country will bounce back and new trailblazers will be revealed through the triumphs that come out of this recession. A change gone come.
