As I entered the room I felt her energy bounce across the floor, as I strolled over to meet her.
I was there to decorate for her grandson's wedding rehearsal dinner. Her daughter and I have know each other since our early mothering days...we both had only four at that time and now we both have six children. Although I haven't had the delight to know her mother also, I felt our hearts just joined immediately. She wasn't sure how I could pull off the theme of the night without looking "cheesy" as she told her daughter, but in the end, I think I won her over. She sure won me over.
She is retired and yet in her retirement, I wonder if God hasn't saved the best for this season of her life. She is a doting grandmother and supportive mother to her daughters. Instead of just curling up and enjoying the relaxing years of deserved retirement, she ventured out with her daughter to start a business.
She is an entrepreneur More importantly she is a precious woman of God. You put those two together and I just gravitate toward a woman of that stature.
She is the owner of Lazy i Farms, which produces soaps and lotions from goats milk. She just bubbles over in excitement talking about her business. Her desire to help other is expressed through her help to cancer patients. She has personally developed her products...they are totally American made. Her daughter worked beside her for years, as they both raised goats and developed the business. Her grandson now attends market days with her.
Since I won her over with my not so "cheesy" decorating and coordinating of her grandson's rehearsal dinner ( I will post later what I did) she blessed me with a bag full of goodies from her business.
You know most things are really caught more than taught. I caught a hand full just visiting and being with this woman. Her daughter and son-in-law blessed my socks off also...I caught from them also. The Body of Christ blessing each other is really a joy to experience.
So many times words are needless...actions speak so much louder.
Please check our her site....she is a jewel and her products are wonderful. Maybe even do some shopping, as you visit, but please let her know I sent you her way.
