Many of you know the scripture and the song that goes "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun." Well, for many people around the country, the seasons of change are coming with the weather. For some of you, the fall crisp air is beginning the morning and ending the evening. Leaves already may be turning colors in some parts of the country and maybe long pants and jackets are being pulled out of closets for you. I know for me living in Texas, we are still amidst our last bit of summer. I tend to mourn the end of summer as I love the warmth, pool time, parties, barbecues, and trips. But as I know - everything has it's season and time of purpose. Not only is the season of change happening for our weather, but for me its happening in many other ways. I took Cade to see a pre-school this week that he will be starting in the next couple of weeks. He will go every Tuesday and Friday. It's a mixture of emotions for me as I know this will be good for him and also allow me the time I need to continue focusing on all the wonderful business opportunities in front of me. However, it's still a little hard knowing that this time of him being with me everyday all day is coming to an end. That he will be affected by others (good and bad) and that Mommy and Daddy aren't his only source of knowledge, interaction, learning and so on. I know it's time though.
PIOB has been going through it's season of changes as well. With Elizabeth getting all her kiddos back to school and in their activities (remember she is juggling 5 kids schedules :), and with me landing 2 new clients as well as participating in my husband's real estate business and still taking care of my son full time - it seems that our time has become a little more hectic and less available. We want you all to know that PIOB is still a love for both of us and very important in our lives, but know that as all seasons have change we too are working out how to continue incorporating this "dear to our hearts" charity into our busy lives. We know you all understand but we want to truly re-iterate that we are still diligently working on matching up families and finding donating families as much as we can. We know there are many of you on our list that are still waiting to receive clothes and some of you as well who have offered clothes that don't yet have a match. We haven't forgot you! We promise each of you that we will find that match as soon as we possibly can. Please bear with us as we continue to learn to balance it all.
We know each season of change brings it's very own purpose. We are embracing the weather changes as well as the PIOB changes. Please share with us what season of changes are happening for you in your life? Or let us know what you love about the new season of changes in weather? The leaves, the football, the cool air? We'd love to hear from you!
In love & kindness,
