April 1st is a hard day for me...I lost my best friend ~ my sweet mom 6 years ago today. I can't believe it's been so long. She was one of the most amazing gifts the Lord has ever given me. I actually started this blog with her in mind...I never intended to 'sell' anything on TPT. I didn't have a clue how to make things in power point and wasn't sure I had it in me.
I had my website since 2007 - Mrs. Moore's Busy Bees and enjoyed getting emails from teachers all over the world responding to my ideas, etc. So I thought how fun would it be to have a blog and a more interactive format with teachers leaving comments rather than emails. I knew that it would be very important for me to include motherhood fun and of course my mom's legacy so this blog was born.
After having my blog for 2 months I thought okay why not try to make something and see what TPT is all about??? I put my first product up the last week of March and do you know I made my very FIRST sale ever on April 1st of last year? I couldn't believe it...I just cried and cried. I know my mom had something to do with that for sure...the timing was crazy!
It's been a fun, unbelievable, wild ride full of lots of learning and tons of blessings. I know my mom who was an educator herself would be so proud and I wish she was here with me every single day.
Wasn't she beautiful??!? Such a blessing to me for sure. Today we head down to the beach to honor her - it has become a tradition. We write messages on balloons and release them to heaven for her to read as my little guy said when he was six.
To honor her I want to give 6 of my items away to one lucky friend....this is what I would like for you to do. Leave me a comment about someone - anyone who is your hero and your inspiration. If they are still around tell them that you feel that way. We are all blessed with wonderful people in our lives. Tell me about yours below and leave your email. I will pick a special winner tomorrow so my email subscribers can join in as well. Thanks everyone for helping me celebrate my beautiful mama today.. <3
