Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

HORRIBLE DAY.. I think I wll ELF us...

Horrible day at the sale :( Worse than I could ever imagine. We are all kinda in a sad shock state right now, but thankful for what we did sale, and PRAYERFUL for tomorow to bring MUCH BETTER SALES! At least to make back what we have put into it. Needing to veg and get mind off it all. So I elfed us!

Hi Tami,
It stinks that your sale didn't go as well as you had hoped today, but tomorrow is another day! I hope that buisiness picks up for you. I have done tons of craft shows in the past and I had a few tricks that always brought me luck. The first was to always greet an interested customer with a big smile and be ready to answer questions but don't hover, it makes people less likely to buy if you hover. Second whenever there were people at the table I always made sure I was standing. I don't know why that increased my sales, maybe it made me more visible I'm not sure but it worked. and last but not least, depending on the season I would always put out a basket or bowl with free lolly pops or in your case you could use candy canes that I would attach a little hang tag with my buisiness name on it. You could attach a tag with the story of your beautiful baby boy who is waiting to come home to his loving family. you can also add a link to your blog so people can follow your journey(extra prayes never hurt!).The free candy would always draw the children to the table and then the parents follow and the more traffic the better your chances are to make a sale. For some reason when a small crowd of people crowd around a table that makes other people want to come and see what all the fuss is about and thats what you want. Even if they take the candy and don't buy anything they will still see your story and they might contact you in the future if they need to purchase a gift.
I hope you don't mind me throwing by tips out there, These were things that always worked well for me so I thought I would pass them on. I am sending tons of prayers that tomorrow is an awesome blow out of a sale for you!!!
Good Luck

Tami, I'm sorry it was such a rough day. And I'm sorry that you have gone through such a tough time with changing churches,losing friendships, etc. But your son is such a cutie-pie and nothing is too hard for God. Hold on to HIM for your very life. He will never leave you or forsake you. He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. I know you know this already :) Love Joy, RR

Sorry Tami Joy. We went through this. Biggest sale of all got rained out, we lost two hundred dollars in our investment. Our family felt beaten down just like y'all do. But GATES CAME HOME!
So will Jeremiah. The battle for these kids is exhausting but they can't fight it for themselves. God will be victorious, rest now sweet Sister because the Battle Belongs to the Lord and He has given you the victory!

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
