Blue Ponchos and Joe

Joe is my best friend. He supports me in everything I do every step of the way. Meeting him was one of the greatest things to ever happen to me. He supports and encourages me in my essential oils journey and in my knitting journey. He sees me trying to keep up with my full time teaching job as well as my two part time jobs that often take up most of my time in the evenings. He never complains. He cheers me on. He tells me he feels bad for me that I am always working. He loves me for it anyway. He knows I have big goals. He believes in me and that is what matters most. He is my rock. He is the one I know I can always count on. He hears me say out loud, “I will be successful enough to someday work from home.” He hears me talk about my love of essential oils and the Young Living business every. single. day. He uses the oils, he uses his diffusers, he tells his friends about the oils and his friends buy the oils and the diffusers. He wants nothing but the best for me and he knows that by working really, really hard right now, I WILL accomplish my goals. My knitting shop is growing in popularity, views, and sales every day. It’s exciting to see it all falling into place but my to-do list is a mile long and my free time is scarce. I just know in my heart that 2016 is going to be our year. It feels like good things are coming our way. I have faith and I have Joe.
