When I was a little girl, my favorite thing to do was to pretend that I was a hotel manager, a business women using some of my dad's old phones & office supplies, or a secretary answering phones.
When I was a little older, my friends (Caroline Marie Gay and Carlton Grace Gay) and I started a business one summer selling candy and lemonade from a wagon to our neighbors. We made about $100. Then, the next summer, I attended a Leadership Camp.
Then, I took on leadership roles as a volleyball player and coach. I went on to study business/entrepreneurship in MTSU's Entrepreneurship program.
I didn't realize how my life experiences had groomed me for the position that I am in today until now. Being able to run a business with my family that allows me to serve the elderly, people with disabilities and/or diseases, and our veterans combines so many of the things I love most.
-Loving and Caring for Others
-Business (as nerdy as it sounds, I love love love everything that goes into business)
As we move into this new office and take this new step as a company, I am feeling so grateful and humbled. God is so masterful with the way he reveals things to us. I am so happy that I get to wake up every day and do this job. It's not easy. It's not always cheerful. It's definitely not stress-free.
However, this job allows me to see life with a new perspective each day. Each new family that we serve and each new employee that walks through our door is an opportunity for me to see how different and how similar all of our stories in this life can be. Most importantly, this job continues to highlight how thankful I am that I am even able to go to work each day. I can do all the activities of daily living that we all need to do each day to get through the day without any assistance. That alone, is enough to put all my other worries and problems in the back seat.
New chapters in life always seem to push me to reflection. This time, I just thought I would share my thoughts with you. Hope everyone has a great rest of your week!
