So I know it’s cold and rainy and possibly even snowy today in metro Detroit but spring IS dawning – with the launch of my new corporate website at www.yourppl.com.
Not only that – but Sunday night I had a great party of about 20 amazing women here in my living room, and the Eliana tablecloth once again commanded the crowd. Yes. I have a tablecloth named after my daughter mainly because I bought it in the throes of energy I felt mere hours before I went into labor with my delightful little girl.
That was 6 1/2 years ago and I am still laying my table with the periwinkle blue cloth made in India and decorated with red and yellow flowers. It gets comments every time – just like my sweet girl does.
Life has been busy, you know. Yesterday as I waited for the mechanic to replace the brake rotors on my minivan, I pored over a family restaurant menu that offered just about everything. This was not a high-end restaurant, but I was blissful as I opened a tall packed menu that promised eggs and bacon, chicken soup, spinach pie, grilled cheese, coneys and fruit plates, patty melts and liver and onions.
I like an anything-you-want menu because life is never like that. Every day we face limits and the need to make choices. In most areas of life, I cannot even remotely have anything I want and really the menu that offers it all won’t quite deliver because you and I both know I cannot possibly ingest a little bit of everything.
But a woman can dream.
It’s the promise of sky’s-limit generosity offered up with a pickle. My daughter always wants what’s on my plate or her brothers’. I’m like that too. At 38 years old, my father laughs when I order way too much food. It’s the maybe-I’m-missing-some-fantastic-flavor, never eclipsed by the idea of being satisfied with what’s on my plate right this minute.
I am, of course.
My new website epitomizes the kind of work and style of my company, Your People LLC.
I have the three best kids in the entire world.
I am surrounded by good people, in my work and in my personal life.
I have finally found the love I always knew was out there but never held in my soft hands.
I know I say it a lot but that’s because it means something: It’s All Good. It really is. Go to your day.
