Welcome to 31 Days:
I begin this first post of our series by taking a long, slow deep breath and chanting our dear Nestor's Wisdom Statement in my head:
“It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful…It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful…Thank Goodness it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful...”
This is the first time I’ve participated in a 31 Days series and I'm very excited about participating. I want to start off thanking The Nestor for starting up the 31 Days Series five years ago and also thank the wonderful posters who participated over the years and from whom I have derived much pleasure and benefit of their wisdom. You can click here for more information what 31 Days is all about..
I’m calling this series “Celebrating You!” because for the month of October I want for us to take time out each day to learn about and celebrate who we are. I really wanted to name this series was “Why YES, it is really is all about Me!” but I decided to try to keep it classy at least for my first time out. The essence of this thought, however, is what I want to impress upon you for this series. It really is all about you. It really is. We’re going to talk about how, we’re going to talk about why and by the end of these 31 days, you’ll believe it too.
As this is the introductory post, I will introduce myself.
My name is Cassandra. I am fifty-seven years old (yes, I said it out loud), a mother of three wonderful sons and the gram-gram of two wonderful grandsons and three lovely granddaughters. I currently live in the Great State of Texas (…and yes, you do have to say it that way. It’s a Texas thing…) where I reside in my grandmother’s 1920 historically registered home near downtown Dallas. My favorite color is red, my favorite season of the year is the fall and some of my favorite places in the whole wide world are bookstores. I am in love with bookstores and I can spend all day in one and frequently do. I am a Christian, (unapologetic and unashamed) and I currently serve in my church as the pastor of women. I love working with women. I think women are glorious creatures and I am so pleased to be one. We have are issues, yes, but…well…we’re women. That happens.
As you can tell I do try to keep things light but one the thing I am thoroughly convinced about is it really is all about you and we’re going to be Celebrating You! for the month of October. Please stay with us and join in the conversation. We'd really love to get to know you.
Please take a moment to say 'Hi' and tell us a bit about yourself so we can begin Celebrating You!
