Don't Give Up
As a child growing up, my mother stayed home with my sister, my brother, and myself and seemed happy being a housewife. I was happy with this because this meant I would have a snack ready when I got home from school and dinner wasn't long behind. I was fortunate when my two sons were tots to be able to stay home and care for them as well, but when they were both in school, I needed to busy myself somewhere besides home. So....well, I followed them to school. And that is where I am today and happily so, if I do say. But sometimes things change and you suddenly realize that like my father, who was our main provider financially growing up, my life may be going a different direction. Health issues force us to examine our lives and realize that, Wow, I may need to step up! I remember reading an issue of Mary Jane's Farm magazine and focusing on how bad sunblock was for our skin. All the cancer causing agents with names that would take a genius to pronounce, was shocking to me. I began to research and all beginnings, kept ending with Goat's Milk! This is when I became a scientist, as my husband says, experimenting with all these wonderful natural ingredients. I came up with pleasing products to me, and to my surprise lots of other people too. This is when Journey's Edge Farm was created. It is still a work in progress but I am so fortunate to have this opportunity to not only help myself and my family but also be able to share these fortifying products with others. So women, if you need a little push to accomplish a dream or help you find one, just let me know. I am proof that we can do whatever we put our minds to!
