A Thanksgiving Break



Once again, ladies and gentlemen, life is happening.

My husband, the boys and I have three Thanksgiving dinners to go to this coming week and I don't want to stress myself out over the blog. My house is still a wreck and I am still very ill (I'll be going to the doctor again during this hiatus). Today and tomorrow will be spent preparing our home for overnight visitors (my nieces - hooray!), and while I may be completing some of the daily tasks over the next week or so, I will not be blogging about them until after Thanksgiving. I'm still not sure how this is going to pan out. I may return with a blog about everything I've done during the break, or I may hold off on the tasks and resume the journey after the holiday madness has ended. We'll just have to see what happens.

I'm not quitting. I'm just doing the best I can with the time I've got. I'm not neglecting myself or the journey, I'm just enjoying my favorite holiday with my loving family by my side. I think one of the best ways a woman can nurture herself is to spend time just being with her family and her friends (provided the family and friends are healthy people to be around, which in this case, they definitely are).

Yes, I realize this is meant to be a 30-day journey and I'm dragging it out like nobody's business. I also realize that I am merely a human being and a busy stay-at-home mom who has a lot on her plate... and I am about as real as they come. I always do my best to be genuine. The transparency of this whole process has brought us to this Thanksgiving break. Remember, enough is enough.

So until next time... Happy Thanksgiving and happy healing!

Thirty days is thirty days, whenever you can get to them! You're absolutely right, Megan, to take it slow so you can get the most out of it. That's the whole idea, right? Life should be on your terms whenever possible, that's my belief. I also believe in being genuine too. And here's hoping you have some delicious food on your plate over the holidays as well as the rest of it, LOL. Take a well-deserved break and enjoy having come far enough in your journey that you are able to. :D

Happy Thanksgiving!! All blogs suffer when it is holiday time (I know that mine sure will!) even the survivor ones or ones where people are trying to accomplish something.....

Have a nice break and special memory building time with your family--that is part of healing too! You can't schedule everything in your life, and you can't schedule everything in your healing journey either....rushing stuff together and doing it just to get it done would be a disservice to you and your journey.

I look forward to picking back up with you when your life settles down.

Meggs sorry about the length of this post. Please read through for it contains a message to you. I am posponing the launch of my site for one additional week. which I was determined that today was that day. Today I'm grateful for an open mind and for the allowance that plans sometimes benifit from change...Flawless is not an easy name to live up to, it was given to me almost 20 years ago by a beloved friend, then turned into a joke for several years (usually at my expense)But for the past few years the nickname Flawless has come to mean so much more. My life was blessed and I received legal clearance to visit several lock down facilities that housed children throughout OC CA on a regular volunteer basis. I shared with girls ranging in age from toddler to 18 yrs of age My own experience with incest and abuse. I used to tell them how flawless they were and that none of their experience was of their own doing. They always wanted to hear what I came to say. When it was their time to share, they seemed more content asking questions about my life and commenting about my various high heels. So I let them. One night upon seeing me enter a voice called out from the group "Yay! Your the Flawless Lady " Who am I to argue with that. So for me A Flawless Image embodies so much more than meets the eye...It was designed in honor of women like yourself as I made a promise to myself that I would not compromise my life experience,nor forget that of those little ones and now want to extend that same kind of courtesy and love to include my customers.You have given me so much to think about as I have followed you for the past week on Twitter and since day one of the Discussion Board. I have a very strong faith in God which has led me through and out of some of the most heartwrenching situations and I have imagined for years that there might be an "Army of Angels" that could help me and my daughter whom I havent seen since last Christmas. The holidays are such a tough time to get through when there is so much focus on Family. This year you have given me so much to be thankful for. I want to pass on one of my favorite quotes to you,as you are a living breathing example of the following words and what one can do to inspire so many...For you Meggs "True humility is not thinking less of yourself...it's thinking of your self less" -Sometimes God knows we need something with skin on it, thank you for demonstrating God's omnipotence in my life...I love you and all the wonderful women that share their hearts.-ps: I LOVE the Christmas tree!

Marcia, I am so humbled by what you have shared with me here, and so inspired by your story! I am blessed to be able to help others by sharing this journey. I appreciate you so much. And I appreciate what you've said to me here especially because I love the Lord with all my heart and pray that somehow He will use me to bring Him glory. I strive to be a reflection of the love of God. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again. My heart is full this evening. I needed this hug of a message. BLESSINGS to you and your mission!!! And big Thanksgiving hugs to you. You'll be in my prayers, and I mean that. P.S. I'm starting to love the tree too! ;)
