This card is for you, Nichole in honor of the first PTI Nichole Heady Appreciation Blog Hop:
For 28 years, most of my identity has been as a mother. My two oldest sons are both living on their own, married and in their own homes and my daughter is in college. For the last couple of years I have really struggled with "letting go", which is the way it should be. I have done a good job as a mom and am proud of the adults my kids have grown up to be. But...what do I do now?
This is where you come in Nichole. I discovered PTI and your Capture the Moment blog. With it, I found something interesting, fun and creative that I can do with my time that fills up a little bit of space that my day to day mothering used to take up. I have things to look forward to every day that are centered on me, Cathy rather than on me, Mom.
I probably will never meet you in person, although someday I hope to. Your blog, your cards, your videos, and your wonderful company has given me so much pleasure, excitement and enjoyment of life. Because of you, Nichole, I have met so many wonderful people on the PTI forum. I absolutely love reading about and talking about everything PTI and your readers are the most thoughtful and encouraging people I have ever known.
Thank you Nichole for touching my life in such a positive, meaningful manner and for bringing such a big smile to my face on a daily basis. This is obviously not just a job for you, just as it is not just a hobby for all of your readers. I appreciate you and am so thankful for YOU.
