One Extraordinary Message Turned Things Right Around

It's never fun being sick, but having a bad cold on Easter Sunday is really, really no fun.

Outside, my kids are running around my parents' backyard on an egg hunt with their uncle & grandpa. My husband & my mom are in the kitchen preparing a delicious meal that I know I'm going to love (even if it hurts to swallow).

It's a beautiful day with some of my favorite people in the whole world...and my body doesn't want to cooperate!

And even though I find a lot of comfort in being surrounded by family, I have to admit that it's hard for me to avoid feeling discouraged when I'm under the weather.

When my body aches and my energy is low, I begin to question everything. I start to wonder if all the hard work and sacrifices are worth it, for myself or my family.

Have you ever felt like that?

That's why I appreciate every bit of feedback and encouragement that I receive. If you've ever taken the time to write me an email, leave a review, comment in the blog or post & tag us on social media, I want to sincerely thank you.

Your words help to remind me of the mission behind my business. They center my heart towards service and refocus my vision on the things that matter most.

Your Words Matter to Me

I want to share a customer review that we recently received for the Create-Your-Own Groovy Lamp Lip Gloss Kit. I just re-read it this morning, and it was like medicine for my spirit.

"This was the perfect activity to do with my 6 yr old daughter. I watched her hold the lip gloss items and follow the steps with her little fingers. It brought tears to my eyes, realizing how much my little girl has grown, and how strong and smart she is. It is so easy to get lost in the day to day tasks, and having these moments are crucial to my sanity. Thank you for this." - Katie

Wow! I wish I could reach right through my screen and give Katie and her daughter a hug right now.

Thank you, Katie, for this thoughtful reminder of just how fleeting every single moment is. I look at my growing boys and know that someday I'm going to blink...and they'll be men.

I realize that I only have a few short years to help shape those boys, to teach them, to prepare them for what they will face as adults. The responsibility and gift of that is mind-blowingly sublime.

It means so much to me that Handcrafted HoneyBee is able to help a mother appreciate those moments with her daughter. I love knowing that we're playing a small part in helping to make lasting memories, one family at a time.

    Susan, thanks so much for your kind words! I’m really glad to know that you are enjoying our deodorant and that it’s working well for you, even in the tropical heat. I’ll be curious to know your favorite scent once you’ve tried all five in the mini collection.

    Thanks again from both Stacia and me!

    I live in Hawaii and although it is pleasant most of the time, at present we are going through a rather steamy, humid spell. My regular deoderant is one that I purchase at a health store. It was recommended as it is sent to some of our troops deployed in the middle east. I must say it works. But it is a roll-on, not my ideal. I purchased the 5 mini collection and am I glad I did. I’ve only used the lemon grass so far but I really like it. Not only does it work, but the fragrance is wonderful. I look forward to trying the other four. Nice to know you can buy a product that works and supports a positive agenda for young people. Thanks and keep up the good work.
