Back to my First Love

It is finished. Naturally Cozy has been successfully transferred to its new owners. Our final orders are out the door, the sewing machine is quiet and bolts of fabric no longer fill our "shouse". I have ceased to be haunted by looming orders, deadlines or mechanical malfunctions. I don't wake up in the morning with the weight of the world on my shoulders, organizing my schedule before my feet even hit the floor. Once again, I am but a wife and mother, seeking nothing more than to serve my family. I am back to my first love.

Before Naturally Cozy, I spent my time caring for my husband, nurturing my children and managing my home. As my business grew, my time was no longer my own and I longed to return to my first love. And now, 4 1/2 years since I took my first Naturally Cozy order, I am once again free to be "only" a wife and a mother. I can hardly contain my excitement!

What did we do with our first free day in years? Sir Knight and I packed up the children and headed to the lake! We spent hour after glorious hour splashing in the tide created by passing speedboats, playing "King of the Hill" on the top of a driftwood log and chasing each other to our hearts content. Oh, wonderful, sweet days of summer!

I am so grateful for the blessing of Naturally Cozy, but I am thankful beyond belief to once again resume my rightful role of wife and mother and return to my first love.
