Bridging the Gap

We all know that it can be difficult to live in a large family.  From the crazy Aunts and Uncles to your brothers and sisters that can annoy and delight you.  I’ve found that having a larger family is a blessing the older I get and know that they are here for me when I need them.  Recently we went thru a pretty hard time in our work career.  After leaving a very bad job situation we needed to find a new career and fast. We were broke and not sure what to do and reached out to family.  After many conversations, prayers and lots of trying to open doors and find solutions, we were blessed to figure out a way to get capital to start a new business and we were off on a new adventure.  This new adventure was going to be hard and we had no idea what were getting ourselves into, but we knew that we didn’t want to stay where we were.

Destined to becomeLooking back on all of the decisions and struggles we had over the last year or so has been an eye opening experience about ourselves and our goals and dreams.  We set out to do one thing, and now are in a totally different position.  We’ve met some amazing people along the way, but the thing that has stuck out most for us is the support of our family.  Family has your back no matter what, and we’ve been blessed with amazing family.  When we were in need and were struggling we reached out and found help.  Many people aren’t able to find that kind of help, and it’s been a blessing to watch our growth and the investment our family has made to this point.  Now, we have 2 businesses with both doing well and our lives have taken on a whole new set of joys.  Who knows where this will take us in another year and how our lives will change.

Along the way we’ve met and made some incredible friendships.  One of those was with a Denton Orthodontist that took care of our daughter’s braces.  After moving around so much we needed someone to finish out her braces and make everything the way it needed to be.  We were fortunate enough to find a great Orthodontist and she has had her braces removed and her teeth look amazing.  Their whole staff is amazing and it’s been a blessing to meet them.  We also met others along the journey including an amazing Insurance Agency and Agent, and others that have helped us not only grow our Business, but grow as individuals and a family.  What a blessing it is to find great people that are a blessing in so many different ways!

So the next time you need to bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be, what about asking your family.  My family has been amazing and done things for us that I would’ve never dreamed!  They’ve helped us financially, emotionally, and supported us every step of the way.  Family is awesome and I couldn’t be more blessed with such an amazing family.  Today we set out on a new journey that only is happening because of our amazing family.  If they wouldn’t have stepped in over a year ago to help, we would still be struggling and trying to figure out how to pay the bills and find freedom from a workplace that was toxic.  Thanks for family, and thanks for bridging the gap!
