You Find Out Who Your Friends Are

The launch of my Verity Mom campaign has been so far, so good. My fans on facebook are rolling in, and I even have a few followers on Twitter. I hate to admit it but some insecurities surfaced yesterday. I thought that I was going to be judged on my looks, my creativity, and probably just about everything that people could pick apart. Instead I got an overwhelming amount of support.

Just a few hours after everything was posted I got a call from my husbands cousin wanting to know how she could help (thanks Tracy). My brother-in-law wrote a seriously nice post about me on (thanks Jonn). And my rock star sister-in-law took it upon herself to start campaigning for me(thanks Em). Whoever said in-laws are hard to deal with obviously have not meant mine.

I'm sitting here tonight a happy woman. Sure, my house went from show ready (it's on the market) to fire hazard in two days. My kids never got dressed yesterday, and my fantasy football team might totally stink this year (didn't get my draft picks done), but it was worth it. It's in situations like these that you find out who your friends are. They are the ones that support you, stand by you, and laugh at you (cuz lets face it, you're funny). I'm so thankful for my family, my friends, and right now especially my in-laws.

    I love the honesty! Don't you know girl, that everyone feels insecure and intimidated?? You are adorable and very creative and there is no need to feel any fear of being judged... or rejected. It's a personal thing to put ourselves out there like this; but the good that comes out of it is the reinforcement that we are loved and supported. What is meant to be, will be. In the meantime you just give it your best shot! Good Luck...
    From one Verity Mom to another... no matter what the outcome is. ;-)
