This morning I am sitting in a rocking chair at the Scentsy Commons in Meridian, ID. Why you ask? Well, its the Scentsy Rock-A-Thon for March of Dimes. All day from 6 am to 5 pm rocking chairs are lining Eagle Road. For 30 minutes I will be rocking. 🙂 The only thing missing? A little one to rock. 🙂 As an aunt to 41 (yes, I said 41) and great aunt to 7, I LOVE holding and rocking little ones. I have always told my husband if ever we lived close enough to a NICU, I would volunteer to hold and rock the babies.
Children are a blessing. I was blessed with three wonderful, active, beautiful children. They somehow, however, have grown into wonderful, beautiful, independent adults! How did that ever happen? How can my kids be almost 24, 22 and 20? My youngest PROMISED when she was 2 that she would always be little and never leave me. Well, I guess I should have gotten that in writing.
As I sit here and rock and think about life and kids, I also think about what Scentsy has for kids. Scentsy warmers and Scentsy fragrances, Scentsy buddies and Scrubby buddies to name a few. One of my favorite Scentsy bars that is available is Newborn Nursery – oh the smell of a clean lotioned baby. The reality of life is that not all babies are born healthy and ready to go home and moms need help before, during and after. March of Dimes has filled a gap to help. What a wonderful orgainization.
Well, my time in rocking chair #32 is about done. The sun is up and warm in my face and I’m being “tagged out”. Here’s to another wonderful beautiful day.
