How many times have you felt so close to amazing?
Like your hair was just almost perfect
Or your clothes were fitting just a little looser
Or the house was basically clean
Or your To Do list was all checked off…
even the things on the list that you added just so you could
“check THEM off”.
(I know right? I DO THAT too!!)
But still, you just simply thought you fell short…
short of your almost amazingness…
Taking care of all the details
Trying so hard to keep your desk cleared
only to have it piled high with another deadline
Picking all the toys off the floor only to have them
scattered again by your rambunctious toddler
All the laundry folded…AGAIN
you’ve planned great meals
your work schedule fits your needs perfectly…
then something brings you down
a rude motorist
a post on social media that leaves you longing…
Have you been there?
Have you felt like you’ve lost hope?
Maybe your heart has lost hope
your brain says, “Hang on a minute…or 5 years.
it’s NOT over!! Don’t lose hope.”
Earlier this summer,
a blogger whom I adore,
and have had the opportunity to meet
IN REAL LIFE (like squeeeeee)
announced that she was assembling a team
to assist in launching her new book,
So Close To Amazing.
I applied to participate and did cartwheels
over the moon
(in my heart and mind)
when I was added to the launch team.
KariAnne (the author of the book) who writes
the blog Thistlewood Farms has been a constant encourager
to the launch team and I am honored to participate.
Once you start reading her book, you won’t be able to
put it down.
Unless your kids run through the house with their clothes on fire…
that may or may not possibly make you put it down…but
it is filled with stories that will keep your
tummy jiggling with laughter,
or possibly a tear or two sliding down your fake smile weary cheeks,
or slowly nodding your head to and fro saying,
“Yeah, me too. I just thought that same thing.”
So if you’ve ever felt so.close.to.amazing…
yet, still feel you fall so short,
and you are needing encouragement to “stay the path”
and “keep your faith walk” of your own amazing journey,
then you will find yourself hidden right down deep in the text of this book.

But I promise you won’t be disappointed.
