December Flower Momma Message
A prayer I repeat often for my Sadie Bug is that the good take root, and that the bad go unnoticed - right over her head. Lately with what has been stirring in my heart, and in the beginning stages of coming to fruition, it has had me reflecting on what has caught my attention? What made me turn my head sideways?
10 years ago I was a college girl that was super ambitious with big plans for the flower shop. I followed every flower shop known to man on Instagram. I was sitting in that tension that I am sure most of you mommas see in your ambitious daughters - she doesn't do well on a leash but you know she isn't quite ready to fly on her own. I wanted to own the flower shop - yesterday. My parents weren't ready to sell, and lets be real I was in no posiion to buy as I was in the thick of college, engagement and more.
But I could still dream. One flower shop I loved following was Stems Dallas. They shared that they were having a kinship summit filled with amazing speakers right there in their studio! Truth be told, what caught my attention here was Catherine Giudici Lowe from The Bachelorette was on the panel . “Cool, I can see their studio and maybe snap a fangirl pic with Catherine.” Ticketmaster…. ticket for one please! (Don't worry - no problems like the T-Sift concert here.)
I still admire the heck out of this obedient 19 year old Jenny.
I did see their studio.
I did not get the fan girl picture.
I did leave with a weird call that I didn't fully understand.
I remember leaving that event with tears in my eyes all the way home. Can I tell you what I heard? no. Can I tell you what I saw? yes. I felt the prompt and sweet very faint whisper say
“you are going to do this one day”
I had no clue what that meant. What exactly is this you speak of??
It didn't make sense to me for a long time until The Flower Momma community started. Having conversations with women daily, praying for them, looking for ways to encourage them, and most importantly- help them celebrate well.
Help them celebrate and remember why it is important to have those rhythms of celebration in our life.
We celebrate to REMEMBER He is still good and He is still faithful.
It has been no secret that my heart beats for celebration. From growing up in the shop to understanding how He uniquely created me in His image.
One thing is a constant this side of heaven, we all hold the tension of grief and joy this side of heaven.
Which is why I am excited to introduce an event we will be holding April 29th….
