EEEKKK!!! I am so excited, nervous, jittery and just basically a ball full of emotions to share with you that I will be starting a PODCAST on Sunday, January 13, 2019!
Life Lessons on a Sunday … was just thought of Sunday, August 5th! It’s actually a pretty cute story … I’ll share if you care to know:
My amazing niece, Cori, called me in a slight panic and said, “Jaime, I need you!”
Well, as you can imagine, I told her I was coming right over! Luckily, we live in the same small town, so I could be there in 5 minutes flat.
Let me give you a little back story on Cori … she is only 20 years old and already owns her own home!!! Yes, she’s THAT GIRL! She’s smart, talented, great with finances and has one hell of a head on her shoulders … I’m a super proud aunt if you can’t already tell!
And we’re back …
As I’m driving over, she is telling me that she just went down to her basement to start cleaning and organizing for a future room addition she has an idea for. Well, to her amazement, she could see light coming from the bottom of the basement door that leads to the outside and there were … SPIDERS!!! Ew, gross! She wanted me to help her figure out what happened and how we could fix it.
Once I arrived, she was understandably shaken with seeing spider webs and not wanting to go anywhere near them. I calmly examined the situation, took photos, told her to get her wallet and get in my car … we were headed to Lowe’s.
Side note: If you don’t already know, you will soon learn that I am the “take the bull by the horn” and “put your big girl panties on” kind of lady.
On the drive to Lowe’s, I am going through possible “teaching” moments that I can share with her, as I want her to always feel confident in any situation she comes across. I explain that I will help her ask the staff for recommendations, assist in selecting the materials, and then guide her in fixing the issue herself! She was all on board … UNTIL … I pulled out a POWER TOOL! Cori had never used a power tool in her 20 years, so I was thrilled to be her teacher for this project. After a rocky first few screws, she was drilling into that fiberglass door like she’s been doing this for years!
When she finished and successfully fixed the door herself … she had the biggest smile on her face and I think she stood an inch taller! She thanked me for helping and I told her it was just another “Life Lesson on a Sunday” … and that’s when she said: You need to share a Life Lesson every Sunday!
And that’s how it all began …
Shew … my mind and my pen have not stopped since the light bulb went off! I already have my first twenty-six topics (that’s half a year of shows!) for Life Lessons on a Sunday, but I would LOVE for you to share a Life Lesson that you’ve experienced or that you would like to hear from me! TELL ME HERE!
I’ll be honest, the first Life Lessons on a Sunday is a doozie … and I actually need to call my Mom and make sure she is okay with me telling the family “secrets”. Ha Ha!
