At last, my long absence explained

Hi friends, I'm sure some of you thought I fell off the planet, but I'm back!  I've been here all along, reading your posts and blogs and gathering as much info as I could on building your own business from scratch!  And so now here I am, Sew Have Fun has grown into the real deal, storefront and all.  It's been quite a journey, one I'm not sure I would want to repeat, but some of it, yes, and of course hind sight is 20/20 so are there things I might change. 
So here we are, I'm in my store, waiting for customers who love sewing as much as I do!  A few have been trickling in, I'm waiting for the flood!  Just like Noah, but I hope I don't have to wait 100 years.
Here is a great list I'd like to share.
Everything I need to know I learned from Noah

Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark.

Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.

Don't listen to critics. Do what has to be done.

Build on the high ground.

For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

Two heads are better than one.

Speed isn't always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.

If you can't fight or flee--float.

Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth.

Don't forget that we're all in the same boat.

When the doo-doo gets really deep, don't sit there and complain--shovel!

Stay below deck during the storm.

Remember that the ark was built by amateurs & the Titanic was built by professionals.

If you have to start over, have a friend by your side.

Remember that the woodpeckers INSIDE are often a bigger threat than the storm outside.

No matter how bleak it looks, there's always a rainbow on the other side.
