TIMING IS EVERYTHING, AND I'M SORRY TO SAY, I HURT SOMEONES FEELINGS REALLY BAD FOR MY BAD JUDGMENT, I PANICKED AND DIDN'T STOP AND THINK FIRST ACT LATER...I ACTED FIRST THOUGHT LATER AND THE SAD PART IS THAT I PREACH THIS ISSUE TO THIS PERSON ALL THE TIME...ABOUT THINKING FIRST AND REALIZING THE CONSEQUENCES...AND ACT LATER...I BROKE MY OWN RULE...AND FOR THAT I'M SO SORRY....MEL
GOOD MORNING!!!! Well been thinking about a lot of different ideas that are going on . I just wish i could think about them after 6 am but ohhhh no it has to be at four in morning, first of all I like this blog because at four in the morning nobody will listen to me, not even my cat Lela... before I had to write every thing in journal now get on computer...much easier...with a cup of espresso coffee and ready to go....
There are things going on that are out of my control, and that worries me. I try very hard to look at things in different ways...and I really want to be fair about it but sometimes it doesn't matter how many ways I look at a situation it is what it is....it doesn't have my best interest at heart....so when that happens it's 4 am and I'm writing instead sleeping. Sometimes making some decisions that you might not want to make it's difficult, but sometimes if you don't make them it's going to be made for you...why give someone that kind of power...might as well do what it is that you need to do and get it over with...I am all about compromising, but most people have a problem with this word it's their way or the highway......I have a problem with that, unless it's done fairly....... you have to compromise but you can't ever compromise your dignity....your self respect...because that makes you who you are....ITS ABOUT CREDIBILITY, LOYALTY, AND TRUST...even if people think you are being unfair. Sometimes it doesn't matter how many different ways you look at a situation, the results are always the same...UNFAIR... so i guess i have a lot of work cut out for me today...nobody ever said it was easy, and it never is.....well thanks for listening..... Mel PS: I'M FINE
Yesterday was a really bad day, I'm hoping today It's going to be a good one, OK, I know sometimes I write on here like I'm writing to friends that I really know, and every time I make these kind of entries my friends will call me, worried about me...and for that I'm sorry for making u worry about me...that is not my intend...I guess I react very badly when I think I'm being taken advantage of.....for the people that know me they know it takes a long time for me to get to the point of me feeling that upset...but for the people that don't know me I know I must sound like a very difficult,and angry person, so for those people I will give you an explanation....
You see I am a very loyal , and trusting person.... In business, and in my personal life....so sometimes both in business and personally, I find it difficult when the same courtesy is not returned....I find that everyday there is someone that feels they have the right to test those qualities...I will do anything for anybody and all I ask that I.m treated with the same courtesy...
IS IT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND????? IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME IF YOU ARE A FRIEND, OR SOMEONE I DO BUSINESS WITH, IF WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT, I AM TRUSTING YOU.... (AND MORE THAN ANYTHING I HATE TO LOSE FAITH IN PEOPLE)
Unfortunately, you would think that I would not be so gullible, when you invest in people, you want to believe that they can be trusted, it doesn't matter to me who it is...because of these beliefs, sometimes I get burned......because I have come to the conclusion you can't think with your heart....I'm very passionate in what I believe, and what I do, so what does that mean???
Well it means that not everybody is loyal, and trusting, and It's very difficult for me to accept that, because those are very important qualities in my book...call me stupid, but if you don't have trust and loyalty, what the heck is there.....
So for the calls i received from my friends yesterday after I made the entry, don't worry about me, I am a big girl, and as you already know, I can take care of myself....and when I need you I know you are there for me...and I appreciate that more than you will ever know, you have pulled me through some very tough periods in my life, and I value all of your loyalties, and your support....and i know you want to protect me ....so thank you to all of my friends that care about me... and for the readers, thank you for listening...MEL
Well i can honestly say this is the worst day that i have had in a long time since Christmas ....it's been maddening, DISAPPOINTING LIKE NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE!!!!! aggravating to no end!!!! really bad day I'm glad I'm working tonight at my new part time job (at another time i will tell you all about it) it will keep me out of trouble!!! I REALLY NEED THAT TODAY!!!!!!
some days doing my job is easier then others....today was a very emotional day ta...for lots of different reasons....anybody that knows where our shop is located you must know how hard today is.....but have to deal with it.....be supportive, and understanding, it's really hard to remain professional, and not emotional, when there are people that are dealing with lots of grief...wish could take the pain away....but all you can do is listen....unfortunately i can relate to lot of these individuals, and it hurts really bad....i know lot of you won't understand this post...but please know i appreciate you listening....Mel

I can't believe IT'S ALMOST HERE, VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!! I know it is a crazy week for florist shops but you know what I LOVE VALENTINE!!! ROMANCE, ROMANCE, ROMANCE!!!!!
It's my one of my favorite Holiday!!!! but of course with me EVERYTHING is about romance!!! I know lot of people will tell you it's silly!!!of course i will never agree!!! romance is one of those little perks in life that with one little gesture can make someone happy!!!!! It's such a simple thing to do I don't understand why it's so frequently ignored....Me personally romance is essential every day...It can't be just on Valentine's Day (maybe its the business I'm in, no it's always been important) It doesn't have to be so complicated like people like think it is....A walk on the beach under the stars, a card just because, a picnic in a park, little message just telling that special person how you feel, candle light dinner, with favorite bottle of champagne, candle light evening just talking w/soft music dancing to your favorite tune it doesn't have to be a Big Deal, surprising that special person with something they aren't expecting....ah ROMANCE it's sure makes the heart feel good......I know I'm being silly but without romance what is there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's all those little acts that make life intresting, no matter when it will come to mind, IT PUTS A SMILE ON YOUR FACE!!!!!!!
Hi everybody... Well all in all it was a pretty good week at Morning Glory, preparation for Valentine are going according to plan...that is a good thing!!!!good week for bridal consultations....I Love doing consultations.....I get to talk to my brides and share in preparations with their upcoming wedding, and helping them decide what designs for bouquets and centerpieces would make their day even more spectacular it's so much fun...I LOVE IT...it's the beginning of the journey that brings me to their wedding day where I get to actually design their wedding flowers....for me as a designer of course THE BEST PART....well the best part actually is when my bride and groom and their families see what they chose to REALITY!!! That is an amazing feeling!!! to know that you had a small part in making their wedding day even more special...and to see their faces with happiness in what you have created there are no words to express how it makes me feel....well there are but it would take all day to tell you....most of my brides might have pictures, or ideas of what they like, but most of the time I have to sell them my visions, that I can only see in my head...i do a sample of a centerpiece...but really how can they really see everything that's in my head???That is why it's so important for the brides to choose a florist they can trust, and make that professional, and personal connection with...It's so very, very, important because, i don't have just a consultation with my brides I encourage them if there is anything that they need to discuss or change, come in and see me...anytime, bring in the mom, or the fiance', and we will go over things, this was the kind of shop I dreamed of having, where regardless if you are a bride or a regular customer, or just somebody going by the shop and you want to check things out, I love being part of someones dream coming true....it doesn't matter if it's just a wrapped bouquet...but that wrapped bouquet is going to make someones day a little happier...and to me THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!!!!! Everybody always says what a special gift I have with designing....and I believe if It is a gift then it was given to me for a reason, so I could share it, and that's what I'm trying to do....Everybody has their own special gift, I Am So Lucky to be able to share it with anybody that walks in to Morning Glory....I Feel Blessed....Thanks for listening Mel
