WORKING at HOME -- What took so long ?

I am going to be celebrating my ***ONE*** year anniversary working from home next month! I am soooooooooooooo glad that I ran across this WONDERFUL oppurtunity. I just wish I would of known about it years ago!
When you search for a company to work with from home, there is nothing wrong with being skeptical. I actually highly recommend that you are! When you are looking at a company, be SURE to check into all thier credentials, history, check them out at the BBB and whatever other homework you can do.
Also, make sure that it is something that you will enjoy every single day!!! I dont look at what I do as a job by ANY means! I am sooooooooooo passionate and excited about what I do that when I get up in the mornings, I can't get to my computer quick enough! I love it and that makes every single day worth it! Right from the begining I set goals for myself and I have been reaching them!!! Set goals and never never never give up. I know that all I have to do is simply do what is important each day and every day, I am one step closer to my next goal !!!
Also find something that keeps you excited and enthused at all times. I went from a blah blah blah type situation to maybe being a work-a-holic! lol If you love what you do, it makes everything soooooooooo much easier to deal with in life!
Now, my husband works with a major bread company here where we live and he too is just as excited about what I do, that he plans to retire at the age of 44 from his job and come home to do this with me.

Goals - Surgery - Work - Life - ETC

Talk about a roller coaster of emotions.
Well, in building my business, I have reached another goal. I will be waiting for the "officia" word from the corporate office sometime within the next week or two. It's a wonderful feeling to set goals and watch them unfold. But, I made it happen. That is one of my quotes that I always say to those that I work with is to "Make it Happen"
No one else can do it for you......... you can have support and training and resources to help, but only YOU can do what it takes to accomplish your goals.
I am sooooooooooooo very happy and excited about it. It's going to increase our income and keep us going for the next goal, which I hope to reach at least by May. It's so amazing. I never knew that you could REALLY work from home and REALLY do something that could TRULY change your life. It's very...over-whelming. I just wish I would of known about this years ago. I could be exactly where I want to be right now! However, I will count my blessings that it has happened and will continue to happen. There are some wonderful people in my life that has helped me build this business and I've never met them face to face. It is the truth........... that you never really know what or who is going to come into your life and influence it and change it. It's so even scary to think that I could of said no, or been too afraid to take the chance...... I can't belive how decisions that you make in life can affect you for the rest of your life. WOW ----- definately want to be a careful decision maker and not jump the gun too quick or assume anything. Everything should be completely thought out so that you make all the right decisions in life.

As for the other part of my roller coaster of husband is going to have surgery tomorrow. For whatever reason, I am really scared about it. I have been so busy working, he has been so busy working and now this fear has set into me that I am so scared to have something go wrong. 1 out of 200 of these surgeries can go wrong. What the heck does that mean.......what increases or decreases your odds. It's a double edge sword. He can't NOT have the surgery because he has been living in very excruciating (sp) pain for a very long time and having to take meds just to function. So, he can't keep living with this pain....however, I can't live without him.
He is exactly the reason that I am where I am, and who I am........
Over 20 years of being together now....... its gone by so fast. 100 years wouldn't be long enough......
Well....... ok, I need to just set my fears aside and wait and hope.
