Hello! Jack (aka "Hubbs:) here.
Tomorrow is Bev’s birthday (I won’t tell you which one, but amazingly we are only 1 year apart in age, and I’m the only one who looks his age!).
I wanted to share with you, all, the answer to a question frequently asked on her blog: “How does she get so much done in a given day?”
Well, I live with her, and I can give you my answer to
how she accomplishes
and balances so many things in a given day.
However, before I tell you, I must share with you that more impressive than HOW MUCH she accomplishes in a given day, is that she does all of it with QUALITY…
If you are lucky enough to have found her blog, you have all seen some of the manifestations of her commitment to Quality:
If you are lucky enough to be her guest, you will experience the Quality of a gourmet-like meal:
However, unknown to our guests, she prepares every meal, every day that way!!
So how does she do it, and with such style...
My best answer to how she produces so much high Quality in our every day is, that she cares so much. But why does she care so much? I believe that she cares so much because she Loves so much. Bev shares with all of us the deepest, most authentic, and soulful type of love I have ever seen…
So, if you are lucky enough to know Bev, you benefit from the glow of her love:
If you are lucky enough to be one of her animals, you get to experience the persistence of her love…
If you are lucky enough to be one of her grandkids, you feel the depth of her love
From Ashley, daughter-in-law and Mommie to Mack and Easton, (a few things she thought that Mackenzie and Easton would say if they were actually able to verbalize legitimate sentences!).
"We are lucky that Bev is our Grammie because:
She loves spending time with us and we love spending time with her too!
We love how patient she is with us and wants to teach us new things.
We love to visit her and explore the farm and visit with the animals.
She is always there to take care of us if we are sick and is our favorite nurse.
She makes delicious cookies and cakes!!!"
And from Mack and Easton's Daddy, Andy:
"As a parent of young children, I like to think of things that I can teach my kids as they grow older. They, and I, are VERY fortunate to have their "Grammy" in our lives as an example of some very important traits and life lessons that they can emulate. There are two traits that stick out in my mind about Grammy in particular:1. Grammy can do ANYTHING! - If she's never done it, not a problem. If she doesn't know how, she'll find a way to figure it out!2. If Grammy says she'll do it, it will be done! I have never met a person with more follow through... EVER!We all love you Grammy! Happy Birthday!"
If you are lucky enough to be close to her, you feel the breadth of her love:
From Bev's Mom Liz:
"Bev is the best daughter ever!"
From Bev's Step Mom, Missy:
"A lady with many talents and capabilities. Warm and caring, Bev is always there for friends and family to lend a helping hand no matter how busy she is herself. She is loved by all of us!"
If you are lucky enough to really know her, you feel the intensity of her love: Amanda says it well:
"Her middle name should be 'Real Talk.' She sees you, who you could be, and speaks directly to your potential. This kind of advice often makes you gulp down all of your pride, can be a pain in the a**, and causes some growing pains. But, if you listen, you end up wild and free, kinda like her! It's her magic!"
If you were lucky enough to be one of her patients, you learn the generality of her love:
|At 2 weeks post-op, I can now put on my own socks!|
If you are lucky enough to be married to her, you learn the immediacy of her love…that every fleeting moment in life exists because of love. So every day, in every way, she drags me out of my head and into the moment
where we can laugh and play.
So when you read her blog each day, I suggest that you try to see what is common to them all and what moves her to share them with you: Love…
So my answer to the question “How does she get so much done in a given day?"
With a love that just won’t quit…
