The GodMutha Speaks

THis is so funny that I am giving you so much advice that I have decided to post it to a blog for the benefit of my own website
I figure well-let everybody else benefit from my many years of ancient wisdom-LOL.
We have been involved in so many restoration projects that I feel like I am an expert on the subject so why not! Right now we are in the midst of restoring a hurricane damaged restaurant that was foreclosed on that it was in such bad shape that nobody wanted it until......we wanted it.....then we had 3 bidders against us and so we bought it with very little knowledge of how very much work truly needed to be done...we are just now coming to that realization and it is a test ofeverything we have financially and physically (as we do have a backhoe and dumptruck) as to what we can me that buggy was like a a peice of cake compared to what we are going thru right now....Had we known that we would be doing projects of this magnitude after all these years-we would not have beleived it!. It is truly a test of your ability to cope with stress, caused by money worries, partner disagreements and general neglect of everything else that is important when you take on "A Project" of any kind no matter the size.It takes a really strong relationship and strong leadership that is focused to get thru each project and finally finish it.When that buggy was finally done years ago - I was in tears because of all that we had done to to get to that point. Just remember that the projects that you choose will not only test your own endurance but the endurance of every member of your family for years to come. It will affect how you treat them, react to them, and how they treat you. So choose your projects wisely. And realize that sometimes YOU are the only one that cares to see it gets done. That way you can understand everyone elses reaction to it and how sometimes they don't seem to be getting anything done at all.
So choose your Projects wisely my child and do not begrudge others for not following suit.
