Wisdom from a Hotel that’s both Exotic and Marigold

If you know me, you know I Heart Dame Judi Dench.  I first fell in love with her in “As Time Goes By” a phenomenal Britcom from the 90’s.   It’s funny and droll – full of that British humor I love.  It used to be my favorite thing to watch every Saturday night on PBS.   Yes, Saturday night.   In our house, every Saturday night was a Disney or Barbie movie, followed by excellent Britcoms after the kid went to bed.  Such is the life of a parent.

But, to my point, Dame Judi Dench is also in one of my favorite movies, “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”   (And, of course, its equally awesome sequel “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”.)  One of my favorite lines from BEMH is “Everything will be okay in the end, and if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”   I recently had to take this advice to heart when I considered a job change.   It caused me anxiety, to be sure, but I just knew everything would work out.

And it did.  I was hooked up with a new job the very same day I left the old.   I am thrilled with my new position, love my new team (not that I didn’t love my other team members) and in many ways this is a much better fit for me.  And I never had any doubt it would all work out.

“God never closes one door without opening another”.   “Worry is a lack of faith.”   “Everything will be okay in the end, and if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”    I believed them all.  And they werturbane all true.

Now I have more time with my daughter.  More time to knit.  I’m much happier.

And it’s not the end.  It’s a new beginning.

Oh, and here’s a new hat.   I suppose I shouldn’t forget that.

New hats with a new model!

I don’t have much to say, except that I am blessed to be able to work with such beautiful babies.  And that this beautiful baby is now part of my friend family.   He scared us out of our wits by trying to – and eventually – visiting us 2 months early, but he has grown like crazy and we love seeing his double chin and chunky thighs develop.   Quite a change from that little 3 lb baby that arrived in January.   He’s doing great and we are all so lucky to have him here!   And now I get to use him as a model at the studio and we are going to have so much fun!   He doesn’t know what he’s in for, but he loves his Aunt Kathi.  And I love him, too.   What a doll.
