"Thank God every morning when you get up, that you have something to do that day which must be done, whether you like it or not.

Suddenly, everything was happening all at once and I found myself swept in a persistent maelstrom of deadlines.
Seemingly out of nowhere, our studio just boomed.
My husband and I were rendered a tad blindsided by the huge onslaught of projects, and we valiantly fought to face the challenges brought by our clients. For weeks on end, our calendar was blackened out by pencil-marked shoot dates and pre-production appointments. Our phone rang off the hook. Our crew heroically worked overtime after overtime with us.
And there, right smack in the center of the chaos, stood our super-hyper-energetic-strong-michievous toddler son determinedly out to prove to his bewildered parents what "terrible" in age terrible two really means.
Ah! It is no wonder we forgot what a lengthy sleep felt like.
ow, we still are very busy. Our schedule (and son) remains insane. But we have gotten more used to the pace and have made the necessary adjustments to allow us to work more efficiently.... and happily.
Never have we felt more fulfilled and blessed. Our venture is prospering, our studio is gaining recognition, our fervent prayers are being answered, our big dream is coming true. All the blood, sweat and tears that we have put into our business is at last paying off.
We are on our way.
Oh, and one more thing.....
