Change is something in life that is inevitable.  Even if you try your HARDEST not to let things “change” it’s all around.  Seasons, technology, age, life, death – constantly keep us on our “toes.” And..if you don’t embrace change – well, life can be tough.  For me – I always look at change as a new life experience.  Yes, it can be hard – but if you’re like me and tend to believe things always happens for a reason, then change can be exciting as well.

This week – my co-host of nearly three years, Peggy Malzacher, will be leaving NTV’s Good Life.  It is a show we helped develop from “scratch.”  Along the way – we have become very good friends – shared more than a few tears, laughs, frustrations, and joys during our time together.  It will be hard to embrace this change – as co-hosting the show with her came with such an ease.  Don’t get me wrong – we’ve had our share of disagreements too.  In fact, we couldn’t be more different.  But for some reason –  I embraced her differences – and always appreciated what she had to say. 

I TRULY believe in my soul – that God brought her into my life to help me fulfill one of my lifelong dreams.  It is because of Peggy that I am now a children’s book author.  Although I knew in my heart that I always wanted to write – Peggy helped me realize that dream could become a reality.  She gave me the encouragement I needed to take that leap of faith – and in the end, it was one of the best moves I’ve ever made.  I believe my Ella B. Bella books are just the beginning of something fantastic – and I have Peggy to thank for that. 

And now – God is moving her along to a different adventure – and will bring someone/something new into my life.  It’s a change I have to believe is happening for a reason.  Yes, it can be scary – but it can also be exciting as well.

So – farewell my friend Peggy.  I will ALWAYS remember what you have done for me.  I know we will be lifelong friends – of this I have no doubt.  Good luck to you with your new adventures – and don’t be afraid of change!!  🙂  Great things are on the horizon for you!!

    Wow, you are such a good writer – I don’t think you realize how gifted you are. Thanks for the kind words AND you are right, we are different but I too don’t mind our differences. Thanks Leslie!
