Hello! My name is Beth! Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek!
My life changed dramatically on October 22, 2019. Even though my stepson (Logan) had dealt with epilepsy since he was 7 years old, I never thought through the reality that the disease could be fatal (for him). The seizures were becoming more challenging and at 22 years old, the final seizure occurred. Even being a nurse, it was an unbearable sadness, and I had not even given birth to this unbelievable man. Thankfully, with the love of family and faith, we got through the holidays and it was a New Year. We can feel Logan by our side.
But as many people say, I felt compelled to be something more. Logan was talking to me and pushing me in a new direction. He was mature beyond his years in spreading the word of helping others, being nonjudgmental and caring for all, including the environment. I wanted to be more like him. To carry on his legacy and build upon these principles of helping people – by helping people see how small changes can help you become the BEST you. Just like he did. We soon learned how much of an angel he was and the impact he left with all the amazing stories we heard for the first time. So, this wonderful new store was started to educate people about the eco-friendly benefits of cork fabric and all the items that can be made from cork. Helping the environment has become dear to my heart. Another important goal is to raise money for the National Epilepsy Foundation. Some products will not only have a positive impact on the environment but also on research and development for epilepsy. And lastly, it is place where people can go to learn and share more about the good of Logan. #LoveLikeLogan
My journey to get here has been difficult, but am proud of where I came from and all I have gone through. Plus, we all need to look forward and look forward to the future. We all have had tragic moments in our lives and how do we get through them? Loving each other. Helping each other. That is what worked for me. I will be here for you.
Oh – and how did I make it to this exciting new venture? One more thing. The name of my business is Hope’s Hidden Treasures. It is named after my mom, Hope, who passed away from colon cancer at the age of 40. I was only 13 years old and have missed her terribly ever day since, and especially now that I have children. But, I make the choice to live life the best I can day by day! And, unfortunately, have to get a colonoscopy every 2-3 years since I was 35ish! UGH! Thanks for listening and can’t wait to help you enjoy life more and becoming the BEST you! And purchasing purses or other items from cork with make you feel wonderful by helping the environment!
Thank you for being here with me!
