I must apoligize to those whom I have offended in my careless remarks. I had no idea that they would be taken as an affront to the people whom I care for, or the profession itself. Please understand me: I do not direct any "disrespect" in using such terminology to the patients themselves, and would certainly never refer to my job in such a way in front of them; neither do I intend those words to be disrespectful, only humorous. Regardless, that does not negate that fact that I do refer to NAs as such, even though I was only attempting to make light of a sometimes difficult job. I do have a very high regard for those in and out of the church who do this job much better than I, more patiently and graciously. Even though I may have a hard time with it, and maybe deal with it too flippantly; it is not appropriate to give any appearence of evil in my attitude. I will be more wary of how I portray my feelings towards my job, especially in such an impersonal way as the internet, where my true attitude may come across askew. Again I apoligize for my rudeness and impropriety, and I appreciate your loving rebuke and encouraging thoughts. I will seek to be more content with the calling that God has given me at this time and remember that I am not serving mere man, but the Son of man.
In regards to the other comments; no, im moving farther from albany, more towards where the Prices live, about 5 minutes from where i am now. and the dresses run a large range on pricing. starting out, im charging a bit less that what the competition charges, but hope to charge more as i gain more experience and have better quality. just to give you an idea though, a skirt would probably be between $30-60 (USD) and a dress $50-80, depending on the detail of the patches, pockets, applique, etc.
thanks for your support! i hope i will find time to bang out a ton of clothing so we can ge tthe site up and going.
