5 Years Later…

So I have sat down to write this entry at least 4 times. I just don’t know where to start.  The pain of losing my mom is as real today at it was when we said “Goodbye for a little while.” five years ago.   Has it become easier to deal with, yes… does it still hurt.. yes.

A good friend of mine told me the other day. “Would you rather have never met this person and not feel any pain or would you rather have loved this person and have this pain?”  The answer is simple.  It was a great loss but a great love!  I would rather carry the pain around with me everyday than to have never met my mother.

I know what she would say if she were hear.  Go.. live your life. Make me proud.  I know I am doing that but I feel like my grief is holding me back.  Is it time to let go of the pain I’ve come to cling to as a child clings to it’s favorite toy? I think so.  It’s time to remember all the good and cherish the memories that we made.  The emptiness will always be there but the pain… it’s time for the pain to fade.  Time for me to honor her with my life.. I will always miss you mom, until we meet again….

Your Daughter,



Balloons to Heaven with love!

And The Heart Stopped..

So I’ve been abset this past week due to one of the scariest situatuions our family has been through in a long time.

Last Monday night my brother’s heart stopped. My brother in law was able to preform CPR and keep blood pumping while paramedics rushed to their home.  Steve was taken to the nearest hospital and stabilized.  Upon further tests he was lifelighted to Texas Medical Center in downtown Houston. Steve had 2 tears in his Aorta.  He would need emergency surgery to save his life.  What the doctors did, still blows my mind.  They were going to crack open his chest, repair the two tears in the aorta all while freezing his brain to stop circulation.  

For 7 long hours our family gathered. We cried together, laughed together, but mostly we prayed together.  Steve was only 49 and we were not ready to say goodbye.  God is a miracle worker for sure.  Prognosis was it could take 24 hours to 2 weeks for Steve to wake up from the surgery, he woke up in less than 6 hours!!  He would be on a ventalator for a while, that came out 2 hours after he woke up.  He would be in the hospital up to 10 days.  He was released yesterday.  A short 5 days after the surgery.  He is able to walk, sit, feed himself, and is now at home resting.  The doctor said that once he opened my brother up, he had less that 12 hours to live. This is proof that God was there, using modern medicine to save his life.  His road to recovery is nothing more than God’s hand on Steve and healing him.  By medical standards, he should not have recovered so fast. Well, they don’t know my God!  He’s been working mircales for thousands of years, yeah.. He’s got this.

Thank you for all of those that messaged, called, texted, and prayed for my brother.  Our whole family got a reality check.  We lost our mom 2 years ago and the thought of losing Steve too was just too much to bear.  

We are truly blessed.  

Today would have been my mom’s 77th birthday.  Happy Birthday to you mom in Heaven.  It’s hard celebrating without you here with us, but I know you’re celebrating up there.  In the arms of our Savior Jesus Christ.

I pray for many blessings for you today. That you could see the hand of God as clearly as we have this past week.  Cherish these memories you have with your loved ones while they are still here.  You never know when the heart will stop.

Blessings upon Blessings,

Emily Dibrell

Addicted to Periscope!

One of my fellow Pink Zebra sisters started using Periscope a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been hooked from that point on!!!!! 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Periscope, it’s a recently launched Social Media platform thru Twitter. It’s taking the shareable moments to a whole new level!! Now you can broadcast live anywhere you are! Periscope is approximetly 5 months old and already has 10 million users worldwide. While this app is not yet available on Windows, you can grab the free app on Android or IOS. 

The weath of information running thru Periscope is amazing! I’ve personally gained almost 100 followers in less 4 days from my first broadcast!! Goodbye Facebook. Now videos called “scopes”are only saved for 24 hours, you have the option to save to your device and upload elsewhere. You can do private scopes, share other useres scopes on Twitter, and my favorite perk is the hearts! Yes I said hearts! During a live scope or playback you can tap your screen to give the user hearts. The more hearts, the higher your ranking!

Go check it out. It’s something new and exciting for those of us that are getting bored with Facebook, Instagram, etc!! 

Tell me what you think!!! 

Love, Emily


When You Feel Like Giving Up…

giving up quote direct sales network marketing

Giving up is easy. Pushing forward is hard. 

The last two years since I started my own Direct Sales business there have been countless times I was ready to throw in the towel. That’s it.. I’m done.. I can’t do this anymore, are just a few of the phrases that have come out of my mouth. Tears… Oh yeah. You can bet I’ve cried my fair share of tears over my business. People quit on me, someone said something ugly to me, I missed the promotion, things aren’t moving forward as fast as I want them to.  Does this sound familiar?  If so keep reading.

What if we were to have given up when times got hard? We can quit a job, move, but we can’t quit life. We still wake up everyday to a new sunrise. Life keeps moving forward. Time doesn’t stop. 

I’ve had a rough several years under my belt. Having my mother move into a nursing home, countless trips to the E.R., hospital stays, financial problems, hospice, and finally her funeral.  I’ve been dreaming about her every night lately. It’s hard to function when I wake. Reality comes back and I realize that she isn’t here. I’ve cried and begged God for a time out! Just a few minutes, make the clock stop. It never happens. 

When I feel like quitting God reminds me, the answers are always in his Word. Abraham never quit trusting God. Moses wandered the desert for 40 years. Esther went before the king to save her people. Paul was beaten and broken.  Jesus knew how He would die but still willingly went to the cross.  Throughout the whole bible are stories of amazing men and women who didn’t give up. King David wanted to.. He cried out to God day and night. He kept going and was richly blessed.  

So what do we do when we feel like giving up? A wise man once said,”Never quit on a bad day.” Read the bible, take the day off, take a walk, turn your phone off. When you’ve come to the end of your rope, keep hanging on. The emotion will pass. Then you try ONE MORE TIME.  How many people have quit without trying one more time? 

It’s been 2 years and I’m still with my company. I am grateful for my husband and friends who wouldn’t let me quit. Don’t let fear own you. Try one more time! Stick with whatever you are doing and give it one more shot. So many people quit when the road seems impossible. Not knowing they were SO close to their breakthrough. You have to go through it to get there.  Trust me my friends, it’s worth it.

So take a day off, go to a movie, hang with friends or family, anything besides what you feel like quitting. Then come back and give it one more shot. If you’re reason why is big enough, you’ll keep going. Just like Jesus did.

Blessings to you,

Emily Dibrell

Pink Zebra Reunion 2015 – Coming Soon!!

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for our 4th Family Reunion with Pink Zebra!! This will be my second one to attend since joining a little less than 2 years ago.  Last year due to Kenan’s work schedule, he was not able to attend Reunion 2014 in Nashville with me.  My brother and I took a road trip full of excitement together!  This year Kenan will be attending with me in the beautiful Texas Hill Country! This year we are only about 3 hours away vs 15 from Nashville.

I’ve been stalking the resorts website. Apparently the J.W. Marriot is an amazing resort with some pretty awesome reviews.  Saturday night, Managers and up will be in private workshops all day and headed over to Knibbe Ranch in the evening for entertainment, drinks, fireworks, and more!!  Sunday and Monday are going to be fun filled with our annual Paisley Awards.. Which is our version of the Grammys.. Top leaders will be recognized for their hard work.. Monday night our new catalog will be revealed! This makes me want to jump up and down while I write this, but I shall contain myself for now.

Getting to see our founders again is high on my list. We haven’t seen them since our a Jamaican vacation at the end of April. So it’s long overdue.  Reconnecting with my zebra family, meeting new zebras.. I cannot wait!!

Kenan and I have never worked a job where we get excited about events all the time. Maybe holidays and vacations.. Lol. With Pink Zebra there is always something wonderful to look forward too. After our fun filled Reunion, we have Rallies coming up in October and February.  Incentive trip dates will be released at reunion so we will also have that to look forward to. AND the location for next years reunion!

Want to join us on a tropical destination next year? What about 5 star resort for our next reunion? Get your tail in gear!! Join the Pink Zebra family! I warn you, the excitement is contagious!
