Thank goodness!
The last couple of weeks have been challenging here at Giving Tree Jewelry. I share this with you, our customers/friends because I want you to know us, and know who we are, and what we are about. And sometimes, things happen that get us down. Its just real life, and it is a part of the journey.
They say that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" ... but I am not so sure about that!
Needless to say, the whole thing has been a very gentle reminder of what matters to us here at Giving Tree. First, and most importantly, it is the way we treat one another, everyday, and the way we treat YOU. It's running the best business we can, with integrity and love.
I just wanted to take a moment to tell the amazing people that come here and do this with me, 5, 6, 7 days a week, how special you are, how much I value you as people, and how much I admire the people you are. Deanne, Laura, Kristen, Matt.. thank you. I love you.
To the friends that keep me smiling and positive EVERY day- Meg, Tina, Ellen, Shelly, Linda, Keilana..to name JUST A FEW!. To Miriam, Michael, Dennis, and every single one of our amazing artists.. and to Mom. I love you so much.
We will perservere. Thank you for reminding me of what matters most.
Read this great quote today, which the glorious Jeanine Payer (a new mommy! wooohoo!) uses on one of her pieces.
It hit the spot.
"And there, in the depths of winter, I found deep within me.. an invincible summer" Camus
