Last month I sort of was losing my shit. (this is not uncommon if you know me). I’m very gregarious by nature, I tend to over-share (which for those of you who have been following this blog – this is no surprise), and I’m an introvert (this is a surprise to many). I can facilitate a workshop of people for hours on end, but dread small talk. I also live so passionately that I scare many people. And on occasion will suffer with terrible bouts of self-doubt and depression. My coping skills are vast however and I’m very proud of that.
I tell you this because last month as I was losing my shit, Roxi was patiently listening to me (I don’t know how much you all realize how much I love this woman) and she told me that we had received a letter in the mail. She went on to describe it. As I was listening to her, I thought “God love this woman. Making up this letter so that I will feel better!”
And then I got a packet of mail from her the other day (if anyone wants more info on how we manage to run this business – this is one of the ways LOL) and this letter was in it.
She didn’t make it up. It’s the real deal. So to that:
Dear Anonymous Friend,
Thank you. Thank you for taking the time to send this letter to us. I’m going to frame it and put it in the store.
I can’t begin to tell you how much this meant to me. I too believe that we are already a success. To read your letter however, was to have tangible proof of why I believe we are a success. Thank you.
(Also, I love that you used the term “train wreck” it’s one of my most favorite and delicious phrases)
p.s. This Monday was our second Rise & Shine Monday – this is our new thing! We love it! We open from 7am-1pm on Mondays only. (Tues-Fri 10-6, Saturday 9-4). It has turned out to be the best! I can’t think of a better way to start out your week then to drop by the store, get a little something tasty and greet the day with The Butter Churn. ❤
