This weekend's Open House was a huge success despite all the drama of not moving at the last minute. I could not have pulled it off without the most wonderful group of friends and supporters I have ever known. Kay, Claudia, Ron and Keith, Amy, Cheri, Yvonne and RoLynn and, of course, Alan. You all were there, despite having deploying sons, major surgical procedures, ninja turtle body braces, horrible divorce issues, driving hours to get here, taking days off from your own work and cheerfully staying 'on hold' to move heavy furniture and then moving it back, packing, unpacking and then restacking shelves, bringing me coffee and a smile, words of encouragement and hugs and so many seemingly little things that are so meaningful to me. You all nurtured me and pulled me through, and away from what to me, felt like the jaws of death. (I said it was my drama!)
And I cannot ever say enough about the faithful and supportive customers who came out to rally and brought or sent all their other friends to the shop, too. The words thank you, just do not cover it.
Namaste! I am humbled by your sheer 'goodness' and generosity of spirit.
