I have wanted to sit and tell you about all the incredible things going on in our lives right now with this business. (I’d tell you about all the stuff not about this business if you’d like but that might be too much too soon!) We have so many people come up and offer their hands in support that it has become almost impossible to wrap our minds around it all. Just last night, or rather, yesterday afternoon, we had an “open house” for some family and friends who have helped out with various stages of this venture so far. It was simply our way to say, “Let us serve these special people first before anyone else.” We tried to thank everyone but pretty much just stood there and mumbled and cried for a few minutes and some discernable words were understood but not much else. Honestly, it was mostly understandable but there was a lot of crying going on. We have been so blessed by so many people so far! It has been amazing to see people come into our lives that we never knew before and offer to help in ways that were SO needed. Thank you all!
Today is surreal. It is the day before we open something we have dreamed about for years. We should be scared to death – at least I think we should be – but we aren’t. We should be as nervous as a long-tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs – but we aren’t. It is so crazy! We had an owner of a very successful Henry County business tell us last weekend, “You don’t look nervous or tired enough to be about to open a business.” (or something loosely interpreted like that) Trust us, we ARE tired but we are super excited about what this business can mean for so many people. Thank you for making this a reality. We are so very thankful we get to do this.
So I am posting and Alicia is working on getting ready for tomorrow….. when she finds out, I’ll be in trouble. Don’t tell her, please. 🙂
My phone just went off again with a “please bring me this too” text.
