If Peter Pan and Tinkerbell didn't already have dibs on this, we might have snagged it for ourselves at Evergreen! It perfectly describes the foundation and daily operations in our little slice of paradise!
First and foremost, we know that all of our Blessings come from God. It's trying during this first phase of our business some days to keep the Faith that we will grow into a strong and prosperous company, but we Trust in God's plan. We say a little prayer of thanks for each order that comes in and say a little Blessing for each order as it goes to each of our customers - may you all be Blessed!
Like most sisters, we have our share of squabbles, although thankfully they are much less frequent now that we are older. :) But, knowing each other as we do, we decided from the very beginning to divide duties according to our strengths and to keep them separate as much as possible to avoid stepping on toes. And I must say, it's worked out so much better than either of us anticipated! We each have complete trust in the other's abilities - even when we don't always have it in ourselves. I can't tell you how many times Kari's encouraging words and faith in my abilities has gotten me through tough projects that were filled with self-doubt. Think I will get her pom-poms for Christmas - she is the best cheerleader ever!
And while it's good to have Faith and Trust, sometimes you close your eyes and take a leap and rely on Pixie Dust! I probably shouldn't confess to you how many jobs I have said "Yes" to that we actually had no idea how to do - lol! One of my colleagues refers to it as the Sphincter factor - haha - I prefer to envision Tinkerbell and all her friends flitting about our studio sprinkling glittery, magical Pixie Dust! Thanks for always helping our projects turn out just right! Whew!!
