Wow! It's Thanksgiving! Time sure flies these days. I've got a bunch to be thankful for, how about you?
1. My car(s) still run. One is old enough to vote - if it had a conscience. The other is "only" 13. I'm thankful we have a good mechanic and that they have been amazing cars.
2. It's mid November and I have yet to break out my heavy winter coat. I'm still wearing my rainy mix spring/fall coat! Woot! Woot!
3. My Grandparents are doing well right now. And everyone in my extended family is currently healthy.
4. My sis is doing well, happy, healthy. She's my sis, so I know that that's a big deal!
DYNT has taken recently. Slowly, but steadily, people are starting to understand why I find it so important to buy American when I can, to support Fair-Trade organizations, and to be concerned about the impact a product makes on our world. I struggle each day to purchase and carry items that are high quality, yet fit these standards. Why? Because I believe that every creature is important to the Creator. That means, to me, that I support my neighbors, be they here in the US or abroad. I also believe that tending to the care of all creatures means thinking about the impact something has on the Creation as a whole. Is it sustainable? Is it harming an Eco-system? Is the manufacturing harmful to someone? Not all of these questions can always be answered positively in one product. But by thinking through my decisions, I often feel "comfortable" with the answers I can find. I'm thankful that each day I find new and exciting products to share with you!
I'm also thankful for the up-coming move. Each day brings me more reassurance about my decision. I'm not happy about leaving the city of Butler, and I'm sorry to possibly loose a few of my currently loyal customers. But I've started to think on a grander scale...I'll still be in Butler County. This move may be "bigger" than the picture I can currently envision. Stay posted.
