...you don't have to even wrap it...




"We were sitting in the studio this morning, each with our own cup of coffee or tea, looking at stacks & stacks of boxes & unpacked orders. YIkes. We probably should’ve been perfectly frantic & anxious… 

But suddenly the light came in just so & you could see the steam rising from the cups, almost like a benediction. Even Bing Crosby in the background singing Mele Kalikimaka was like a prayer of thanks. We all knew there was more than enough work to keep us busy until February of next year, but it felt more important to just sit there in that moment quietly & breathe & be grateful.

Grateful because we get to work with people we love, sending stories we love out to the whole world. Grateful beacuse we get to work with people who remember what’s important. Enjoying the moment. Doing happy dances now & then. Having chicken soup for lunch. Seeing these beautiful faces almost every day…

We want to take a moment to thank you all, too. For giving us a chance to do the work we do. For giving us a chance to love the world our own way.

& we hope in these next days, you take the time to enjoy the moments that show up in your life unexpectedly. Like the dance of steam from a coffee cup in sunlight. Or a child happily drawing at the kitchen table, humming their own rendition of Jingle Bells. Take time to see the faces of the people around you & remember that we’re all doing our best to love the world in our own way.

It’s one of the things we like to remember in this Season of Light…

with love from us all,

The Crew at StoryPeople

P.S. It’s easy to forget when you start running around getting that last minute thingy, but really truly, one of the best gifts you can give the people you love is to take a moment & put your arms around them & tell them exactly why you think they’re a fabulous human being. It’s something they’ll remember long after these days pass.

& just to be completely practical, you don’t have to even wrap it…:-)"

with love, us

So love the words of the Storypeople today. Very moving. And the subtle shadows in your photo beautifully complement them.

I agree wholeheartedly! They Do indeed keep the feet grounded so that we can soar. And, they remind us that we can soar!

Merry Christmas!
