quite a group.....

i don't know why, but i'm getting a kick out of this.

last nite josh called. he asked what was up and i told
him that his brothers and i were sittin' around discussing
shipping for bone sigh arts. and i laughed. it was 8:30
and my brain was still on it.

at 9:00 last nite, i emailed the hoodie guy a question,
assuming he'd get it in the morning, and he answered right
back.

what are you doin' still workin'? i asked him.
there for a big poster order, he was still goin' strong.
i joked about the life of a small business owner.

the nite before i found myself talkin' to a shop owner
around 9:00 about networking and the nite before that,
i was on the phone with a shop owner taking an order
around that time.

it's the time of year it just doesn't stop. which after
a really slow year, feels good.

but what i really am getting a kick out of is that everyone
i work with is also a small business owner, and also givin'
all they have to make it work. and we've all had one heck
of a year. so i'm watchin' people tryin' really really hard.

and i don't know what it is, but this morning, it feels like
such a tickle to be part of this group of people. people who
fight for their dreams, and people who work hard to keep them
alive.

i really love the people i work with. well, most of them.
there are some that are tight and tense, and really no fun,
and sometimes just downright selfish. they can get to me.
what's interesting is to watch who's making it thru. and what
attitudes affect what. this is a whole life study just workin'
with this group.

and this morning i really love it.

I subscribe to "StoryPeople" and this came through yesterday:

"Anyone can slay a dragon, he told me, but try waking up every morning & loving the world all over again. That's what takes a real hero."

It has been a tough year. And in the "dream" of opening a small little retail shop there wasn't the amount of work there is in the reality of actually living the dream.

But we get up each morning and love the world (and the dream) all over again.

that's my story (anyway) and I'm stickin' to it!!!!
