Happy Thanksgiving from Kevin’s Quality Clothespins
The feast has been consumed. The dishes are done. The guests have left. Now here I sit with a full belly and a grateful heart. The gratitude does not come from the full belly tho that is part of it. It is a gratitude of having family, having friends, having work, having struggles and in the sloppy mess of all of that mixed together having a God that loves us unconditionally.
I am amazed at how far this idea has come and how many people have supported us along the way. I still remember the day that Hilary pitched the idea of making clothespins to sell. I laughed at her. Openly laughed. She has definitely had the last laugh. I am appreciative of the critics, as few as they are, for they have made the quality in Kevin’s Quality Clothespins go higher then I thought possible. I am appreciative of the first couple of rounds of customers who sent us money on blind faith for they fueled our drive to keep pushing forward. I am appreciative of the repeat customers for they remind me that something is working well and not to mess with the good. I appreciate meeting our people at the Mother Earth News Fairs for they remind me that while the clothespins are not huge the impact we are making in your lives is huge.
As you look around your world I would encourage you to find those small things that make your smile. I would encourage you to find those things that remind you that there is Someone bigger than all of us who loves you just as you are.
The holidays have always been my time to reflect on life and evaluate am I where I want to be, doing what I love to do, fulfilling what I was sent here to do.
Your support and encouragement has been a huge confirmation for my family that we are in the right spot at the right time. I am hoping that in the next year I can bring to you all of the ideas that are bouncing around in my head. Until then please accept a HUGE Thank You!! from my family to your family.
