Letter of Gratitude
What a wonderful time of year this is; when our hearts turn to focus on all that we have to be grateful for. This year my heart is especially full as I reflect on everything I am thankful for.
For the past five years, I have had the pleasure to meet and work with so many incredible people. To have a job that allows me to spend my days doing what I love, with people I adore, is a blessing I wish everyone could experience.
I am filled with gratitude for all of our amazing and loyal customers that inspire us and allow us to sit side-by-side, painting, working, laughing, bonding, and celebrating events and milestones, both big and small. You each bring such joy to us and have shaped the company we are today.
For our 61 franchisees/studio-owners, my heart overflows with gratitude. I love working with you to make your dreams a reality. I truly value what each of you do. Being able to help others spend their days doing what they love is why I continue to be thankful for the opportunity to do what I do.
I’m grateful for each of the communities we are honored to serve and be a part of. I’m grateful for those who sacrifice to protect our communities and our country. Through our Paint it Forward division, we were able to raise tens of thousands of dollars to benefit local and national causes and charities this year, and plan to continue our work giving back.
With the recent events going on in our world, and the added stress this has brought to all of us, I am grateful that we can all come together to create beauty and bring laughter out of tears and heartbreak. It really is so much more than painting at times, it’s about community, collaboration, and joy.
This week, I will be thinking of each of you and praying that you have time to reflect on all that is good and beautiful in our families, in our communities, and in our world.
