Dear Vitamist Family,
It’s already February and as many of you know, my birthday is on the 5th. It also is the same day our co-founder, my husband Joe, passed away. It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years. It feels like yesterday! His passing affected not only my life, and my family’s lives; it affected this company along with the lives of everyone he came in contact with.
The passing of my husband, combined with Valentine’s Day right around the corner makes February the month I reflect upon the beauty and mystery of love and romance. They can be the easiest things in the world, or they can take a world of effort. Even in those hard times, though, the effort you put in is well worth it. As Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…” So very true, and applicable to everything in our lives.
So work hard at building up your romance, the love you have for your family, and even the love you have for your work. You won’t have to wait long to see that hard work pay off.
“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” -Judy Garland
