As we’ve said before, we couldn’t do what we do without the people who surround us and this week was another reminder of that.
This week some of our work was interrupted by some very special guests. Even though it was a less productive week work-wise, our hearts were filled and our souls were nourished by their visit and we realized just how much they have influenced our values for Peartree and our lives.
Jamie and Rob are not only family, but they are also treasured friends of ours. They were some of the first people to really introduce us to simple living. They have a small apartment with not many things. Everything in their home serves a purpose or has special meaning. When you gather around a table with them, you take special care in each bite, appreciating every bit of the meal. They have shown us how to be intentional with our conversations and to say what we believe. They stress the good things in life and encourage you to do the same.
It’s been a wonderful couple of days spent with Jamie and Rob, and now they embark on their own adventure. These next few weeks they will be biking across the Maritimes. We wish them the best of luck and look forward to their return at the end of their trip!
