"Without change, there'd be no butterflies…" (Maya Angelou)
As I've aged, I've allowed change to unnerve me. My guess is that many of you aren't thrilled with change, either.
Recently, in the same day mind you 😊, a neighbor couple whom I don't know very well told me they were moving to Florida and my long-time trash company said it wasn't taking care of my area any longer. Two relatively unimportant things upset me. Really, Gail?
As a dear friend often remarks, "Nothing stays the same." But I want it to, dammit! Of course, there are many good changes – cancer moving into remission, buying a new home, welcoming a newborn baby into the family. But, even those good changes can sometimes be unsettling.
One of our 10 core values at TallGrass (and, yes, we work on these diligently) is "We practice balance and flexibility." Flexible instead of rigid. That's how trees and grasses successfully survive the wind and storms by not bending and breaking. So, my plan is to work harder at accepting change, not whining and dragging my feet.
One thing you can always count on that won't ever change is our devotion to awe and inspire our dear guests – and our staff, too. Please visit us soon and let us show you how!
Another constant is our annual project to help military men and women. This year, we are continuing our program to supply backpacks to homeless veterans. See details below and thanks in advance for your support!!
