We took a family/business trip this spring, right after school. We rented an RV, and pulled a small Uhaul trailer part way with Maple Syrup in it. We had orders of Maple Syrup in 4 provinces and 3 states, so we loaded up our trailer, and took some in the RV as well.
I even got my sign guys at Raynbow Signs to make up a small sign for the back window of the RV saying that we have Maple Syrup on board, and we sold quite a bit that way, too!
Well, a year ago right now we were in Florida! We flew to Orlando and, largely because I have a lifetime travel membership with Renaissance|Your Lifestyle Passport, we rented a townhouse in Davenport for a week.
Today I finished my favorite task of the year – delivering gift baskets to all our local elevator and farm customers! So in 2 days I traveled almost 500 kms. and delivered close to 60 Maple Syrup gift boxes!
It’s a wonderful thing to walk up to someone’s door, and give them something! Many of them say something like “You didn’t have to do that!” I love to reply, “No, I’m not doing it because I have to, I’m doing it because I want too!”
Love makes all the difference!
The Gift of Giving happened 2000 years ago, and we now can keep passing it on! Pointing to the Great Giver!
