This holiday season is a special one for all of us here at The Truffle Cheese Shop. It's special for so many reasons that are both joyful and painful. We have lost loved ones and made new friends. For the most part, we are having a great time with our busy lives. On the other hand, our families are weighing heavily on our minds.
For me, Karin, one of my favorite parts of the day is working either at the retail shop or at the restaurant. I love helping customers, seeing children grow up eating great cheese, pouring glasses of Champagne for families celebrating the Holiday Season.
As stressful and busy as it can be working long hours, filling everyone else's stockings with sweets and treats, it can also be a happy distraction from everything else going on in the world. It is my hope that maybe we can be a happy distraction for our customers as well. Whatever happened in your day, your week, month or year, maybe stopping in for a nice cheese plate, a good baguette or a few slices of special Jamon makes the difference. I know it does for me.
This Holiday Season, be kind to each other. Linger by the door a few more seconds to help the next person. Send one extra card to a co-worker letting them know how much they mean to you. Maybe even hug a cheesemonger.
