A Love Letter to My Business

** Note from Diane:  I wrote this in 2009 (seven years ago!) for Valentine’s Day. I like to revisit it every year around this time, and I think it is relevant enough to be posted again. Enjoy!


Dear Business,

I just wanted to tell you how I feel about you for Valentine's Day. I am passionate about you. I think about you all the time. You bring me joy, you give me courage, and you help me to jump out of bed in the morning.IMG_3618

We have been together a long time now.

Sometimes, it is hard for other people to understand the love we have for each other. It can be overwhelming, even intimidating.

People wonder how we manage . . . how we make it work.

Now, I know we have our challenges. I get cranky with you sometimes. It is hard to see you struggling. I get nervous when you are too busy and we aren't spending enough time together or when our time together isn't quality time. I know I frustrate you when I repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

But the most important thing you need to know is that I am never going to leave you. I am devoted and committed to you. I love you; you are a part of me. Our relationship will change as we grow and learn. We will age, and life will change. We will weather the storms together. I promise you this.

I am committed to you!

In fact, I thank God for you every day. I am blessed by how much He must love me to give me you as a gift. I do not take that for granted.

So, on this day that is all about LOVE, I want you to hear my heart: I love you!  You are my sweet spot, my favorite thing, my heart's desire.

Your beloved,
