FAMILY… by definition: a specific group of people that may be made up of partners, children, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.

Most likely we are spending this time within the 4 walls of our homes with those that are our families by the definition above.  Hopefully we are all discovering more about each other and what brings each of us joy.  During the extraordinary time we are in, let’s expand that definition of “family” to include those that we have brought in our life by choice and that have been brought into our life by chance.  If you are like me, you are missing those you chose and those brought in by chance.

I received a beautiful gift this week from of my by chance/choice family members....a necklace symbolizing "Through Thick and Thin".   As I sat and thought about all the ups and downs Sarah and I have shared in the 15+ years working together, I realized that this current situation is just another roadblock that we will overcome together!    Our way of working may change, but our way of thinking (customer first) will not.  Standard Rule will continue to be there for our customers first...70 years later, that philosophy hasn't changed.

Remember to keep your heads high and your hands clean!
