My two year old has recently learned to say “I love you,” and he has been saying it to everybody. Being around a toddler who is this openly affectionate means that we often have conversations with complete strangers, and sometimes we get to hear their stories. He said I love you to a woman just the other day, and it turned out that it was her birthday and she felt so cheered by this little bit of sweetness from a child she didn't know.
In our community of Showiteers, we know that there are many of you who are saying “I love you” to others, sometimes to people you don't even know that well. We hear stories of how you have shown up for each other in a pinch, from second shooting to providing gear for someone who's lost theirs. You support each other in your businesses and your personal lives, comfort each other through difficulty, and encourage each other through changes. Just as we hear the stories of others through our toddler's professions of love, we hear YOUR stories through the love you extend to each other.
This week as we celebrate Thanksgiving, we are thankful for this community, a community that is not just professional, but personal. We know that you mean a lot to each other and as we look back on this year that has brought many changes to Showit, we want you to know that your support and loyalty mean so much to us too. We continue to be excited about where Showit is going, from updates to the software (including the update that went out this week), to amazing local Showiteer groups, fun times at WPPI in a few months, and the blast we will have together at United next fall. We hope to see you and give you a hug soon. From our family to yours, thank you for being awesome, and may you have a Thanksgiving that is blessed and joyful.
