Gratitude turns what we have into enough.
— Melody Beattie
This issue is one of the most special issues we ever published. In the16 years Pink and 12 years Paisley have been in business, this month was the first time I truly did not know if we would be able to go to press. In fact, I wasn’t sure if we would be able to go on at all. We have been through hard times—the economic down turn and Hurricane Matthew, but Covid-19 is the worst yet.
Going to press is something I am not taking for granted this month, or ever again. These magazines are more than a business, they are a passion. I gave birth to both of them from an idea, and I have had terrific staff throughout the years who believe in the mission, and together we all make it work.
