The title of the song from 'Sound of Music' pops into my head as I sit to write about some of my favorite things. What inspires me the most and is my favorite thing about this business called JoJoSox? It's the people I meet and the stories they share.
A mother wrote me that her son has to wear leg braces, and this made people stare at him and avoid him. Once he started wearing our fun, cool designs, our socks became an ice-breaker! His mom said people began to look past his leg braces, and comment on his uniquely designed, colorful socks. He loved it! He now never goes out without them. How I love to see a smile replace sadness on the face of a child!
A friend wrote me who is battling cancer. "Yesterday I wore your socks for my MRI, and I had to take off everything to put on those blue scrubs. But, I kept on my socks (your bright blue peacock socks)! They were the one thing that I had that was my personality ... that was colorful ... that was fun ... that was happy ... and somehow that made it all seem less scary." Thank you for sharing, Cheri Brown Thompson. You made my day!
These are a few of my favorite things!
