Why Jill Is The Rock of Our Family
Happy Mother's Day, Jill!
Jill is an amazing mother to our kids, and she's also been there for the business every step of the way. With Mother's Day coming up, I wanted to highlight what makes her such a great mother and why she's so important here at Quality Plus Automotive Service.
First and foremost, Jill puts everyone's needs in front of her own. Whether at the company of with the family, and regardless of the problem, she's always there for us. If she's not familiar with a situation, chances are she knows someone who is. And there is no task she can't handle; she's determined to finish anything she sets her mind to. What's more, she's a great listener if you just need to vent. She's always helping our family and friends without even thinking about it. For instance, whenever our daughter-in-law needs someone to pick up the grand kids, Jill is the first one to volunteer, which is not hard for her because she loves the grand kids and is always teaching them something new. Another time our daughter needed something for a baby shower she was going to. Our daughter could have bought anything, but Jill wanted to make sure she was giving her friend something with a personal touch, so she crocheted some clothes for the mother-to-be.
She has a real talent for sewing and crocheting. One of our granddaughters is home-schooled along with a few other kids, and one time they wanted to lean how to crochet. After hearing this, Jill came in the next day to teach everyone! When our kids were growing up, she made their costumes for all the school plays and Halloween. Nowadays, she patches stuff for the family whenever someone rips their clothing. But that's not her only creative outlet. When Jill's not being the rock of our family, she loves playing the piano and organ, which she's played for our church for fifteen years. Jill even passed her gift of music onto our kids as our daughter is a piano teacher.
And I really can't stress enough how vital she is to the company. I wouldn't have been able to handle being a one-man shop early on if it wasn't for Jill. When I first opened the shop, I only wore two hats; dad and business owner. But Jill wore many: chauffeur for the kids, math tutor, housekeeper, chef, and mom. On top of that, she single-handedly tackled all the business finances.
So Jill, thank you for everything you've done and continue to do for our family. I'm so thankful to call you my wife, the mother of our children, and my business partner. I don't know where we would be without you.
Moms show their love all year round so I just want to also take the time to wish a Happy Mother's Day to ALL the MOTHERS out there whether you are a past, present, or soon to be Mom. May your day be filled with love, joy and laughter.
