Everybody loves a good story. Even when you are sitting around a table listening to a group friend tell about the time their kid drew the Mono Lisa on their boss’s car in permanent marker, you are enjoying the story.
We often think of stories as an experience that we are told about or read. But everything in life is a story unto itself. What is your story?
Some of the stories of our lives will be forgotten, but some will be a huge part of us forever. Think about the day you got married. Remember that story? Do you share it with others? How about your first car? Your first job? Your kids? How about your home? The place you live is always a huge part of your story.
At Elliott, we get to physically build something that will play a major part of someone’s life. They will live there, make memories there, and raise kids there. So as you look at that neatly compiled assembly of wood and stone, do you see a house? Or do you see a blank slate, waiting to tell a story?
Here at Elliott we have an amazing opportunity to help tell a phenomenal story. The story of the St. Jude Dream Home is a powerful story, one that affects the lives and stories of people across America and for years to come! When you help tell it in any way, you are not helping build a house, you are writing a story. Take pride in that.
