Happy February Modesto Friends!

Greetings Modesto Friends,

I love February! Why you ask? Valentine’s Day? Spring Skiing?
No, both of my Murphy girls are born in February. That makes this month more special than anything. Happy Birthday Madison and Abigail. Your mom and I so very proud of you.

There is something beautifully cathartic about February. January sits under the haze of the New Year and people are still battling their resolutions. In February, there is freedom to get shift into the new year gear, start new things, make changes and learn how we need to operate in the crazy new world order. It is up to us, our friends, our family, our workplaces and our community to rally together to make sure we are doing the things here to make this our home. It is so very important for us to live local and be strong and connect with each other.

Which gets us back to romance, love, Mardi Gras and President’s Day.
Abraham Lincoln and George Washington represent the best of the American Presidency. These are the ideals we must stand for. Which gets me to love. We must love the different people of the world like we love our own families. This makes our family and friend units all the more important. Which leads to romance. I love my valentine Rebecca more than ever and my Abigail and Madison make my heart warm with love and pride. Make sure you tell your significant others how much you love them. It doesn’t have to be on Feb 14, it should be everyday. Which brings us to Mardi Gras. This wraps all of this up into one amazing celebration. Fun, family, friends, food, frolic, festival, and French-American culture and music are all rolled up into one fun time. Lassaiz Les Bon Temps Rouler.

All you need is love. It is really so simple as a guiding light, and John Lennon was pointing out the obvious. But if you let this be your outlook, then you will do great. Do the things you love, love where you live, love each day and most importantly, love yourself, and you will be ok.

I really do love living here. I love working here. This is really what it is all about. Thank you to all of the people and places that make it good to be here. Thank you to the Modesto Chamber of Commerce for the wonderful honor of awarding our company Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group and ModestoView as the 2017 Chamber Member of the Year, we have an amazing team. We are doing what we love and are so very glad that we can operate a business, give back to the community and help make it better for our families and yours. This is what happens when we live local and have great friends. I wish you a great February of friendship, fellowship and fortune and fulfillment.

Thank you
Chris Murphy
Founder / Publisher of ModestoView. CEO /President of Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group<>
