As I ate my oatmeal a couple mornings back, I was reminded of a commercial I'd recently seen. It was for a well-known oatmeal brand. The guy on camera urged me to "share my breakfast story" on their Facebook page.
'Come on,' I thought to myself. 'A story worth sharing about my breakfast? You've got to be kidding me!'
But it's everywhere now: People want me to share my story about how much my car and my oatmeal have changed my life. Companies are scrambling to get in on this "social media wave" and want my story to do so.
Unfortunately, for them, I don't have a great car story. I drive it. It gets good gas mileage. It does what I expect it to do. Same with my breakfast (well, except I don't drive my breakfast or fill it with gasoline).
As I took another bite of my oatmeal, you came to mind. You, and thousands of Sonlighters like you, have shared your Sonlight stories for years. Sure, our Facebook page may be a recent development, but Sonlight Moments have been around for a long time.
I'm here, not to ask you to share your Sonlight story, but to thank you for doing so.
Thank you! My mundane oatmeal breakfast reminded me just how much I love Sonlight.
