Fun Amish Fact:  Last Tuesday we had friends in town visiting us from the Chicago area.  Six ladies from one of our fine furniture retailers joined us for the “grand tour” of our Amish workshops in northern Indiana.  At the first stop we visited Larry & Meredith Miller (cabinet maker) where we were treated to buggy rides around the countryside.  I was reminded of the simplicity of life the Amish enjoy.  Life slows down when you’re buggy is pulled by a horse as opposed to speeding along inside an automobile with a multiple horsepower engine.  As we slowly rode by neighboring farms it was enjoyable to relax and enjoy the journey.  The Amish appreciate the fact that life is a journey, not a destination.  Perhaps there’s something to be learned there…
