The Fountain at Smith's Drugs "We remember that it is our privilege to serve our community"
The Fountain at Smith's Drugs "We remember that it is our privilege to serve our community"

The Rutherford Weekly recently approached Smith's Drug Store with the intention of producing an article about the long life of The Fountain and it's 'secret for success' all these years. Mr. John Higgins, owner and pharmacist, referred us to Mrs. Susan Stewart who is the current manager of The Fountain. We presented Mrs. Stewart with a list of questions and her response was so thorough and compelling that we are publishing it verbatim.

What are you building?

I'm like most men--I enjoy finding some project to do around our farm so I can go to the hardware store and look at the power tools and other important things I need. One time I was building a wooden fence with a couple of gates. Of course that meant a trip to the store to look at hinges and latches.

Now I'm by no means an expert on hinges which means I was forced to do what most of us men dread doing--ask for help. The associate made it easy on me though. He offered. I figured it was less disgraceful that way.

So I tell him what I'm doing, give him the dimensions of the gate, and pick up a hefty size set of hinges and say, "I guess I need something this big."

"Oh no sir, Dr. Joey," he says. "You can use something much smaller than that. Small hinges swing big doors."

That's true about making a positive life, too. You probably think you have to do something huge during the holidays to be positive. Not really. Just change a small habit despite your hectic schedule and watch as your life swings better.

Listen to your life for what that small habit might be and make a positive life.
