A beautiful Thank You received

Earlier on this year I worked on my first wedding along with stitching an Apache wedding blessing as a gift. Have just received this letter in the post, what can I say, it made all the time and effort worth while and this testimonial means the world to me, to know that I made a bride's day special:

'This comes with so much appreciation for the absolutely beautiful needle worked poem. We were amazed by your craftsmanship (once again) and the effort you put into such a special gift. As for beginning to thank you for all you did in terms of helping to prepare for our wedding ...... well where to even start? ...... All your work in everything you produced just showed how truly talented you are Caroline and just how much you put into every single thing you create. Everyone commented on the extra ordinary detail in each little treasure - from invitations, order of service, favours, baskets and little bags. Each thing was made with such care and attention. The horseshoe you created was stunning and I was delighted to walk down the aisle with in on my arm. Keep on with your crafting and don't give up even though times are hard. Hopefully you will be able to do more weddings and help create a magical day for another couple (many couples actually). Once again our wholehearted thanks for everything.'

Just receiving this has given me the boost that I needed to forge ahead in the New Year to believe that what I do is on track and that I can follow my dream and succeed.

A thank you does not cost anything (well maybe a card and stamp) but can make someones day. I always say thank you but in 2010 I am going to make sure that the recipient truly believes what I am saying and it is not just a reply given at that moment in time.

Have a very Happy New Year and Thank You for reading and showing an interest in my blog.
