I made a lady cry...
I sit here with my head in my hands not feeling good at all, I think the worst of me caught up with the best of me....does that make sense? Anyway, I think all this traveling and I just finished a two day show yesterday got to me. I have had a sore throat, cough and the aches all weekend and I lost my voice. It was very hard to talk with my customers, but I must say I met some of the most amazing ladies this weekend, vendors and customers. Yes, you read the title of my blog post correctly, I made a lady cry (not just one lady but actually two).
A women picked up my religious medal charm bracelet and looked it over and over and said she had to have it, she never buys herself anything and this she really wanted. She whipped out her money so fast and I put it on her wrist as she wanted to wear it. Then she said to me how she loved it so much and the tears started to run down her face...it reminded her of her grandmother so much and then she cried. I hugged her and she thanked me. My husband was sitting next to me with tears in his eyes. She touched my heart....and affirmed to me why I create what I do.
The next lady I met was named Brenda and she is a Gold Star Mom, she lost her son while he was serving our country, he was a Marine. She loved all my pieces that had a story to them....the ones with vintage or antique elements. She purchased three necklaces and would like for me to make a special piece for her someday with something that was her son's. She is president of the Gold Star chapter here in Tennessee. Tears flowed down her face when she said goodbye, she said we were destined to meet, and I do believe we were.
