Tears in My Eyes

I just received this email via my Treasured Heirlooms website and am so moved by it that I needed to share it with all of you.

This is why I "do what I do"!

I believe...'UREKA' is the word I would use to describe my elation as I browsed your website. For years, all of my creative impulses, love of antiques and heirlooms, and passion for creating little vignettes all around my home for as long as I can remember.

I've been searching for a way to satisfy and take advantage of this passion and gift I have for doing this type of work...and Your Cottage and Website, have given me the 'lightbulb' in my head. This is what I want to do!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to have/create/develop found heirlooms and special things, into wonderful pieces to gift and collect.

Sounds really silly, but I actually have tears in my eyes as I am writing this to you. Yes, I'm 50 and I'm certain the hormones are on escalators...but I'm also a woman who raised three kids on her own, and haven't had any formal education beyond high school. Options are limited for people with my lack of professionalism to be able to succeed financially and in many other factors of 'success', whatever that definition may be.

Now with my goals in sight, I can begin to develop my talent and passion and pursue my lifelong love of heirlooms, and use the creativity that God has given me.

Thank you, for what you do, and for speaking to me today, via the internet:)
