As you said, even better that you didn't even have to ask for it -- an unsolicited testimonial.  A surprise hug you weren't expecting.

Charita, Always a real good feeling to get a note like that after a transaction.  So many times I think what we do gets taken for granted, and those notes are a reminder that it's not.

I know Jean.  That's the really good part.

Thanks Kathleen.  That is kind of nice isn't?

Dick I am not even sure that clients realize just how big of an empact a gesture like that has.

Debbie it sure added to the "already" good day that I was having.

BLiz without question, people do take us for grant and sometimes we take for granted that we are not appreciate. When someone goes the extra mile to let you know how much they appreciate you, well that is just awesome.

Joni we are a pretty good bunch of bloggers are we?

Exactly Marte.  It just makes you want to keep doing what we do.

A lifer Nancy.  Definitely one to keep.

Carla it certainly highlighted my day and placed a grin on my face as well as a tearful eye.

This is lovely, Charita and not surprising.  But so many people don't take the time to voice their appreciation.  I am sure you will treasure this.

Brenda one thank you like this one makes up for a dozen of the worst transactions we sometimes have to deal with.

Jane I will definitely treasure it.  I think somebody don't realize how far such thoughtfulness will go.

Charita- Good for you. hopefully that will erase some of the challenging tasks and difficult situations in which you should have received thanks but the people failed to recognize you'd gone above and beyond for them.

I have always wondered if I should include a business card, what do you think? Some do not know what I do for a living.
