I can’t thank my downline and my customers enough!
Today I received a package from Stampin’ UP! with my travel papers for the grand vacation Peter and I are able to take because of all your support.
It really is going to happen and we still can’t believe it. But, getting the first gift of the trip is making it more real!
This is what they sent: a beautiful leather clutch filled with all kinds of paperwork including tickets, luggage tags and a book that I am trying to memorize! It describes in detail what will be going on each day of our cruise. The clutch has a post mark on it with the name of the trip and the dates, it’s soooo soft and it has that wonderful new leather smell! (I may have to sleep with it tonight!)
I just finished getting ready for my Sale a Bration class that will be starting in about 6 hours, but, wanted to write down what I was feeling before trying to sleep!
For the first time we have passports and now we really need to think about getting some proper attire for this trip of a lifetime! Dressy for me is a pair of new black jeans! I’m thinking that may not fly on this cruise. I will begin shopping and getting clothes from my sister Marlene this week end!
I really can’t even describe how I feel. I know that many people go on fancy vacations and travel all around the world, but, we just don’t do that! When we were both working we always spent our vacation time in Oklahoma where my oldest son and his family lived. We are now blessed to be able to spend lots of time with our family since everyone is currently living in Wisconsin. So, I guess it’s our time to go on a special vacation and having Stampin’ UP! paying our way makes it so very sweet!
To tell you the truth, I’m not sure we deserve this trip. It makes me want to work even harder to please all of my stamping family. I don’t want to call my customers customers, so many of them have become dear friends. Same thing with my down line. I want everyone to take the journey with me. I am working on the next grand vacation and I haven’t even gone on my first one. I’m not sure what that says about me, is that a good thing or a bad thing? (It makes Peter crazy! he just shakes his head and lets me carry on!)
So, I had better close before the tears blur the screen! Thank you – two little words that mean so much.
Thank you and good night!
