a purse named after me...

Fun thing happened at work. I helped a lady picked out a new handbag for herself. After asking her a few lifestyle questions, I brought over some collections that she might be interested in and among them was a big camel color purse with compartments-one of the few things she was looking for in a bag. She let go of a big "gasps!" when I handed it to her...the color, the compartments and the style--she fell in love with it at first sight. She asked for my name then told me that she is very excited because it's her very first (brand) bag and decided that she will call it  her "Gemma" bag. I told her I'm excited for her and honored as well. She was very fun to assist with...full of enthusiasm..

Once you have a high quality purse, it's hard to go back to a cheaper version. It's one of those few things where quality does make a big difference (shoes are another).

I like the saying you put up. It is a good one to remember.

An encouraging development :). She must be very enamored of you. No spear-carrier, you.

I hope she gives you one of "your" purses. ~Mary
