A Very Thoughtful Card...

I'm not usually one for words...I like for my work to speak for me but I just wanted to post a copy of a very thoughtful card sent to me by one of my youngest clients. His name is Juston. 

Don & I met Juston while doing the Ft. Lauderdale Orchid Show and Juston was helping his Mom and Dad, who are Orchid Growers, answer questions about the plants, packing them up as well as carrying the newly purchased orchids to the customers car. Sometimes Juston got a tip...sometimes not but Juston was OK with...each tip he received was more than he expected plus, every tip he made was going for a gift for his mother.

Juston would hang out at our booth, with one eye on his booth over in the corner while looking over the jewelry. He would ask a question about a pearl or a stone, then he would think about it, carry out a few more orchids, come back and ask some more questions to the point he settled on one of my Ocean Reef Rings with a little 14k gold starfish which lays on the fan coral! He said his mom just finished painting in their house and it had starfishes painted on the wall so he thought his mom would really enjoy the ring with a starfish. 

Don & I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Juston...he was great salesman, even I bought an Orchid from him, but it wasn't just an Orchid...he had listen to me talk about all of my orchid growing failures because I constantly over water them and then just die. Anyway, Juston hearing this, brought over a Jewel Orchid and he can't kill this one, it loves water and proceeded telling me why water was OK for this particular orchid. Well to make a long story short...I still have my orchid and it's the only orchid I'll ever buy. 

After reading the card you may be thinking? Why would I send him a card that saved him time...well, I knew Juston couldn't drive so I purchased a Hallmark card with words saying...where would I be without you Mom? ...and then shows a little boy under a bunch of dirty clothes, well you get the picture. I thought after talking with Juston for three days, I think I picked the right one I hope.

Once he recieved the ring, a couple of days later I recieved this card and I wanted to share it...I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. 

I will cherish this card for a long time.

Thanks you Juston!
