A couple of weeks ago I was in my hood on the Upper East Side of Manhattan enjoying a beautiful night with a friend and just as we were getting ready to leave, I bumped into Martha Stewart. Everyone that knows me, knows I am a complete Southern Bell and as soon as I saw her I threw my arms around her, gave her a big kiss on each cheek, and exclaimed that I am a total admirer of her. I think I startled herâ€¦actually, I KNOW I startled her, but she â€œwent with itâ€ as if we were old pals. The friend I was with made me realize that I probably went a little too far with my friendliness, and Iâ€™m sure I did. When I came into my office on the following Monday, I sent Martha a pair of Sunglasses and an Optical frame, along with a note apologizing for practically attacking her out of my shear excitement over meeting her. I never thought much about it again until today when a personal thank you note came in the mail from her.
We send our products to people all the time and rarely, if ever, do we receive a thank you. I can only imagine the letters and products that Martha receives, yet she made the effort to thank me, personally.
Marthaâ€¦you have talent and character on every level. All the best to YOU and
