    Yes, she was/is an angel. And now that you have been touched by your angel, you qualify as an angel. One day you will have to pass the angel touch onto another who is in need of a touch. You will know when. Just listen for the whisper and the stirring of your heart.

    Be a blessing,
    Suzanne

    This is to those who would covet a Bernina. I just bought one - new to me but a used machine. It is the 450 w/BSR and I am very happy with it. The local dealer is wonderful. He and staff treat the customers well. I traded a Janome 9000 owing the poor service. Check and see if your local dealer has used machines as well as good service. Our guy will give you full credit for the one purchased now toward an upgrade.

    Just an idea, Suzanne

    This story is so amazing. I love this group. We don't even know each other but if someone is having a bad day, going through a rough time or just needing fabric for a special project, the people on this group are always ready to jump in and help.

    You all are wondering.

    Whoever this Angel is "Thank You!" for reminding us all to pay it forward. We all are blessed in so many ways.

    Maria, that is just the nicest story. I don't know who this lady is, but she sure has a kind heart.
    I didn't know there were so many wonderful ppl, that love so many of the same things I do, until I found this board.
    It was great fun for me to share some things with hubby, in past eight or nine months, and show him, there are other ppl out there, at least somewhat like me.
    This lady surely does sound like an angel, and to be sure, we never know...angels unaware. Hugs, to whoever you are. you made a very nice person on this board very happy :D happy for you, maria :wink:

    There is so much greed in the world today and lots of people are only out for what they can get for themselves so it is wonderful to hear of someone helping someone when they can and not expecting anything in return..there are lots of people like that here on this board too always ready to offer to help or offer a word of comfort or praise when someone is down..it surely makes ones soul smile!!
    Hope you enjoy your lovely Bernina!

    Maride, I've never received such a high priced angel gift; however, I have had numerous different angels throughout my life. The last one was this past Christmas. I made a huge denim bag (I'm talking the hugest carrying bag for taking items to the Post Office) for a customer & asked if she wanted me to Embroider the name of her dau's company on it. When she came, my gson was here, she paid me the amount I quoted, then handed me a very large money gift. I told my gson if you treat people right, it will come back to you. Yours came back 100 fold and over. Congrats.
