    Absolutely! It makes me smile just to look at the picture of her being so happy.

    What a heart warming experience! I bet he loved every minute. Great job for a perfect "little girl's" gift. Thanks for sharing the finish line with us.

    Your husband has wonderful taste in the ladies in his life. She is a doll and you can see how thrilled she is to get her present! You both deserve a round of applause!! Thanks for sharing the photos.

    I am fairly sure that you are all correct...I think he enjoyed watching her excitement almost as much as she was excited to receive the tote and accessories. And, actually, I think he was proud of me too...he showed it off to the ladies he works with before he gave it making sure he told me how much they liked it, and he mentioned several times how "it really was a nice bag". (And he was really impressed when I told him I didn't have a pattern. It's nice to know I can still surprise him after 36 years.) LOL

    Hi Susie! How's things in your neck of the woods? Our youngest is considering University of Chicago for continuing her PhD. Maybe we will get to meet again!!! Yippee!!

    Don't you just love it when something you make is so well recieved? I know i do! That was a really nice thing that you and your Dh did for this little girl.when we do something nice for someone, the ripples of kindness spread out. The tote is really really cute.

    Thank you for posting the pictures. It makes the story more real, if you know what I mean!

    I will miss this little girl as she goes off to school in September. As I am teaching her the alphabet she is teaching me Chinese words. Hungs (yellow) is her favorite color and is why the bag is yellow. Māo (Cat) is her favorite animal and that is why there is a cat on the bag. My wife did a super job on this bag and it was very well received by Annie and her Mom. It really does feel good to do something like this. I don't very often reply on here but I thought I should. Xie xie (thank you) for all your kind words and zi jin (goodbye) :-)

    Ditto: Isn't this what life is about! This is sure a feel good story. I love it when a chance encounter turns out so well. You all will remember this for the rest of your lives. Thanks for sharing and for the feel good moment. (OK this good feeling will last longer than a moment).Congratulations to the both of you for making life for someone a little sweeter. BrendaK

    Family is a priority, not a convenience!
    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.
