My heart has been sad for one of my clients.
In my stationery business, one thing my clients depend on me for is help with all the proper etiquette, what to say, what to do, when to say it, when to do it, when to throw the etiquette out the window, when not to throw it out even though you want to...you get my point.
Within that etiquette hidden deep, very deep so you never really think about it and never ever want to use it is.....the proper way to cancel a wedding once invitations have been mailed out.
This I hoped I would never have to do but today I am. Today I'm going to the post office for a very sweet bride.
We've never met - she's lives far away - and we didn't need to. We clicked from the very beginning. She's been a joy to work with.
I love her family - I've worked with a few of them. I'm blessed.
Last week I was emailing her fun typewriter fonts and sayings as we were working on tags for her wedding favors and about to begin on the placecards and programs......but her reply was this:
"Andrea thank you for all your hard work. Unfortunately, there will not be a wedding......."
I cried - I sat in my office and tears began to roll. I sat there wondering oh my heavens what she must be going through, what must she be feeling - I couldn't help but hurt for her and pray for her :(.
So I did what etiquette says you should and designed a card to mail out. I asked to handle it all for her and take it off her plate. Today I'm mailing them for her.
Pray for her and her sweet family.
