THIS is Why we Love This Job

Although being a member of Things With Wings isn't really a "job," it's more of a privilege...

I had the honor of creating a custom order for a man who, like any good husband, took his wife's very strong hints that she wanted a Things With Wings piece for her birthday.  :-) After some brainstorming, he came up with the idea to create a piece using the meanings of their sons' names.  (Their meanings were why they chose the names they did):

Luke = Light
Nicholas = Victory
Jack = Grace

So here's what I came up with:

Here's the response I got today from the husband:

"Got it today - how fast was that!!?  And then..I just couldn't wait and I had her open it 19 days before her birthday.  She teared up, loved it, loved it, loved it.  It's absolutely perfect - thank you so much.  Feel free to put it on your blog/FB whenever!   THANK YOU - it's better than I expected.  :)"

From the Birthday Girl:

"There aren't words enough to THANK YOU for my amazing birthday present. I love it more than I could ever say! Thank you for seeing my husband's vision and creating such a gorgeous piece of art for our home. I will treasure it always."

THAT'S why I love doing this!  It's an honor and a privilege!  Makes my heart full!
