Today something unexpected came up. Fred texted me and told me that one of our previous clients sent us a thank you gift.
Guess what? It is a Parker pen !! With our names engraved on it, individually. And to top that off, there was a thank you note, which is worth a heck lot more than the amount of bonus (is there any???) I am going to receive from the engineering company I am working for currently.
The Thank You Note
I have not owned a Parker Pen before. Somehow, I cannot help but get this hard pang on my heart as I saw the photographs of the items being sent by my photography partner, Fred. The items are with Fred at the moment, they will be delivered to me this weekend.
For the first time, I felt as if I was doing something right. Something that seriously paid off, and I feel deeply acknowledged on what I love doing. This beats winning international photography awards, anytime.
To both Damien and Marie Foong, thanks a lot for having us as photographers for your wedding day. We deeply appreciate your very kind gifts, they mean a lot, and this will be something we look at to push our passion in photography further.
