Something similar happened to me last week when I stopped into a
corner store to buy a lottery ticket. When I handed my dollar to the
man on the other side of the counter he looked at me with surprise
and said, "Oh, let me see!" He asked me if I had just gone to India
and I told him, "No, I just did it because I really love it." He
gave me a big smile and said, "It's VERY pretty!"
Like you, it made my day. :)
: ... it was a really neat moment, that. She stopped me in the Wal-
: Mart, grabbed my hand, and grinned hugely. Then she peppered me
: questions. Where did I get the henna? Who taught me the designs?
: (Her brother had something similar to my Arabic lettering when he
: married.) How did I learn to do it? She thought it was so pretty!
: Made *my* day. :-)
: Blessings to all,
