A Very Nice Letter

After I offered personal visits to new homeowners last week, I received this very kind letter from a ToolGirl subscriber.  So just in case you ever feel alone in the journey with your house, here's some love from a ToolGirl who made it.  Let's all hope we can return the favour one day!

Dear Mag,

The homeowner visit by ToolGirl is a great idea!  I don't meet the requirements for a visit -- I've been in my home for 17 years now as a single person.  But I've honestly learned a lot from your online videos and book.  You take the "fear factor" out of attempting projects.
I remember all too well my first couple years as a homeowner -- a single woman trying to make it on her own.  My Mom and Dad were great support, though, and their advice was extremely helpful.  Not everyone has that kind of support, so the idea of ToolGirl visiting new homeowners is wonderful and will be very much appreciated.  I hope some young lady who is starting out like I did, that doesn't have a solid support network behind her, gets a visit from ToolGirl.  God bless you!

Thanks Mary for your words of encouragement.  I'll be sending you a ToolGirl baseball cap to wear in all of your DIY endeavors.   



what a sweet encouraging letter.. be blessed.. and thanks for posting this..
take care,
