I hesitated about posting this because I don't want it to come across like I am "the cat's meow" or "tooting my own horn" etc. I am not. I am just a person who has faults, does weird things, and very much a free spirit, etc........but I am posting this because I was reminded the other day that you just don't have to do a lot or have a ton of money sometimes to make someone's day.
The other day I was at a thrift store when it reopened after being closed for a month. I try to visit this store once a week as I occasionally find some really neat stuff here. On that particular day, I had a few items in my arms and was looking around when a lady came up to me. She pointed at the remnant piece of fabric I had and asked me where I found it and related to me that she had been looking and looking for some of that fabric to finish a project. I told her where I found it but that I didn't think there was anymore of it. She said something like "oh shucks and oh well" and started to walk away. As she started to walk away, I called out to her and said, "here you can have this fabric". She was shocked and said, "are you serious" and I was. As she walked away, I heard her say to her friend how surprised she was that I gave it to her. She was happy and trust me I was happy. I was reminded again that it just doesn't take a lot to make someone's day or mine either for that matter.
I hope it is cool wherever you are because it is blazing hot here.
