Yesterday was the second day of our yard sale. We didn't have as many visitors, but the visitors who came by stayed a little longer to chat, telling us their stories. One neighbor has had more than ten successful businesses in his life time. Another neighbor is a painter and comes from a family of artists. Another visitor came back for more of my pottery and said she had already put several of my dishes in her home and was so happy to have them.
A young girl came by with her mother and bought one of my pendants. She said she worked with clay at her school. I asked her if she wanted me to put the pendant on her and she said yes. While I put the pendant on I asked her name, she said it was Tiara. She already knew my name. When she left she called out "Bye Linda" and I said "Bye Tiara, keep working with your clay". I noticed Tiara had a little skip to her walk as she went to the car with her mother.
At the end of the day an unlikely pair of gentlemen came by in a handicap van. They looked at this and that and one said "He's 40 and I'm 80; we make the rounds to the garage sales together". The 80 year old bought a butterfly pin for "one of my neighbors who collects butterflies" and then he bought an old postcard "for my other neighbor who has cancer; he collects old postcards". He reached into his pocket for change to pay and pulled out his angel charm. He said "Here I want you to have this charm, it will bring you good luck". Later I thought I already had good luck. I met a very generous person; a person only thinking of others and not himself. Thanks for the charm. Yesterday was a good day; it was a very charming day.
