Wooden Necklace From A Dollar Store

One day I went to work wearing this wooden necklace and earring set. One of my colleagues commented on the set and asked me if I would get the same exact set for her. "Absolutely," I said.
When I went to the store, I thought of another teacher who might like the set too and another who might like a wooden braclet that I saw. I took the items to work and gave each of them the item, when I saw them individually.
When I presented the item to each of them, they each wanted to know the cost, and I said it was no cost. It was so amazing to see the smile come to each of their faces when I gave them the item. I smiled too, as it made me feel good to see them smile and to have done something good.
I also learned a valuable lesson that value is not always measured in how expensive or how much or how little you pay for something -- these wooden items were purchased in a super dollar store.
we must all continue to make a better world by appreciating God with our little gesture of kindness to all those that comes our way.
i love you all!!!!!!!!!!!
