My Opal Earrings

--by mindyjourney, posted Aug 5, 2015
Left an anonymous gift of my opal earrings, a SMILE card, origami dove and an encouraging note to one of the clerks at the wild bird supply store that is closing.

Clerk was there, so I propped the addressed card on a shelf where she is sure to find :)). She had admired the earrings last time I was there, as well as my car (she helped carry my purchases).

I admit this one was tough, I really liked those earrings <3. But, at least I didn't give her the car :))). Husband may have balked at that!

Smiling inside, thinking of her finding them!

*oh, gave them a rose too <3.

kjoyw wrote: That's truly giving, Mindy. It's easy to give something that's not your favorite or in any way extra special. It's another thing altogether to give something you really care about. (You probably made a good decision to keep the car!) And it's it too bad when a store or restaurant you love closes? I get very unsettled about that. You just have to wish them well in whatever they do next. And you did a grand job of doing that!
