|Max watching his friend drive away.|
People literally want something for nothing. Well not all people... today I was graced by this amazing elderly lady, 82 years old, driven around by her son, in an ancient truck that was barely running. She was an angel in disguise, who deserved to be pampered, but instead chose to collect the ingredients for terminal patient's care packages. When I tried to give her items for free, she insisted on paying for them. (So I dropped my prices 95% and in garage sale speak that means pricing things for mere cents instead of dollars.) I was in love. So was Max. Their friendship was sealed when she gave him a 5 cent tip, a "token in appreciation" as she called it. She truly put my whole day into perspective.
Life is somewhat similar to a garage sale, where not just items, but people become old hat and their worth fades to almost nothing in the eyes of others. Then, just when you least expect it, angels come along and see value, giving an item, or a person, new life.
