Yesterday in another city, I stopped at the local craft store to pick up a quick item. In the yarn aisle, a lady was standing admiring a scarf being displayed. She turned and inquired if I knitted which I replied with a yes. She continued by remarking how she thought the scarf was so soft and pretty. I went over and looked at the scarf with her and replied yes, it was. We continued to admire the scarf and I stated the scarf was crocheted. She again inquired did I crochet and how long would it take to make. I replied yes and it could be finished in a day. As our conversation continued and I watched her keep gently touching the scarf, the pivotal moment came. I offered to make the scarf and deliver it to her when finished. Her reaction was priceless. The light in her eyes reflecting her excitement and gratitude will be a vision that I will not forget. Nor the warm fuzzy feeling that overcame me.
Christmas… a time of giving. An unselfish act that comes from the heart and you actually receive more than the individual you are giving. This is what I had experienced with a perfect stranger in the middle of a craft store aisle. Reflecting, had I stayed in my “hustle and bustle” mode, this glorious opportunity would have been missed. So grateful that I didn’t. ~ Robin
