A gift, when the little things mean so much

On April 2, I went shopping at my favorite garden center, Gertens. While looking in their gift section at a little bird sitting in a nest, a craft ornament, I started talking about it with another lady - how adorable it was and how you could hear the cardinals singing outside now. Then I walked away, looking at other things. Then the saleslady came up to me and handed me a bag and said the lady I was talking to said to give me the bag after she left the store. I opened the bag, and inside was the cute little bird sitting in the nest.

She didn't know that I had cancer twice and that just the little things in life mean so much more to me now. She made my day so very special. I have that little bird in the nest sitting on my table now.

I just wanted to thank her for her kindness.
