You can also see the "taggies" I made hanging to the right of the stuffed doggie. Sweet. ***************
Grandma Lynn hit the garage sales of all garage sales today where a woman was selling children's books that were brand new for $1 each; and Boyd Collection collector dolls and teddy bears. I came home with three grocery bags full of books and one girl doll and two bears. I also got some craft items. The sad part of the story was the woman sitting there whose things these were. I noticed her hand shaking as though she might suffer from Parkinson's Disease. I do not think she was as old as I am. I was later told she also suffered from Amnesia. Who knew this was a disease that could befall someone not under catastrophic conditions like an accident, as was not the case for her. I knelt down to talk to her and to thank her for sharing her collections and told her they'd be going to my grandchildren and would be treasured. She spontaneously reached up to hug me and said: "You are a nice lady"... What a sweetheart she is. I went away counting my blessings...and realizing once again how every moment is precious in life. One never knows.
