The day of our meeting was sunny and warm, perfect for the plant nursery she chose to meet at - complete with coffee shop inside. We sat under the umbrellas at a table over a coffee and had a relaxed, friendly chat. It felt familiar even though I had never met this person before. We exchanged details of our lives and plans for the future. It was lovely.
I had completely forgotten the reason for our meeting.
Once our coffees were finished and were making our way outside she mentioned that she had brought along a few extra items that she wasn't using anymore. I was welcome to use them or pass them on to friends I thought who could use them.
I was completely unprepared for what followed.
The generosity of this dear person took me quite aback.
Useful books packed with so much information..
...from crafts to spinning, cooking to preserving, permaculture and so on..
Yarn for knitting and fleece for spinning. Fabric to sew along with a yoghurt maker.
The spinning wheel that was originally mentioned, which spins as smooth as smooooth can be.
The generosity and kindness of this reader has me feeling completely overwhelmed. I am grateful more than words can say. If you are reading, A, thankyou! From the bottom of my heart. xxx
Do you 'pay things forward'? Perhaps you've been the recipient of similar goodwill? What are your experiences? I'd love to hear..
