Oh...how I adore Easter.
It's full of all my favorite colors.
I didn't decorate this year....I just had too much going on.
I did buy a little bunny the other day at Hobby Lobby on sale.
She'll be pretty added to my things for next year.
You can see what I did last year on this post.
And here too.
Since starting the new job...I've met so many nice and interesting people...
I've decided I'm going to start sharing their stories here.
We'll start with the 65 year old man that came in the other day to purchase two twin beds.
He and his new wife were adopting two teenage boys.
He met his new wife on Facebook a little over a year ago.
Seems they knew a lot of people that knew each other.
They had both lost their spouses to illness a few years before
and decided after visiting on Facebook to meet up.
They met at a Denny's and that first date lasted four hours.
After marrying his new wife, he learned that she had two great nephews whose parents were
involved in drugs and in prison.
The two boys had been in different foster homes since they were little, now 15 and 18
they were coming to live with him.
He said in his previous life...he had two girls...now grown.
The boys have already come and stayed many weekends with him and he was so excited to
have them come live permanently.
He HAD to have the twin beds by the weekend for their new room at his house.
He left telling me about all the activities he had planned for them and how he'd already
arranged for one of them to have a car to drive.
He was so excited to have these boys in his life and filled with hope to bring happiness
to them. The two boys grew up apart. This will be the first time they've gotten to see
each other every day and live in the same house since they were like 5 and 8.
The least I could do was help him find the right beds.
Oh...I love the stories of the people I help each day.
More to come....
