An Awesome Find
Finally shopping at an antique store that I had longed to visit for a few years now. We stopped there at my request...hoping I would find something that would satisfy my need for another photography prop. I browsed...from room to room. Not finding anything that really grabbed me...except the owners pup, Bear..whom I also didn't see until I'd browsed most of the store's rooms. He came out of no where. Not sure where he hid until then..he wasn't small..but he was awesome.
One last walk through and I was heading up front when I saw an old tractor toy..child size that was meant to ride...with pedals to pump. A bit out of my price range. Oh well. I enjoyed the time to just browse. I turned. I looked down.
There they were...stuck..hidden...on a floor level shelf...under another one. There is no telling how long they had been there. Why would anyone want them? Why would anyone give them up?!! I'm pretty sure I stopped breathing for a sec...in excitement...as I listened to them calling my name...'we're here. Here. Look Down.'
This one find. Made it all worth it. Satisfied my craving...for another photography prop along the lines of the vintage sports items I was slowly collecting.
I was...one happy camper!!!
(Two of my favorite movies full of inspiration...The Million Dollar Baby and Cinderella Man. Now...I felt 'part of it'.)
...sigh...Thank you, Dear Lord...for directing me.
