Garage sale and Erik!
Friday, August 02, 2013
Okay, I'm blogging in my garage.
The sale opened for 3 hours last night. I pulled the signs in and went closed up after making $6.25, the $6 was Erik's. He thought that was funny, met the neighbor buying and was amiable.
I asked him for some of his smaller bills, because I wanted to have change-seed money.
This morning I moved my car to my neighbor's drive, put out the signs and started hanging stuff when I had several customers. One lady wanted Erik's night stand for 10 instead of 12 dollars and because Erik was standing there, I asked him. It was like magic, he was engaged, part of the process, let her have it for 10 when I was thinking I should have asked 15-it was good wood after all. When he came home from therapy he was very happy to learn he had earned over &70. 00 today and asked where was the other stuff-he meant what's still at the storage unit. I pray he continues to be this amiable.
We also met a neighbor who knows a physical therapist who gets you to engage your mind in your physical movements. Roy said the guy is amazing. Erik liked him and was glad he bought some of his cammo gear and his hiking belt with two canteens-which Erik had priced at $10.00. Erik wants to meet the the PT, and Roy promised to come down and visit with Erik sometimes-I pray he does.
I did not make as much as Erik-but this really wasn't about me. Tomorrow is another day of Garage sales.
So Praise God and Thank all of my SF for your prayers, good thoughts, etc.
Hugs to all
