It's the little things...

The most amazing thing happened at the Craft Fair and it had nothing to do with my dolls!
A year ago, at the same craft fair, I met a young woman named Valerie (who was also vending at the show near me). Last year, she saw the hand crafted pendants I was selling and she wanted to have me make a couple memory pendants (one for her sister and one for her grandma). She had lost her Aunt Riley to cancer and the pendants were photo pendants of Riley.
When I arrived this morning there was Valerie! She greeted me with a hug and said, "I am so glad you are here. I wanted to tell you that my grandma wears the pendant you made last year every single day. She absolutely loves it!"
I actually teared up! What a wonderful thing. To think that I had a small little part of bringing such joy into the life of Valerie's grandmother was a bit overwhelming for me. And if that wasn't enough....
A few hours later, Valerie came over to my table and said, "There is someone that I want to introduce you to". There was Valerie with her grandma. And guess what? She was wearing the pendant!
It's moments like these.....
