So yesterday I told you I had my daughter's future mother in law post some stuff for sale on Facebook. She uses the Albion area, garage sale site as well as one or two others but I don't know what those are. Grace said, "Now see, asking for some help works, right?" Well yes, it does when you ask the right person. Amy was the second person I asked and not only did she come over the same day I asked her but by the next day I had sold several items.
Next, I sold a lighter for $2 and a pair of sunglasses for $5
The big sale of the day was the pool steps. She listed them at $150 or best offer and the woman offered $125. When she got here to look at them she asked if I would take less. Without hesitating, I said I didn't want to go lower than the 125. Without further hesitation, she pulled the cash out of her pocket and we carried them out to her truck.
Now to some people, this would be just a little extra spending money. Normally that's how I would have looked at it. Now I see this as finally being able to go to the grocery store. This experience has taught me to never ever take for granted the ability to walk into a store and buy a simple loaf of bread. I'm not complaining about my situation or expecting sympathy I'm just saying it really has been a humbling experience. It's certainly been a lesson is learning to appreciate everything a whole lot more.
