An email from one of the woman from the knitting group. She got the hearts I sent her and said she was going to start making them too! Yay!
Then at breakfast with my daughter, I offered her hearts and she took one for herself, one for my granddaughter and a little kitty for my grandson. I left a heart for the waitress and to the lady who greeted us and showed us to our table.
Then I went to Michael’s to get a scoring tool. When I was checked out by a young man, he noticed the handmade badge I have on my jacket. He really liked it.
I knew all my hearts were gone but I pulled out the last kitten I had and offered it to him. He looked at it and asked me if I was from Chesterfield. No. His grandmother came home with something like it the other day he told me. So I told him my spiel… the 1000 hearts in Australia, make one for yourself (because self love is so important) and give 999 away. He was so pleased.
As I started to walk away I said, “Put it in your pocket and whenever you touch it know someone loves you.”
He smiled and said, “What’s your name?”
“I’m A——n. Thanks.”
