A New Month for Gratitude Monday

My sister left this afternoon and
we had such fun going to a local
thrift store: 5.00 a bag! It was
contagious and addicting to fill
it up with clothes! How could we
leave something when it costs so
little? Anyways, we met another
set of sisters who mirrored us:
one brunette and one with grey
hair! Getting a good deal is fun.
It is something to be grateful for.
It is another thing to share it with
a sister. For those of you with sisters,
close ones, you know that deep kind
of gratitude!

Then we came home for a salad and
laughed until we cried. One bag at the
thrift store was less than the 2 books
and 2 videos she bought at the Christian
library across the street. I mean 2.00
for a hardback compared to 25 cents.
( about what the sweaters, dresses,
tops amounted to , you know, you see
how much can go into a grocery bag!)
It makes you feel very frugal and that
makes it weird. The books seemed so
expensive compared to our bags.
We laughed so hard we cried.
We could not even talk
because each word brought another
funny thought . THAT laughter is good
for the soul.

We were thankful to get new things
that were really others old things!

holy experience

Sounds like such fun. And such a story to remember, not to mention the story those used clothes could tell.

It's good to have a sister like that! Someone who knows you from childhood and understands you and can laugh crazily with you.

So much fun! I'm still chuckling! I think I'll wear one of my "new" shirts tomorrow!
