I had a yard sale today. It went well. The kids even made a few dollars running a lemonade stand. I wanted to take just a minute to share “The Story of the Day” with you all.
I had all kinds of things on 5 long tables. It was a good yard sale! LOTS of kids’ clothes and items. And I had a stack of about 6 baby blankets collected over the years from my two wonderful children.
A lady customer walked up and was looking around. She saw the blankets and asked me how much I wanted for them. “$1.00 a blanket,” I replied, thinking that was a reasonable price for these really cute, soft blankets.
She responded back with, “I’d like to buy many of them. Would you take 50 cents for each? I give them to my dogs.”
She wanted my cute, snuggly baby blankets that I used for my precious children…for her DOGS.
I’m all for having pets. I have friends who treat their dogs better than people. And that’s fine, but don’t tell a Mama her little blankets of cuteness are going to be used to wrap up slobbery dogs.
One slobber does not equal another.
Have a great weekend!
