The other weekend when we were out doing yardwork, our next door neighbor came over and offered us a bag of clothes that her daughter had outgrown. Then she asked if we could use some markers. We can always use markers. I never expected the box of markers to be a classroom size.
My daughter and I opened the box up to find an almost full classroom set of markers. Having previously looked at the price of classroom packs, I was flabbergasted. I excitedly told my husband about all of the markers. He looked at me and whispered, “They are markers.” He didn’t understand why I as so excited about markers. It’s the little things in life, though, that make life enjoyable. There was also a bit of the little girl in me who would have loved to receive such a gift.
