Yesterday I found this metal wall candle holder of $1..it has mirrors behind it so it looks like several candles , but is just the one~
and the darling vintage candle with red lights(they look purple in the pic) and the pinecone lights and holly around it for $1.. LOVE them ..they look so pretty at night ~~(:)
....there was no Christmas music playing ..
We went to a little town about an hour away yesterday had fun looking around and shopping ......stopped at some Thrift stores looking for my little santas I collect ...one of Thrift stores we went into stuck in my mind this morning ..it was dusk --always a dim time of day--through the windows I saw the store keeper and her son about 10 years old working on somethings behind the desk ...they were both trim and healthy looking but I senses a sadness..
So we looked around and I didn't see anything I wanted and I said 'thanks' as we left--she replied ''' thank-you~
As I got into the car I looked in she sat there an put her chin into her hand.. like someone would do when their days work is almost over and their tired.. but her face looked so sad.. I felt for her and her child as he quietly and carefully was taking items out of a box...
I know it is so hard on a child if a parent is depressed...
I wonder if she misses her family that may live in another country, or maybe she has ill parents or another in her family.. I wondered if they were struggling financially.. or an abusive husband or maybe she was a young widow..UGH.........oh all the thoughts that have gone through my mind..
She probably was just tired an bored an wanted to get home and cook dinner(:) I HOPE~~
Life can be very sad for some at Christmas
....we are more aware of those we pass..... I wish I purchased something there now..or had somehow connected with her and simply asked if she was OK..
A MUST go see ~~``
