i am so sad tonight about a favorite of mine that is closing. there is a little shop that i frequent and it is the highpoint of a gloomy day. it is a lovely little shop that makes anyone who enters smile. the lady that works there is more lovely than a spring day. her kindness and disposition are such a sweet reminder of the way we are to treat others. she always has a lollipop for my children when we come into her shop. when i heard this sad news all i could think of was another favorite of mine, the movie "you've got mail". kathleen kelley tried her hardest to make her lovely shop around the corner a success admist the big book store, fox books from taking all of her business. i think it is such a sad state of affairs. a small business rarely makes it among all of the supercenters and chains. i have learned through this that i am going to have to support people and places that i love.
~type to you soon~
