Tender Mercies

Big problems are hard, but sometimes it's the little things that push you over the edge. One of the little things was having all of my earrings stolen. I got my ears pierced only two years ago, and in the two years since, I have found only one pair of perfect hoop earrings. They weren't too big, and they weren't too small. They were, as Goldilocks exclaimed, "Juuuust right!"

I found them at Payless about 6 months ago. Tuesday, when I was alone and thus jumpy and restless, I went to the nearest Payless to see whether I could find those perfect hoops again. I knew I was hoping against hope, so when I walked in, I didn't go straight to the earrings. I meandered through the racks of shoes and tried on a couple of pairs. Finally, I went to the earrings, and immediately spotted those perfect hoops. There was even a nice big pair of CZ studs as well. I was happy.

Even though it's the little things that sometimes push you over the edge, it's also the little things that can bring you back.

Thing I'm thankful for: your blog comments yesterday. Thanks, guys.

Yay for the sameness at Payless! I was going to get you some silver hoops, not too big, not too small, just right! lol
