My Heart was Pounding!!

THE Garage Sale Find of the Century!
Pearls. LOTS of pearls.
Not real of course, but WHO CARES!!!

I was alone in the back room of the small town's church sale. The whole table was loaded with tons of old jewelry, mostly plastic earrings and beads, but atop the piles were the PEARLS~!!!
LOTS of them~!!! My mouth went dry and my heart began to pound.
I looked around and there was no one else in the room....Could I get them all in my hands before someone else walked and wanted some???? Would I have time to go through all the little boxes to find any more special finds???
I almost died....there were so many, and the prices were AWESOME!
I loaded my hands, my arms, and dug to my heart's content.
No one else came in the room!!! I could look at everything and make sure I didn't miss anything.
My heart almost couldn't take it. I decided as I finished looking at every single bit available that I wouldn't be able to make it through the rest of the sale if I didn't give my finds to the cashier to begin tallying up.
I took the handfuls of Treasures to her and asked her to please start totalling it up. She smiled a huge smile at me and began!!!
I went back into the room and was finally able to concentrate on what else was in the room.
After the final adding was done, I purchased my Treasures and floated across the parking lot to my very hot car.
I floated home, and had an absolutly wonderful time looking through the treasure more carefully. How fun~!

I've been there...the pounding heart. I got a deal so great one time, that I swear my heart literally skipped a beat! It has never happened before or after! That's what keeps us hunting and thrifting!
