Earring 0019 Simple but Elegant
These are so pretty but even though they are simple they are elegant. Donna could wear these all dressed up or while in jeans. Of course, if you knew Donna, even in jeans she was all dressed up. She was always the one ready to go shopping. Her daughter, my sister-in-law Sandy, and I talked about this a little bit the other day. As we are getting older we know why they were always ready to go. It wasn't about shopping, it was about being with people. You know, you just want to be around people but not necessarily to be friends with them. There's something about smiling at a stranger or saying a kind word to someone in line either behind or in front of you. It might be their only smile of the day or even the only time they had an opportunity to chat.
Have to admit that I give people a lot of opportunity to chat. I may not be one to talk a lot while I'm working, at home with my cat, and I'm definitely not the extrovert at a party. But give me a minute to say hello to someone and the next thing you know, we are having a conversation and I know about their family before we part (they will also know a little about mine too!). I enjoy going to a casino and sitting at a slot machine. Besides that, I enjoy interacting with the people older than me. You can learn a lot about others and yourself at the same time. Met some pretty nice people. May not ever met them ever again but it feels good to make that tiny connection.
