A Wonderful Quilting Story

Piece by Piece Quilters Post
My faith in humanity grows all the more. I went to mail a quilt to one of the survivors in Canada and as I went to mail it, they gave me custom form to fill out, which I did.
As they were quoting me the cost to ship (2 day priority with tracking), I hesitated when the quote was $46.50. "Really..." was my response.
"That's the least expensive?"
I hesitated again, thinking of the cost of the next one we'll be sending out and what I should include in it... Suddenly, there was a $50 being put in front of me, by a young man behind me. "Here, I'll trade you. You pay for mine, I'll pay for yours ( his by the way was $2.60). At first I refused, trying to explain why I was hesitating. That I had another package I'd be sending soon, trying to figure that additional cost. He told me I hesitated twice. That means I needed to have him help.
The nice thing additionally, was that i got to explain about the project (he'd never known), and meet him (John L). I gave him a hug and wished him so much love and gratitude for his "gift". He concluded that he'd made the best trade of the day... bless his heart.
Vanessa, it's mailed out.
