Thinking ahead to the upcoming holidays, there was nothing needed to buy in order to decorate.
The last couple of years, not even all the decorations jam-packed in the attic came down at Christmas time.
There were just too many of them to use all at once.
So while doing a fun walk-through at an out-of-town Goodwill, there was no thought whatever of buying anything for Christmas.
Then I saw it-----two darling little angels perched over a tiny and adorable Baby Jesus.
Made in Japan, the little music box played "Oh Come All Ye Faithful."
My baby granddaughter absolutely loves music boxes and this one would definitely thrill her.
Those were my thoughts and they were correct.
I happily paid the $2.79 that it cost.
Of course, since it's breakable, an adult has to be right near her when she's holding it, but the look on her little face when she hears it play makes it all worthwhile.
She's even learned that the baby is "Dee-zus!"
This purchase is one of the little things that makes life extra special.
WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED RECENTLY IN YOUR OWN LIFE THAT WAS EXTRA SPECIAL?
