We shop in thrift stores because we are clothes hawks!
– Wendy Graber ~my mother :0)
Saturday my mother and I spent the day looking around the little novelty stores in my town. I heard that the wonderfully smelling Mango Papaya candle from Soy and the City were being sold at a little spot called The Wine House. So we entered and were greeted by this bouncy dog and the owner of the store. She sent us upstairs where all the gifts were sold…cute stuff up there!! We also went to Brambles …love that place!!
Anyway back to clothes hawks my mom told me about a college student asking to interview her about why she shops in thrift stores. She told her that her and my sister are clothes hawks…
clothes hawks….a hawk searches for prey or something to peck at!!
So what are we on the look out for
What do we have our eye on. When my mom said clothes hawks the first thing I thought is that is how we are in life in many areas…especially the mental emotional and spiritual aspects, so what do we LOOK for is it….love…kindness…smiles…creativity…beauty
or do we go around being IDIOT HAWKS…
everyone is stupid and ignorant but you …….right???
How sensitive are we to being jaded and offended…
how about we stop being OFFENSE HAWKS …
and start being LOVE BIRDS!!! :0) I think I like that Idea!!
1 “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side,”
We are free…to LOVE!
