    Look what i got on free cycle a lady was giving away quilt scraps and some embroidery blocks. I told her I would love to have them please if no one had beat me asking. When I went to pick them up I thanked her, and told her I couldn't believe some one didn't beat me asking for them. She said they did, but she picked me. She said God told her to give them to me. I was the only one that said please. They was 6 pkgs. of easy triangle papers,2 quilt blocks of quilt blocks cross stitched by plaid,a lap quilt or wall hanging,by jack dempseym needle art,a baby quilt top cross stitch ark and friends. Also a small bag of maxine fabric. I was so excited to get it out of the box, I have not opened all the bags yet. there was also 4 pieces of yardage different prints. Isn't God Good? don't it pay off to say please and thank you.

    Enjoy!!!!!!! That is a nice story too. I know many people even complain when they are gifted something free. Unbelievable. A plain honest thank you is normal in my book when some one gives you something.

    Please, Thank You, Yes/no mam/sir are always our best bet. Keep praising God and have fun with His blessing.

    Yes it does pay to have good manners. There are one or two on here that doesn't have good manners at all. What a nice lady. I am so glad for you to get such a good gift.

    I wish more people remembered to say please & thank you. I see courteous people less and less in public places.

    I remember my mom and dad teaching us that if something was worth accepting - then it was worth a thank you!! Parents are so smart aren't they?!!

    She probably figured you would take better care of them since you were kind.
