Were my prayers answered? by Jilly

We had this lovely old antique Victorian Harmonium/pump organ in our shop for awhile, which I had kind of rescued because I wanted to find the perfect home, rather than it just used for display in yet another pub or themed restaurant.
So as it had been in the shop for 4 weeks, I said to my husband David, " I really hope and pray that someone walks in soon who lives in a chapel, can read music and wants to learn how to play the harmonium!" Really thinking to myself what is the likelihood of that......

Well the next day was a really lovely busy Saturday, with lots of old and new customers stopping by for a look at all the furniture, gifts, handmade cushions and of course Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan.

Well at about 3 pm two ladies walked in and started talking excitedly at the rear of the shop, and then as I walked nearer to them one said to me, "I live in a chapel, I can read music and I would love to learn how to play the Harmonium, and its my birthday next week."  So after her telling her the very reasonable price, she went hope to persuade her husband to buy it for her birthday present! 
Now this lovely Harmonium is living happily in a chapel again......
Take care and think positive thoughts!
Love Jilly
