We couldn't stay around for the actual drawing because we had another gig to get to. The next day came and went and we never got a phone call so we assumed the violin had been won by someone else. The following week my husband got a call. It was the woman I had been joking with, and she had won the new violin! She was calling to see if my daughter wanted her other violin.
This week we finally had time to go look at the violin and determine if it was a good fit for Kayleigh. My daughter liked it, and we worked out a deal with the woman. Actually, she was willing to give it to us - a complete, free gift - but I was also willing to pay something and gave her the cash I had on hand.
As we drove away I was struck by the kindness and generosity this woman had toward us - complete strangers. She had been blessed with a new violin, and she was now willing to give away what she no longer needed. What a beautiful example.
