Debbie walked to the front of her shop and felt a shock at finding everything covered in newspaper. They weren’t closing down until next week, so confused didn’t even cover her feelings as she felt for the keys in her pocket.
Just as her fingers touched the icy edge of the keys her eyes spotted one article adorning the page. It was about her shop! Somebody had noticed the craft shop as they walked down the road.
Somebody had noticed!
Debbie had thought nobody cared.
She swung open the door to find a gathering of people inside and they were all spending money. Apparently, somebody cared enough to cover her displays about closing down with the paper praising her work.
