I have tell you a story


Thank you so much for shipping my order so so fast!  You have a super system of notifications.  :0)

I have to tell you something ...  It is really a long story but I'll just cut to the chase.

I bought my first set of 10 seeds at Journey's of Life here in Shady Side, PA.

The first seed i gave away was to Linda.  She works at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital and she interviewed me for a position as a Health Unit Coordinator.  My first interview in over 10 years.  I packed a bright yellow seed in my purse and decided I would give it to her when we finished the interview and said goodbye.  You should have seen her face when I plopped that little glob of bright yellow clay in her hand!!  She was so surprised and happy at the same time.  When I contacted her a few days later to thank her for interviewing me she told me that "i made her day."  It made a big impression on her.  No one had done anything like that before.

It looks like I will be receiving a phone call from their HR department by the end of the week to offer me the position!!  I will work in the waiting room at Presbyterian Hospital and be the go between the doctors/nurses and the families.  This is a level 1 hospital so they receive trauma cases all day long.  I will be with those families as their loved one is in surgery.  This is also the waiting room for people who have scheduled surgeries, transplants and major heart surgery.  Can you imagine how many seeds I will need????  Do you know what an impact your little seeds are going to have????

Linda loved the seed so much I decided to order her a whole bag of her own.  Seeds she can now give to people she meets through out her day.  I'm so excited!!

Thank You!


Sorry to babble so much.... I just thought you needed to know what an impact your seeds have had on my life and all the live I will touch from her on out.

SPARK ⭕ A bright orange smile

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about the orange smile 🧡 that I received 11 years ago. My incredible son passed away 3.3.2013 at 24 years old. He was such a delight and loved by so many. He was born 12 weeks early and struggled in the hospital for his first 3 years.

I have gifted several Seeds of Happiness over the years and seasons.  I've sprinkled them in various locations with friends throughout the country.  They never fail to bring a smile and good remembrances, I've been told.
