Hello Seeds of Happiness crew,

My name is Olivia and I recently ordered 20 seeds from you all. Everything is great so no worries there! I just thought I would tell you how appreciative I am. You see, my college softball coach gave me a little orange seed of happiness in the spring to make me feel better after my friend passed away.

Ever since then, I carry it around and it seriously just makes me smile.

This seed seriously pops up every time I need it. I will lose it randomly, and then when I'm sad or feeling blue, I find it. There was this one time I rode a shuttle into work to DC and before i put the seed in my pocket. When I got to work I was distressed because I couldn't find it. I got sad I lost it, but also happy for the next person who found it because why not share the happiness. I rode the shuttle home and sat in the same seat I rode in on both even thinking about it. When I was about to get off, I randomly felt the seat and there was my seed stuck in between the cushions on the shuttle. It always comes back to me haha.

I love little sentimental tokens like this because it's the little gestures and things that mean the most. People may not always remember what you gave them or what you said, but they always remember how what you did made them feel. I felt so cared for when my coach handed me a seed and told me the story of her grandmother and how she also loved little trinkets. This little orange lump of clay means a lot and I bought these seeds to share with people who may need them.

I love what you all stand for and these seeds are fabulous! I hope this message isn't too long but thank you so much and keep spreading the happiness! =)
