“I would like to buy your spinning wheel,” said Katie, “how much do you want for it?”
“Three hundred dollars,” said the woman.
Katie reached for her purse.
“I prefer it to be paid in cash,” she said, “it means a lot to me. I would very much like it to mean a lot to you.”
Not having cash, Katie drove several blocks to the bank and returned with the payment in full.
Years later, Katie still has the wheel and has become quite the master spinner, treasuring the wheel the started her on her way.
