It's been a few days since I wrote a post. Thought I should check in to let you know I'm still here!
It's Saturday night and Aidan and Zoe are here. Their parents are taking an evening out, something they don't do often. We watched a movie, we ate pizza, we read lots and lots of books. I also cleaned today and did some laundry and made food for tomorrow. The Fahnestock family will be getting together to celebrate an early Thanksgiving and to also celebrate Mother's 92 birthday!
And we said goodby to a piece of furniture, the pine hutch which was one of the few pieces we bought new as a young married couple. It served us well. I knew it would be something we wouldn't take with us when we move. I decided to give it to someone who could use it. Our church had a Free Clothing Give-Away today. It was my intent to take the hutch to church to be given away. I know, it's not an article of clothing! But, it took me too long to get everything out of it and packed. So, I took a picture to church to post. Sure enough, I got a call! A lovely couple with a child came to pick it up. She said it was for someone who doesn't have furniture, he mentioned something about their son having lots of toys....I don't care if they keep it or give it away. I had another call for it too. I took her number. She would be interested in any furniture we may be getting rid of before we move.
Why give away rather then sell? Because what we have is functional but not valuable. Most of our furniture was either given to us or purchased at household auctions and thrift stores. We have a few pieces that may have value other than sentimental value. We give because there are so many in need. So, so many in need.
Blessings to you, my friends!
