Preamble: Thanks for all the nice comments on my dad. He was well liked, and an humble man. I just received an e-mail from Rita out in Tennessee saying how much she enjoyed reading about dad. I love it. God is Good!
For today, space:
Do you have the luxury of an empty drawer in your home? When we moved out of this house into a motor home many years ago there were NO empty drawers. We had no idea we would be gone 20+ years.
Right now the closets are only half full! and I can count at least 10 empty drawers. Try to imagine that if you can! LOL
I would venture to say if we live here at least a year every drawer will have something in them. Some will be full. We humans are like that. Many of us have storage places outside our home that takes care of the overflow.
I heard a statement Sunday I won’t soon forget. “We are born, we Live, we die and then someone will go thru our stuff!” My sweet sister Shirl was obsessed with that idea of “Why do I have all this ‘sh-t’, I don’t want anyone going thru my stuff. I am going to get rid of it.” Like 99% of us humans she knew she could do that tomorrow, but time ran out.
Living in a motor home sorta limits the accumulation. Most RV’ers have loaded their RVs to the point it is a rule: When something new comes in, something else must go out. LOL
Me and you, had just better prepare for it, most likely someone will go thru our ‘STUFF’.
Shirl did have notes attached to some things. Her pictures, which were many, had notes attached. These can be shredded, everyone interested has copies.
What will remove us from this earth may be silently working to that end now, so if you need to destroy or sell something, just do it. LOL
PS: Did I read that sign right?
In an office:
AFTER TEA BREAK, STAFF SHOULD EMPTY THE TEAPOT AND STAND UPSIDE DOWN ON THE DRAINING BOARD.
