Life Lesson #30: Don’t trade Today for Someday
Apparently it’s human nature. Vintage linen collectors know it’s a fact. We’ve seen it many times.
Far too many times.
…or finished ones–unused.
New pretties… untouched and unloved. Never removed from their package.
Original tags still on them… Waiting for–what, exactly?
Someone to want them? To use them, perhaps?
Someone to rescue them from their original boxes–storage stains and all?
I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve looked through the estate of someone now gone from this world who left behind box after unopened box of beautiful treasures. Sometimes the boxes even have a date on them, and occasionally the name of the person who gave the gift. I’ve even seen the date the thank you note was written (back when people still did that on a regular basis!) …
But “the good linens” were put away for Someday.
Someday never came.
During this series, I’ve shown you a couple of linens I, too, put away for “someday”–but I’ve vowed to do something with them…or let them go to someone who will.
What are we waiting on?
Starting today, let’s use the good linens–pull out the good dishes–stop our “busy” and focus on people around us; family, friends, neighbors.
If we’re not careful, it will be too late…
Have you been waiting for Someday? Why?
