It’s the little things in life

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Almost exactly two years ago, Don built me a little shelving unit to store gallon jugs of bulk staples: oatmeal, brown sugar, whole wheat flour, tea, pasta, raisins, etc.

I was making some oatmeal-raisin cookies for the neighborhood potluck last week. As I always do, I pulled the necessary jugs of ingredients from this shelving unit and placed them on the table until needed.

And it occurred to me how much I took for granted this extremely useful piece of furniture. What a blessing to have a woodworking husband who can make such needed items.

This inspired me to look around the house and realize that everything — with the exception of a sofa and loveseat we bought new in 2004 — is either a second-hand purchase or handmade by my talented husband. The result is eclectic and unpolished — and yet it somehow represents us very well.

After all, we’re kind of eclectic and unpolished too.
