I know things are just things, but I love when God shows up in "things"...
I've wanted gold flatware for years. I've never found the right set though. You can imagine my surprise when I found out that my stepdad (who is amazing, by the way) had a stash of my mom's gold flatware, just sitting and collecting dust. WHAT?! I never even knew she had those! All those years of me passing up sets here and there paid off...cause now I own the most beautiful set AND it belonged to my mom.
Like I said, things are just things...but I don't have any "things" that belonged to my mom. Stupid choices at the end of her life, made her give away or sell nearly everything she owned. It's always made me a little sad to not have anything to hold or pass down of hers...and now this set. I have something so special!
Now, who wants to come over for a fancy dinner party? Actually, forget the dinner party, we are using this "just because". No more dust on the gold flatware!
And to top that week off, a letter that she wrote me during my senior year of high school was found! She had the most beautiful handwriting I've ever seen.
(I want to make a necklace using her "mom" signature from that letter - anyone have a good shop recommendation for this?)
