Came across a short post I wrote 5 years ago. Still holds true today:
Today was a very lovely day. The weather was perfect, the sky was clear, and the ground was perfect for planting. Today, we invested some money, time, and sweat into furnishing our deck with chairs, plants, and some other aesthetics. Lowe’s was blessed with our presence 3 times today. With each visit came more goodies. We vowed to replace all patio furniture even purchased a side table to go with our chairs. When we arrived home, we realized that even though our present table looked worn, tarnished, old, and weathered it still held the promise for future use… All it needed was a little bit of TLC…someone to recognize its worth despite its present disposition. Now it looks good as new and fits in perfectly with all the “newbies”. Who knew that a 5 year old table would look as good as new….A LITTLE TLC goes a long way…Take time to love. It holds great power to restore.
Tender Hearts, Loving Hands, and a bit of Creativity can infuse life into many dead or lifeless situations.
