On Black Friday, we did our little part to help boost the economy. A little before dinner time, we ventured out to make a purchase we had been planning for a while. Our intention had been to buy a trunk...a nice piece of furniture in which we could store Jude's things. We found what we had been looking for...only better. We bought a pretty chest with a padded seat that can be used as a bench. Now, I just need to find the right fabric to reupholster the seat.
In this chest, we can store Jude's stuffed animals and blankets...as well as keep in one place all the cards we received, the newspapers, the books, and anything else we would like to access easily. There are so many meaningful things that we want to keep out...yet safe. And, on that bench in the corner of our bedroom, we can spend time reading, praying, thinking, or even just remembering. We have so many sweet memories, and I am glad for a physical place to keep them all together.
