I recently promised myself that once each week I would go through a drawer, a box, a bin, a basket…and re-visit the “stuff.” Share. Sell. Give. Re-use, re-purpose, re-cycle or (gasp, last option) throw it away.
At the bottom of today’s rather weighty drawer that has been sorted (see first paragraph) I was delighted to find a music collection that a friend of mine put together for me. I lost track of it about a year ago. So it was with delight I declared, “I wondered where that went!” and I’ve been listening to it all afternoon.
As my friendship has grown and deepened the lyrics that were so carefully selected for me are even more meaningful than they were when I received them. It’s a gift that has given itself all over again. Joy!
