This morning I was going through a list in my head of some possession I lost in the fire. I am trying not to do this because it makes me sad but I keep reminding myself that it’s only stuff and I really did want to downsize some of our stuff. We have accumulated a lot of stuff over 36 years of marriage but having the largest fire in California history doing it for you wasn’t the way I wanted to do it! I was thinking more like a garage sale.
So as I laid in bed this morning, thoughts went through my head. Oh, my grandmother’s pretty pink flowered China that I inherited. I know it was expensive and she didn’t have many expensive items. It was given to her by a wealthy church member from the years my grandfather and grandmother pastored a church in Portland, Oregon. This lady loved my grandmother so much! It was back in the day when most pastors where on a very limited budget and grandmother loved to serve tea in it when the church ladies came over.
During my morning reminiscing this is what my sweet husband Joe is hearing from the other room. “Oh my grandmother’s pink china! And, oh, my wedding china!” He calls back from the other room, “What about your vagina?”.... I said china! “Good, because I’m pretty sure we’re not covered for vaginas!”
Back to reality, I safely landed, in a pool of laughter!
Have a blessed day! And, remember, it’s only stuff!
