Wednesday – Mid-week Humor
Last weekend I spent three days (we had Monday off for President’s Day – no comment there) organizing and boxing up hundreds of ceramic cats that my mother-in-law had collected until her death about 1 month ago. The lesson for me is that I don’t want to leave anyone with the task of trying to find homes for these type of cherished items. Wouldn’t it be better to give them away, donate them and not leave them to someone else to “care for”. If I had liked ceramic cats, they would be in my home – nothing against the cute collectables (this picture only shows a fraction of the collection), but I don’t need or want them taking up space in my home.
Embrace the teachings of Marie Kondo (The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy) and if it does NOT spark joy – let it journey elsewhere. Hopefully I will find new homes where these cats will spark joy for someone else.
Morale of the Story: Don’t keep “stuff” that others will have to deal with, it does NOT spark joy for them.
