It must be Christmas!

It's Christmas at our house! I know it's only February...but, when we found out today that our stuff wasn't stolen, but rather stored....woo hoo!! It's Christmas! I've been in mourning over the cookware that previously belonged to my Grandma and Great Aunt, my favorite pressure cooker, my southwestern style lamps, and other things that mean nothing to anyone, except for me. Butchy is so happy that her lawncare stuff isn't gone for good. We're both so relieved that our old friend, is still our friend. We both really love him. We've gotten all our stuff back and our friend, too. It's a good day! Merry Christmas to us!

This has been a lesson in gratitude. We are grateful for things that were already ours. We're grateful to have a friend back that we'd never lost. Our stuff isn't very valuable and it is just Stuff. But, it's the memories attached to those material items that matter more to us than anything else. I'm grateful for the wonderful memories I have. I'm just plumb grateful!


Blogger Queenie declared....

I'm so glad you can get your stuff! I'm glad that everything turned out okay! GLAD! GLAD! GLAD!
Okay, I'm also out of words because I just woke up, but you know what I mean.

    I'm older than Rolling Stone magazine, younger than color television, bigger than a Xbox, smaller than a Winnebago, taller than a goat, shorter than a horse, wider than a parking meter, "narrower" than the Space Needle, serious as a heart attack, sillier than the tickles, smarter than the average bear, dumber than my Mom, prettier than dirt, "uglier" than a sunset, girlie as a pryncess, moves through crowds like a linebacker, anal as an accountant, laid-back as a slug, darker than white chocolate, lighter than butterscotch pudding, louder than a whisper, "quieter" than a fog horn
