It's Just Furniture, Right?
I don't need extra furniture. I have no room for another old Chifferobe. I have no need for another old dresser base.
I will make room for them and treasure always, Just Because- because they were my Grandma Mobley's.
I know she never dreamed anyone would want much less cherish some piece of furniture she had. It's just furniture, right?
A similar Chifferobe [I already have] has no sentimental value. It will be stripped to become a utilitarian shelving unit. After a little work on my two treasures they will each slip into a spot that will be just right.
Are they worth a lot of money? No, not at all. But they are worth a lot to me.
Why? Just Because. Just because they were my Grandma's.
