Emma's Dresser Is Done
It was a . . . b e a s t. . . .to say the least!
Just a hard project for me to complete.
I tried a new technique and I wasn't sure if I did the right thing (still not sure)
The main thing is
Emma likes it!
This is how it looks now all pretty with fresh paint
This is how it looked before
Poor thing has a story behind it.
This is the story (stay with me it is good)
I has been on the "look-out" for a night stand for Emma.
So everywhere I went I looked, and looked.
One day I was coming home from dinner with friends
when I could see furniture on a sidewalk
I drove past, but then like all "junkers" I turned around
and went back to see what was there. . .
This little dresser was sitting there with a $25 price on it
No way! Way too much for this piece.
And besides I don't pay over $10 for most furniture.
I told the young girl I would give her $10.
She agreed to it.
We loaded it in my car. . . (it is heavy)
When I went to pay her I only had a $50 bill
I ask her if she had change and she said no, she had no money.
She was selling things so she could get a tank of gas.
I ask her if she trusted me to run and get some change
and I promised I would be right back?
Hmmmmmm, she hesitated, and then said yes.
I drove to the nearest store and got change.
She was waiting for me.
I said, "I told you I would be right back."
She said, "You are an honest lady aren't you?"
I told her yes I am and I value my integrity very much.
Then she told me she didn't have honest people in her life.
She was trying to get away from an abusive relationship and needed the money to buy gas.
After hearing her story I felt bad that I talked her down
on the price of the dresser.
I gave her $20 and told her to get away from the abuse.
I prayed for that young woman and I hope she did leave the abusive relationship.
The dresser/night stand has a new look
and a new home.
It will be loved and taken care of.
