Precious Items

Precious items

This week I have help decluttering my house.  It’s great having help, however, it takes a strong person to manage my resistance! Some items are hard to let go.

Here’s one:

A plain, simply functional box. For the uneducated eye it’s a pretty generic piece of furniture. But for me, it’s a metaphor of a happy phase of my life – homeschooling.

I used this cabinet to organize and store paintings.

I built it myself to fit perfectly in a closet.

Today, I’m letting it go. Marcia, my helper says, “I’m celebrating your release into a new future. You’ll have the artistic phase in your heart”

I cry, the happy memories flooding my body. I resist. I relent. I let it go.

She’s right. It’s not the box that holds the joy of painting with my children. It’s my heart. And that’s not going anywhere but out into the world!
