I picked everyday dishes that would match everything.
Yawn. White. Boring. Practical.
The dishes of a young bride who lived in a rented house, with boring white walls.
Sometimes boring is reliable. Boring is faithful and steady. It may not be exciting, but it lasts. Like my dishes. Through four boys, four moves and possibly 21,000 meals. The plates have a few chips, some gray scratches from the silverware, and a few haven't survived the unloading and loading in the hands of the little men here.
But my faithful friend has replenished my supply. She has brought newness to my old friends. This is a box that my BFF Shirley collected for me.
She's a faithful friend. She thought of me while she was out thrift shopping. She went the extra mile. She scrubbed the marks off of them. I am thankful to have such a friend.
Do you have any old reliable things in your home? Do you have faithful friends, who you don't see enough of? I am blessed with both.
Thank You, Shirley!
