We got rid of a book shelf. Yes, we really did. Yes, we are homeschoolers. Yes, we read a lot. Yes, my husband built this bookshelf. It is beautiful. But, there are 5 bookshelves in the room and my husband built the others. There is no other place in the house for it. I have baseboard heat which really limits the number of walls that I am willing to lean a 6 foot tall shelf against and all my school books are in the upstairs kitchen.
A little part of me is anxious that if we move I won’t have enough bookshelves but this is a mighty big piece of furniture to keep “in case”. I don’t want to live “in case”. I want to trust that God will provide. And getting rid of a big piece of furniture is really freeing. It gives room to breathe.
The best part; It went to some sweet friends and my husband is tickled that it is gone. Now, for something pretty to hang on the wall.
