Use the New Dishes
Last week I was looking in my cupboard at all of my beautiful dishes and it hit me. ..In all the years I’ve had those dishes, I bet I’ve only used them 3 or 4 times. How sad. My husband who urged me to buy them has passed away, and all of my children no longer live at home. And the dishes still sit there waiting to be used.
Why do we do this? Save things for some unknown special day.
I say , “Use the good dishes.” Enjoy them. Don’t wait to pass them on to someone after you are gone. Use them until they are all used up. And if you are not going to use them, give them to someone who will.
And so it is with other things in our lives that we are waiting to do when the time is right.
“Oh we’ll get married when we save enough money.”
“We’ll have kids when we are ready for them…not now.”
“We’ll buy that new house when things are perfect.”
You will never have enough money. You will never be ready. And things will never be perfect.
Just do it! Use the good dishes!
