New Year, New Start: Day 6

clip_image002The games people play…or don’t! It might have been fun once, but perhaps a piece or two is missing, no one remembers the directions, or your kids have simply aged out. Tastes change so do people. Don’t hang on to something that’s not useful any more.

This is a good time to put in a note about blessing others. Why keep something that someone else might be able to enjoy?  Sometimes we need help to recognize what should have gone in the trash a long time ago. Other times we need a gentle nudge to let things go and let them have a new home. If one of your games or puzzles (in good condition!) can be shared, and it will take you less than 5 minutes to put a “donation bag” in your trunk, then go right ahead!

Lucky or not, we've moved quite an bit with hubby's job so we have forced purging. Each transfer forces me to reevaluate my "stuff." Now that we are going to be in this place for many, many years I can only imagine what I will accumulate :(

Can't do this one, daughter. Even though they are old and falling apart, the grandkids still ask for them; and then, they will be needed for the "greats." lol

Maybe I can "do" tomorrow's suggestion. Love, Mom
