Moments...Winks.... The Journey....

It was difficult... unloading the Big...Old Cupboard... last week....
It...was such a Workhorse....
It held... So Much....
I...for a moment... was organized... : )
Had a place... for everything...
The Wine.... set perfectly...in the rack... I bought from Geri....
{It...went with the Old Cupboard... it was perfect there...and needed to stay with...}
I have collected... Odd...Vintage Wine Glasses... for years...
and had them all... neatly put away... inside the top doors... of the Old Friend....
along with... all sorts of things... that...were Perfect... inside....
The Old Harvest Table... was Piled High... with the Cupboard's Contents...
{and Chairs...and Floor...: ) }
as we shoved it... across the floor...and to the door....
I moved vehicles, while The Boys... loaded the Big Piece... onto the Ford...
They had it all loaded by the time... I got back...from Shuffling!
It rested on it's back... for the ride...to the FUSO....
{Too much Snow...to back the FUSO in...}
Then... we struggled with it... precariously.... from the Ford...onto..the Box Truck....
It is one piece... one... Big...Piece...
John and I, loaded another cupboard... my Friends... had also purchased....
then... Saturday afternoon.... I delivered them...to their Beautiful.... New...Home....
When I arrived.... at my friend's... home.... she Greeted me...at her door....: )
and took me through her Amazing... Old... Old... Home....
: )
What a Treat!
 
She asked... if I'd like a glass of wine... while we waited...for the Guys... to help unload...
I agreed... to a small one... {still had many miles to go....}
She pulled from her cupboard... a pair of Wine Glasses... for us... and smiled....
"I bought these from you...months ago... remember? I LOVE Them!"....
I said... yes.....: )
They are...Beautiful... so...Fine...Long Stemmed.... paper thin...and etched....
She had bought... five.... and...I thought there was a 6th... in the house...
but...I have a hundred...wine glasses.... I told her... when she bought them... I'd look for the other....
{I forgot...}
The Guys...showed up... and Whisked the Little Cupboard... right in....
Then... we all grabbed hold... of the Big...Cupboard....
as we took it down... off the FUSO....
something rolled... inside....
and Crashed...
It was something....
glass....
I said... Oh...dear... I missed something.... and I told my friend... to get something... for the shards.... what ever it is... it's broken.....in a Million Pieces... now... : (
We placed the cupboard... in what seemed to be... the Most... perfect spot.... EVER...like it was Meant to be....
{unlike... in front of a Picture Window...: ) }
We pulled the wrap off... that was holding the doors.....
to pull... the broken... whatever... out....
and there...Sat...
as Pretty as You Please...
 in Perfect condition....
the
 Matching...
6th.... Wine Glass....
My Friend's... face... turned white....
She said....
"I Don't Believe It! I have Chills".... 
: )
I didn't....
I was...a bit, surprised....
but...
I believe... it was 'The Wink'... I needed to see....
that the Old Cupboard...was... 'Home'...
Exactly... where it was supposed to be... : )
I told her... these moments... 'winks'... happen... all of the time...
if... we...
take the time...
to see them...: )
You see...the old...things... they are... Old...Souls...
My Friends....
who have Gifted... me...with so much....
Including... my Friends.... who...Hold Dear.... the Old Cupboards....as well...
The weekend...was Full... of interesting... moments....
It was a long... day... yesterday...
Appointments... shopping....
I twisted my ankle... a year ago...
it spoke...  LOUD... by the end of the day...
I barely made it from the last store to the car...
{I...even contemplated...as I was checking out....asking for help...to get to Sally...
 THAT would have been...a first...Ever! }
I was done...
I have... appointments...again... this Morn...
then... I need to unload... another Old Cupboard... in the House...
One... I have held... so very dear.....
I deliver it... Friday....
It's going to a Beautiful...Home... as well.....
I'll have to do... some Fancy Footwork....
finding Homes... for it's contents... oh my....
I can walk... this Morn....
but... I'll be wearing sandals.... {I'd go barefooted... if I could...}
A Surgeon... has agreed to meet with Peg...on Thursday... Her Radiologist... is working Very Hard...for her... at The Mayo.....
Thank You...So Very Much...for Your Continued Prayers.....
Love...to You....
