How Old Metal Glider Porch And Patio Furniture Can Lighten Up Lifes Stress.......

Updated on April 18, 2012

Glide Away A Bad Day

Yesterday I had alot of family issues going on.We had a terrible storm and one of our big dogs thought it would be better to crawl out of their house instead of staying their doghouse.She clawed through the crawlspace door and rode out the storm.After the storm she would come out!! My husband had to literally crawl through brown recluse spiders and all other creepy under the house things to pull her out.While he was under there he noticed she had destroyed almost ALL of our almost new ductwork.SIGH.That is just one example of how life can through you a curveball of unexpected expenses.This morning as I reflected on the night before I sat down in my vintage metal glider.I had my cup of coffee and my bible......As I watched the sun come up and the birds start their song.....I begin to glide.I began to reflect on everything in a more positive light.I realized some people do not have homes and I shouldnt complain about taking care of mine,I realized some people are unable to bare children so I should take that into account everyday,even when mine are bickering with each other.I realized my blessings soooooooo outweighed any plight I was going through.We are here alive and healthy and involved in a business I love.I am not saying a old metal glider for your porch will be a magic pill BUT it was a wonderful place to sit and reflect this morning for me.Blessing to all......

    The photos look SOOOO inviting. I think everyone should have one, don't you? I agree that life can sure throw a curve ball and gratitude is a wonderful antidote for complaining. One empowers, the other creates a sense of victimhood. Nice article and good luck in the contest. :)

    We always had gliders when I was younger and they are wonderful. I would like to have one again. I like your pictures. Congrats on your Hubnugget nomination.
