Several weeks (months?) ago when we decided to make Iowa our home base, we also made a decision to get rid of our apartment in Wisconsin (where I work) to save some money. So, I sent out a note to a few friends asking if anybody knew of any rooms for rent. All I needed was a place to sleep and shower.
Within 24 hours, I had three offers, two of which was in the individual’s private home! Such generosity and openness. I accepted the offer of the first friend who replied and a week or so later we had dinner to talk about the specifics (and a million other topics). During dinner, we discovered that she was in need of a bedroom set and I had one to give away (since our new house doesn’t have a guest bedroom)!
On moving day, we took the bed, mattress, dresser, and side table over to my friend’s house. This was a tough one for my husband, because the bedroom set came from his parents’ house. So it was great to know that the bed would be in good hands.
Last night, I spent the first night in my new room at my friend’s house. And guess what? I got to sleep in our old guest bed!!
You give a little and you get a little.
Happy Tuesday my friends!
