This is one roadside-yes, roadside- find that was worth blogging about. As many of you know, there are many aspects of becoming a first time parent that can be tedious, time-consuming, and even stressful. For me, one of those things has been finding the little pieces of furniture needed for the nursery. I am not really one for decorating, but I have been looking for a change-table/dresser that matches the rest of the furniture in the room (namely, the bookshelf, crib, and desk). Even if I don't do much decorating, at least the colours will look uniform. I have looked on Kijiji numerous times, but haven't found much.
Jake and I were out for a walk tonight, and for some reason I chose a different route. We take this route maybe once every two or three weeks, so I know it was God-ordained from the start. We had walked barely 5 minutes when I spotted the dresser on the side of the road. It's garbage day tomorrow, and people put out all sorts of treasures. I couldn't believe it. The dresser was the perfect height, the perfect colour, and even has some beautifully designed drawers!
I felt like crying a little bit. I'm sure these people could have sold it on Kijiji for a good $60. God knows what our hearts desire, and this was surely above and beyond what my heart had been desiring. I'm so thankful to him for his blessing in even these free things, the small things.
I can't wait to fill it with baby clothes and diapers.
