“And I’ll be my brother’s keeper. So the whole world would know that we’re not alone.” Matt Maher

Due to a series of unusual events, at 2:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon my Thursday design team was done and I had almost completed my pricing/photo taking.  The fact I was wrapping up was the unusual piece – I’m typically working until 5 or even 6 p.m. getting things priced (and even then I miss any number of items!).  Knowing we’d all been working since early that morning without a break – I asked if anyone wanted to go and grab some lunch.

What happened next wasn’t anything special – and yet it was nothing short of remarkable.  Four middle aged women talked and laughed over sandwiches for the next hour and a half.  We learned more about each other as we shared stories about our kids, our parents, our husbands.  As we left I felt so grateful to have a ever widening circle of people I can share life with.

Similarly, I hope everyone who walks through the front doors at Jubilee Furniture (store hours are Fridays from 1 to 8 and Saturdays from 9 to 4) senses all of the following:

  • a genuine appreciation that you’ve come
  • a desire to help in whatever way we can
  • a hope to connect with you in a way that feels honoring and valuing of who you are
  • a wish to share a few minutes of life with you to remind us both we are not alone and though this world holds an immense capacity for hurt and pain, thankfully – I  believe – it holds an even larger capacity for friendship, laughter, grace and kindness

And – oh yeah – we also have 30,000 square feet of amazing used furniture!  What follows are photos of some of the furniture donated this week:

That is some beautiful furniture. Do you guys ship to Canada? I live in Ottawa, and if I have the money, wouldn't mind buying a few pieces.

Thanks for asking, Bill. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an inexpensive way to ship - ANYWHERE - so the answer is, nope. Sorry!
