I will be revealing a bit about myself in this blog, and it is too funny and amazing not to share….So we have a TV from 1992–we don’t watch much TV, so it is fine for the occasional DVD movie etc. I do a thing called Freecycle where you can give and receive things for free (it is AMAZING by the way!!!! I highly recommend the yahoo group=-). A nice lady offered a 2002 Toshiba TV, and she clearly said it is too big for women to carry, and I would need 2 men to carry it. I
don’t have 2 men in my life that I would ask to move this TV, so something in my intuition said, just go for it with your daughter and see what happens. She was game as she wanted to get the TV out of her apartment (note it is 150 pounds and about 3.5 feet by 3.5 feet, so just a HUGE HEAVY BOX as you can see in the pictures!!)
We trekked over tonight, and I felt like somehow it was all meant to be, so I was kind of excited about the adventure. Firstly, the nice lady was an angel to allow us to try this and to help….then the nice maintenance man saw us with the TV and offered help into the car….and then it DIDN’T FIT IN THE BACK OF MY FOUR DOOR SEDAN. Honestly, I was about to give up at that point, but now the nice lady had her TV outside, and I am sure she didn’t want us to drag it back up again!!!! So they mentioned I should get a cab…but it didn’t fit into any normal and even one SUV cab we found (!!!???@#$%@#%$#$%). So we called a big SUV cab and this VERY NICE man agreed to haul the TV alone while my daughter and I drove behind him to get back to my loft….
Angel #?? came over to help the cab driver lift it into the back of the SUV, and we were off….My daughter and I were able to use the dolly (that I got from a friend angel) and the story goes on…just angels popping up at just the right times….the TV is so huge once we got it home I was almost like, I am not sure if we can handle this in our loft but my daughter said oh yes….oh yes….we are keeping it=-) So I hooked it up with the lovely Cable people on the phone, and it has really a nice picture!!!!!
What is my point…sometimes there are angels who come out of the woodwork and it is fun to take on adventures like this–if only to experience the goodness and kindness of humans….no words to express how nice all these people were….tears were shed and hugs were shared…..
Laverty Life Links: When have you climbed a big mountain and have literally felt like you were carried by angels throughout the process? How was your life transformed as a result?
PS: Clearly we could afford a new flat screen TV with home delivery…but that wouldn’t be any fun, would it?! Well…. maybe the next time that would be a little fun=-)
