I'm in the process of revamping my mother's house now that she is gone, which means going through lots of papers, and all the "stuff" that she collected over the years. As a child of the Depression, my mother was loathe to throw out anything. I can still hear her say, "There's nothing that I've gotten rid of that I haven't been sorry about after." Well, as much as I fought her tooth and nail on this my whole life, I realize I've got a similar affliction. Almost everything I consider tossing comes with the question, "Now, I wonder who would like this? Who would get some good out of this?"
There comes a point when you have to get rid of certain things, and what better time than spring? Revamping and discarding bad habits, resolving to change some traits toward a more positive direction, decluttering the soul and mind; all good things to work at. I think that's in part what resurrection is about - it can feel so good to throw "stuff" out whether its material or of the mind. Anybody need some meatloaf pans?
