I didn't expect it to be much, probably too bad of shape to even want. But, we were surprised when I looked it over, sturdy table, tight chairs, just needed a little cleaning. And on the top of this little pine table was years of someone's memories carved into the top. I had to have it. So for $40 bucks, I hauled this table home. Without destroying the memories, I gently sanded the top and recoated it.
It was a gift. Without asking, God knew the desire of my heart and that I would want this table. So, the memories will continue as my family grows, as grandchildren come to visit and leave their mark on my little table.
