I am barely squeezing this entry in... and this dresser reflects my own Cinderella story.
Almost 4 years ago, I found myself with a lot of idle time, after being let go from my job of almost a decade. My spirit and heart bruised, I tried to put together the pieces of my life, which had been torn apart from addiction. Feeling restless, irritable, & discontent, I started painting furniture...and haven't stopped. This outlet saved my life - sincerely. Today, my career as a Social Worker is back on track, I'm a third partner in a brick & mortar, I'm able to mentor women in my community, & by the grace of God, my soul is well again.
I'm in love with this dresser. It's imperfect & tattered, and I can't stop staring at it.
