The Rest of the Story!
We were looking for a couch. We really needed a couch. Really!! When people sat on our love seat we would have to say..."Watch out for the nine inch nail that is sticking out below the cushion" or "I know it's really low on the ground and you may have to roll yourself off the loveseat".
Last week we found a leather couch and it was really cheap. The rest of the story is that the while we really needed A couch, we really wanted either a sectional or two couches. After all we do have six people in our family. At the same warehouse sale where we found our couch we also found the couch part of this sectional. It did have a tiny little tear on it and it is obviously meant to be part of a sectional, but we were able to get this for $150.
We were a bit nervous about this purchase. When we got it home we realized that our living room really is smaller than it appears. It took us 24 hours to figure out how to arrange these two LARGE sofas! But, we are very happy with the results.
So, God provided more than we imagined and we are so very thankful!!! Two leather couches for $350.
I'm also thankful to my parents and my aunt for their Christmas gift last year and their patience as we took 11 months to buy the couches.
And...we still have some $$ to finish out the room. Hopefully it won't take us 11 months to finish it out.
