My dear friend in Richland, Margie Beldin, graciously allows me to share her dilemma: What to do with all this STUFF? Much of it, she explained, was hubby’s from his Air Force career and she wasn’t sure what he wanted done with it. But here she looks sadly on a big basket and two boxes of her own memorabilia, and sighs. And sighs a second time.
The problem Margie faced is totally understandable by most of us. We have centered our time and energy on gathering facts and possible facts and have paid scant attention to how to evaluate all of that accumulated STUFF. Not to mention the true artifacts.
Sorry, I can’t tell you how Margie’s coming along on this project. My only hope with sharing her story with you today is to hopefully motivate YOU to do SOMETHING with all your STUFF. Before your children toss is all out when you’re gone. And they will. If you don’t have time to do it now, yourself, why do you think they will take the time???
