Yesterday, I noticed that one of my neighbors was putting in new windows and doing a little updating. There was a huge pile next to a truck that looked ever so tempting. So, I thought, "what's the worse that can happen?"
I pulled into their driveway & asked what they were going to do with their windows & a few doors. He said that they were on their way to the dump.
I couldn't hold back from saying, "That's so sad. Can I take a few?"
He gladly helped me put them in the car & we attached the doors to the roof of the van. Thankfully, we lived close!
Now, I don't have any beautifully edited pictures since my software is down. But, it's not about the pictures or final product today. It's just about getting out there & asking someone what they're going to do with their "junk".
Here are the doors:
I only took 5 windows. I didn't want to seem too crazy.
I'm an introvert by nature, so asking someone if I can take their junk is difficult. My heart pumps out of my chest, my palms sweat, & I even stutter. I don't know why I get so nervous. But, yesterday I learned that it never hurts to ask.
And I'm glad that I did!
