Steve and I have been working on a long overdue project this week.
It’s going to be fantastic, but sometimes things don’t go as planned
I bought this old stained glass window from a friend a few years ago. It has been moved and displayed with never a definite plan in mind. Finally, it was going to get a permanent home and it would be perfect
As I cleaned and scraped and prepared the window, one of the panes cracked.
I cried!!! This antique, fantastic piece of art is ruined. I called the glass shop and they don’t do soldering . What do I do?
I don’t have one!
Then I started thinking……we live in a 1903 home that has endured so many years of history, abuse and life as we put her back together. Me, as a human, has screwed up some many times and I have many many cracks.
So I asked Steve “do you want me to find something else to replace it?” He said “nope.”
Some people in my life will come into our home and immediately point out the crack. That’s ok. They see it, it’s not a lie. But I choose to embrace the crack. Just like me.
If you notice the broken pane, maybe look to the immediate next pane and see the beauty.
