That Ah-ha Moment...

Since the beginning of time - or at least since we moved into our home in 2002 we've been fighting with the bottom corner cabinet.  The kitchen is already cozy (read small) and storage space is premium.  The corner cabinet is one of those that may have once housed a Lazy Susan type contraption.  (In our household this element is referred to as a Lazy Lucy because that's how our children translated it at one time...)

It's the only place where we have enough room to store baking sheets, the griddle, cutting boards of various sizes, cooling racks, well you get the gest.

Often times we would risk life and limb to adventure into the deep dark crevices of this cupboard for an item or (gasp) even the occasional frustrated cleaning moment.  The later usually occurred AFTER I attempted to find something and knocked myself senseless on the top of the cabinet space.

Recently I saw in Pinterest a picture of a cabinet organizer for the lids of pots and pans and I thought this was exactly what I needed for this cupboard.

I didn't have a clue what I was looking for and Googled "kitchen organizers" at Bed Bath and Beyond and eventually found this in Drawer & Cabinet Organizers.

The next day I went to the store and purchased it - $12.99.  I proudly presented it to my "Mr. Fix it" husband and was delighted to hear the clanging of pans being moved from the cabinet.  He installed it out away from the inside wall the same equal distance of the dividers which provided us with an extra section.  

It looks amazing!  I thought to myself - why the heck didn't we do this sooner?  Hmmmm what can I organize next!?

My Faith gives me Direction

I tried to make a change.
I trusted in God to know what the right thing was for me now. 
I know He made the right choice.

The beauty of it - once I made the decision to try a change
it was out of my hands.
I have never felt so confident.
What happened would happen.

I have so many opportunities before me right now.
And feel reassured to know the things which are making me happy right now
are the right things.

Not to mention hearing from so many well wishers and supporters.
It's wonderful to have such good friends - past and present.
Talk about moving forward with confidence - I am for sure.

I truly don't need to let the weight of other's selfish immaturity
hold me down.
I have strength in my faith and support of family and friends.
I know what I'm doing is the right thing -
whereever I go.
