Cheaper Than Therapy

“A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.” Proverbs 15:30

I bought this sweater a few weeks ago at my local Goodwill. It made me laugh out loud at my first sighting and several ladies around me looked at me strange. Then I had to show them and they laughed too.

And since I was afraid that I could not possibly describe it with words, I had to buy it and take it home. It was $4.00 after my “customer appreciation day” discount.

I stopped by my friend-who-had-the-flu’s house on the way home and she got a big kick out of it as well.

I posted pictures of it on my Facebook and numerous people nominated it ugliest sweater ever.

The thing is, though, that the laughs continue. I can pull up a picture of it on my computer, or look at it hanging in my closet and smile just thinking about it. It is truly an object of joy!  Everything about it makes me laugh, from its hideously pink color to the sad look on the mismatched clothed bear.  And it was even MY SIZE!  We were meant to be. 

These last few weeks have been trying with all the snow, trying to entertain the kids and husband while we’re all bored, and finding my motivation for going out to the barn to feed the animals. I have to say that having purchased this sweater has given me my happy thought.

Now, if you ever catch me WEARING it, you’ll know I’ve finally lost it!

May you too find an object of joy to make your week, month, or year. And if you happen to collect ugly bear sweaters, have I got a deal for you!

“All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.” Proverbs 15:15
