We had to get rid of our old old couch at the beginning of the summer. It had a busted spring. So we spent the last 8 or 9 weeks with my lift recliner as our only furniture. Then that broke on one side but we kept it cause it was still somewhat functional but it was too painful for me to sit in. We couldn’t afford to buy something new and every time I found a hopeful prospect on Freecycle or Craigslist it always fell through. Then my church emailed us saying that some members were moving from a house to an apartment. Though nothing of theirs worked out for us, that got our need onto the church grapevine. Then when the church itself wanted to get rid of a sofa, we were the first people they called. It was a real blessing. They even had a bunch of deacons load it into one of their trucks, drive it to us and help Husband get it into the apt! Even though we never would have picked this couch ourselves, it’s free, in great shape, and it’s a sleeper sofa so now we’ve got extra space in case of overnight guests. I feel like I’ve been given my living room back. Because of my arthritis, spaces without comfortable seating are not really accessible for me. Which kind of had me confined to my bedroom when I was home. Which was depressing.
