New Piano

posted in Uncategorized |

We are the proud owners of a new piano! Well new to us. It’s probably about 60 years old actually.

An interesting story about how I met the man that we bought it from. Back in March I went to the Social Security Office to get Little Boy’s social security number. While I waited I sat next to a man named Mike. We started chatting and I discovered that he’s a retired music teacher and we had a lot in common including both being Christians.

Anyway during the course of the conversation I asked “You don’t happen to know anyone with a piano for sale do you?” And he said “As a matter of fact, I do!” He was relocating and would have a piano for sale in June.

He gave me his phone number and said to call at the end of May and we’d sort something out. I gave him a call, he called be back when he got in town, and we arranged to see the piano tonight.

It’s the same piano that was in his mother’s house for years. He doesn’t know exactly how old it is but his mother had it since 1958. Since pianos don’t really get old, just well used and sometimes neglected, which this one is not, age isn’t really important.

It’s a great little spinet, just perfect for what we want. And he gave us an amazing price - only $350. Considering I was mentally prepared to pay $1000 for a good piano, I am thrilled!! We will pay to have movers move it next week and we will soon be making music in our new home.

I believe that God definitely had a plan that day in the SSA office. Praise Him!
