Wrinkles Away

Today is laundry day and having a banker as a son and a husband who wears a uniform.....means there is lots of ironing to be done.
My kids make fun of my ancient ironing board.....yes it is very old and heavy! But it still has lots of good in it. It isn't the prettiest thing but it does a great job in standing up to my weekly ironing.
I do intend to hang on to it until it can no longer stand on it's four legs.
This got me thinking.....why do we feel like it is of dire importance to get rid of something old and worn for something new and shiny, even if the old item is still doing it's job?
There is beauty in the old and worn.....memories....I love and appreciate the old and worn....
