We’re preparing for our fellowship vacation these days after we have finished with some spring cleaning in the lower ground of our house. With the onset of floods in our town we find it necessary to replace our almost four decade sofa built by my father in his younger years. He was so keen on creating furniture after his carpentry course that he almost completed our major furniture in the house consisting hardwood sofa with leather seats, wooden octagon table, various square study table, few corner tables and wardrobe cabinets including small wooden storage for jewelries like rings, women's necklaces and other valuables.
I grew up seeing all my father’s creations inside our house which was also designed by him and all of which are making me sentimental and emotional every time. My father is gone 16 years ago but his presence is all around us which makes us feel that he’s always here making sure that we’re ok and fine even if he’s not with us anymore. Sometimes to fight the feeling of missing him we think of the times when we’re happy on our picnics together and all our outdoor activities which he loves doing when we’re still young kids. He even bought a land and turned it into a farm and fish pond to stay on weekends and vacations. He loves taking the family out to the countryside when he’s free and I missed it. I just love sweet family memories.
With the increasing occurrences of natural catastrophe and accidents it’s good to keep in mind safety precautions in order to lessen if not prevent those things that can happen to anyone anytime. At home you should keep a list of possible causes of fire and let every member of the family know how to do regular monitoring of the listed items. It’s better to be always aware of your surroundings inside and out so you’ll be alarmed if something cropped up.
Well some have the advantage of preparing safe items that could prevent it from occurring or withstand it when it’s already there like a fire resistant printed tablecloth and other flame retardant digital printings that can be used in conferences but safe enough for the fire. Glad to hear about these things as it’s good to be equipped with knowledge on fire prevention, safety and protection as well.
