There was a 1970s sitcom called "Rhoda", whose main character was Rhoda Morganstern, a yuppie-type young lady in New York City.
One day when Rhoda and her husband Joe arrived home, they found their apartment in shambles after a burglary.
As Rhoda looked around in shock and disappointment, she exclaimed, “My blender! It’s gone! And I didn’t even get to use ‘puree’!. She had never used the blender's then-amazing ability to puree a smoothie, or something similar.
Live with fun and enjoyment.
Use your good stuff. Use the silver and don't worry. Enjoy your precious keepsakes. Now is the time.
A sweet wife kept her husband’s wonderful gift of a cashmere sweater safely in special moth-proof wrapping, for someday, when she might wear it. Later, her husband found it in its box and wrapping, never worn, after she died unexpectedly.
Live in joy and love.
