Andrew and I have been married for seven years. At our wedding, we received many wonderful and useful gifts. Among them was a toaster oven. This toaster oven had its quirks, but lasted us for the past seven years. A couple of months ago, my mother-in-law came to visit and while she was here, the toaster oven basically stopped working. A few weeks later, we were at a family gathering when my mother-in-law gave us a toaster oven which she had not been using.
I used it for the first time last week and was delighted to not have to bang on the toaster (as I had to my previous one) in order to enjoy a piece of toast! I am grateful that my mother-in-law shared this appliance. Not only did it save us some money (thank you!) but I am also able to look around my kitchen at this and the other small appliances and dishes that she has given us and I am grateful to her and happy that I have a reminder of her daily!
