Let There Be Light

I’ve mentioned this before but it bears repeating. I live in a really old house. It’s a beautiful home, built in the mission style with lots of built-ins, pocket doors and all the original woodwork. For all the beauty, sometimes it’s lacking in modern updates.My hall closet has always drove me a little crazy because it has one of those lights that you still have to pull down on the cord to get it to turn on. Now, I know what you’re thinking…just call an electrician and get a new light. Well, I want to but I always think that if I am going to pay an electrician for a house call, I kinda need more than just one little light to fix. ….I know, I’m weird. So, because of my weirdness, I am constantly playing “catch the swinging pull-cord in the dark closet” …it’s a game I never win. Then one day I am walking through Sam’s Club and all my problems were solved. Okay, maybe not ALL of my problems, but definitely one that was slowly driving me insane. Sam’s had a pack of 2 lights that are battery operated, LED & motion sensored. I immediately thought of that closet and how my life would soon change. So I brought them home and installed one.


Here it is….and it is awesome!  I find I don’t even turn on the over head light anymore because it is so bright. Also, I can’t begin to tell you how many times I left the light on in the closet because I simply forgot to turn it off. Not anymore! It comes on when I open the door and turns off when I am done. I love it! I want to marry it! Hallelujah!

Then, I realized that I had one more light in the pack. I started mentally thinking about all the dark, irritating places that I could lighten up and the one that takes the cake is my kitchen cabinet that I keep all my pots and pans in. It’s a deep cabinet that is so hard to see in that I find I don’t utilize all the space it has.  So I did this…


It rocks!! You can’t tell, but the cabinet goes back to the left quit a ways. This light was the answer to my prayers. I open the cabinet and it comes on immediately and now I can see the things way in the back, like that lid I had been looking for since 1942. I love these lights and if you need a place lit, they are awesome. Also, because they are LED, the battery life is awesome. I’ve had mine for a few months and I have yet to change the batteries.

Sam’s Club did not pay me to say this, they have no idea who I am, I am just a big fan of these lights man!!

Get some. Your life will change. Amen.


Happy Thursday.
