The Hidden Drawer

On another occasion I was asked to refinish a cedar chest. It was not a great piece of furniture and needed a lot of work. In the process of repairing the underside, I found a hidden drawer. In the drawer was an old corn cob doll, some trinkets, and a wedding ring. My wife put them in a bag and when we returned the chest we showed the hidden drawer and the contents we found to the owner. The lady was tearful and ecstatic! As it turned out her mother had Alzheimer’s and hid things. When she went home to be with the Lord, her children searched for her rings and could never find them. They never knew about the hidden drawer.
