“The Little Yellow Bench”
Everyone wants to know about our Name
The Story of The Little Yellow Bench is very unique. My wife had passed away and I was left with lots of emotions, Anger and hurt was just of few that I knew that I had to deal with. One day my two sons had a trailer full of rubbish by my house that they were about to be disposed of. I immediately connected to a yellow bench that was amongst the rubbish. I asked if I could have the bench and they commented on how I was becoming a hoarder. They gave it to me and I placed it by my house. There was something special about this bench, it was weathered, few soft spots on the bottom from water, and one leg that if you picked it up would fall off. Yes, you could say it had seen its better days. I began sitting on the bench and talking to God about what was on my heart. The anger came out, the hurt, the why’s …..I begin sitting on the bench daily and decided I needed to move it to a special place in the yard. I placed the bench between two cypress trees in front of the water. This became the medicine I needed to renew my spirit with God and began to heal.
After several months I begin seeing special women in my life. I knew the Yellow Bench would be an important part of our relationship and we began meeting on the bench. We both had a past of hurts and unanswered questions that we would need to resolve. Meeting God at the bench was an important part of our relationship. Seven months later I would propose to my wife on that same yellow bench and marry her just a few yards away. I retired and knew God still had plans for our new life together. We decided to work together on our own business. I was trying to figure out what to name our business, my wife setting on the yellow bench patted the bench and said, How about, “The Little Yellow Bench Company”.
I finally figured out what God was trying to tell me, like the little yellow bench “It doesn’t matter how beat up you are, or what you have been through, I still have a purpose for you.”
This Bench represents taking time, renew and refresh with your loved one. You both can grow closer to each other and to God. We encourage you to place this bench in a place that will give you a getaway from life and focus on what really matters. We would love to hear from each of you on where you placed your Little Yellow Bench. Each English Style Yellow Bench is handmade using all natural wood that will withstand outdoor elements or can be used indoors. Contact us if you’d like to have your own ‘Little Yellow Bench’
