She gave her whole weekend plus

This morning I put together the list of everything needing done at Don's in order to get him moved back home by October 10th.

By the end of the day I was able to remove 2 of the items.

Rich worked on Friday and Saturday in the master bedroom and has wall insulation in with most of the sheetrock.  He texted me very early this morning saying he would be returning this week to finish with the ceiling insulation and sheetrock.  He's determined to get it done.  I love that kind of dedication!

Shelley gave her entire weekend, her 3 days off work -- to tackle the painting of the dining room.  And she also remained dedicated and got the job done!  It wasn't easy as the trim around the top is a bear not to mention the trim at the bottom!  She did a wonderful job and this afternoon I stopped by and was thrilled to see the outcome!  Don did a good job in picking out his own color (most men refuse to do so) and I know he will be thrilled when he sees it.  Many thanks to Shelley for spending all 3 of her days "off" working harder than if she had been at work!!!!!!!  Don't you wish you had a neighbor like her?!

My morning got a bit de-railed with a dead battery in my truck that left me stranded in the parking lot but just one call to Monty and he had me back home so I could take his truck.  I was on my way to paint the treehouse for our grandkids and even though I got a later start than planned I did get it done.  It looks great and is now ready for the cedar trim that we can hopefully get done this Sunday afternoon.  Luke relayed his thanks via the phone this evening as he was on his way to his gymnastics class.  He was excited because he said at last week's class he "got a muscle" so his mom and I both hope he gets another one this week to help balance him out!!!!!     :)

Monday with it's more than usual last minute change of schedules and yet so much accomplished!  A great day with sunshine, cool temps and the best volunteers!  Thank you Lord!

And at the end of the day --- we learn our dearest friends --- the family with 10 kids --- are expecting baby number 11 ---- praise the Lord!  Please cover this family in your prayers!  God knows a great set of parents when He sees them and we are so excited that He has chosen to add to their blessings!  The entire family is beyond thrilled and we join in their joy!!!!

Until next time . . . God is oh so good --- and still doing miracles daily!        Susan and Monty
