The internet is full of rants. Help tip the balance: today, simply be thankful for something (or someone).
There are so many people who have contributed to the making of this House. Our families with love and financial backing, our friends who understand when we say ‘we can’t’ due to a check in or breakfast service, our vendors and builders who supported our vision and dream.
We have recently hired a wonderful cleaner who comes once a week for a few hours to help us out. Our sweet friend Melody kept ‘gifting’ us her service after we hosted events. Wendy would show up, saying ‘Melody sent me, she said you might need help this morning.” I am a proud person who doesn’t like to ask for help, even when drowning, but our dear friend knows that, knows us and knows what we need. Now Wendy comes and just takes care of what needs to be done. She jumps right in, never checks her watch, and always spends more time than she’s hired to, to put this House in order.
I cannot tell you how much this bit of help truly means to me. It gives me a bit of breathing room in the midst of some long weeks and is amazing to have someone taking such good care of us.
Friends that step in and don’t just ask what you need, but find a way to take care you and do something to take away your burden are very rare, but oh, so very wonderful! Thanks my friend!
