Some good news!

Turns out that whatever was causing Tim's mother to have the intestinal blockage cleared on it own just before she was to have surgery - so she's NOT having the surgery and was actually up and walking around a bit yesterday instead! Thank you, GOD!!!

Tim, my brother Steve, and Ben spent most of the day working on our new back porch/mini-deck. Tim tore off all the old wooden sheathing that had been built around the concrete steps which had seen better days. It feel so good to see all that awful old wood with the peeling varnish lying in the driveway waiting to be hauled away. The deck is almost done - the railing needs to be completed and then we'll stain it. I'm thrilled with how it's turned out and with how quickly the guys got it done! it's about 8' x 7' and big enough for a couple of chairs, even 3 if you want to get cosy. I'm sure it will be a favourite spot for us to unwind in the evenings!

Thank you, Steve, for giving up your Saturday to help build our deck, (and for letting Ben "help!)

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
