Maybe you remember last year about this time when we were fortunate to have some workers from a local agency come and help us with our yard and other hard jobs. Take a look here and see what they did a year ago!
This year we were offered their help again. This is called the Catholic Heart Workshop and we had two adults and 4 high school students who worked together.
This is Danielle!
This is Peter
This is Walker, Bailey , Mary and Alex .Bailey is wearing
a dust mask on her head!
I must apologize for the quality of the pictures! It was great fun having them here and they did so much to improve my world! You know when you get older, its harder to do things and even harder to find people you can pay to do things. But to get this wonderful group at no cost, who THANK you for allowing them to come and help, that is just one of God's special blessings.
Here is what they did to my over grown back yard.
This is what it looked like when they walked into it.
This is what it looked like when they finished!
We now have a lots bigger back yard! Mary loves flowers so she made several flower beds and re-did our big one in front. Next time I will have some more pictures for you of that.
Then they cleaned out our garage, things from three families that just had to go, and now that looks wonderful too. I can plan a garage sale and get rid of some excess furniture. They hauled off all the tree cuttings, and somehow talked the trashman into taking everything including two old televisions, paper, plastics, all that was there. Its all gone and more than wonderful to me.
So my thanks are abundant to Mary and Peter for leading these 4 hard working kids, and they seemed to have fun while they worked. They were amazing. I also need to thank Mahube agency and
Catholic Heart Workshop for all that they did to make things easier for me. Everybody my age should be so lucky!
