home stretch


When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.

~ Helen Keller ~

Off to do the finishing touches on the project. I'm hoping that we will get it all done. I know there will be bits and pieces that can't be finished. I'll go back in a couple days and will do those and help Mom clean the house.

Of course it took four times as long as we had hoped--and it didn't help that I was out of the country for a week in the middle of all that. Fortunately it wasn't four times as expensive--or even twice as expensive as we thought it would be--some more, yes.

I did the best I can. I hope it makes a difference.

Hello Wanda,
un-met friend who sent me a card with swimming turtles and fish on it!

Please accept my apologies for not making contact sooner. I stuck your card inside of a book, to mark my place (a habit of mine, I confess) . . . but then I couldn't find it. And I couldn't remember your blog name.

Well, slow swimming turtle, it finally surfaced again.
Many, many thanks. (sorry they are so late in arriving.)

I know that Mom is grateful and so am I...and time will tell if it makes a difference in her health. However, there's no waiting to know that it made a difference in the house.

Thank you for being such a good and helpful thithter!
