Wow is about all I can say. The saying" ask and ye shall recieve" was shown tonight. On monday on the way to the hospital I knew I would need to take over and finish this house. I was talking to Meghan and we decided to ask for some help, which I figured would be a few cousins and my uncles... how wrong I was. She posted for help on wednesday at about ten am. my phone rang non-stop till nine that night with people wanting to do anything. I was blown away-people called for the next three days. So I am writing here because I have no idea how else I can ever thank you all. The last three days have now come and gone and as I stood back tonight as I walked through the house after everyone had gone home I lost it. As I look back at how many people showed up for whatever time they had, and did every little job I asked no matter how bad, hard, crappy or silly it seemed and no one complained about any of it and no one slowed down till we were finished. You all have no idea how long all this work would have taken me on my own. I sent rob a text before we ate tonight and said this is the neatest thing I have ever seen and he replyed Gammy must be there running the show and how true it is. What a great family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to drop everything they are doing and help us out in this time of need.
Over the last three days we finished the whole hard wood floor, the finish work and tile are just about done, poor rod and steve are getting there on the handrail, paint is just starting, the electricians said we were using more power tonight than it would take to run the entire house. Another thanks to them as they made it so we could see most of the time tonight. We all ate very well and a thanks to all those who made that happen. We will keep moving on and finish this up. If anyone still wants to help feel free to call me and we will see when we can use the help.
So I am not so savy with this whole blog thing but from the bottom of my heart thank you thank you I will never be able to say it enough. Whether you cleaned, layed floor, worked on finish, preped paint, built a handrail, layed tile, made food, watched someones kids or anything else I have missed, I want you all to know you have helped lift a huge weight off Rob and Angel.
Thank you all, Jared
