Here is the front of the house...Kirby Stone looking good!
Here is a close up of some of the work in progress.Assembly line of volunteers passing stone from the pallet to the platform for the guys to chop it and place it on the house.More assembly line...so many wonderful folks volunteering for the cause.Ty!!! We did get to see him in action filming a segment of the show...he's a little dude!And here is what they saw when they moved the bus! Such a gorgeous end to a wonderful week of people helping people! My favorite part about being there was just watching how happy and willing everyone was to be there working in the 100+ degree Texas heat. And one of the homebuilder's main guys took Doug, Bo, and Chris around to see the layout and where all of the stone would be going. He told them that one of the things that Mr. Marshall said(the man whose family they were building the house for) was that he didn't want anyone to feel sorry for him for being disabled. He just wanted to be able to help his wife in the kitchen and put his children to bed at night. HELLO! Tears in my eyes just hearing that and again as I type this. Let's take more time to think about those simple things that most of us take for granted. Slow down, breathe, take more time to help those around you who can't help themselves. Spend time with your loved ones, TELL them you love them, and PRAISE GOD daily for blessing us with all of the wonderful gifts He has given us. And then share those gifts...Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.
