Building a Home

I awoke this morning to the hammerings and thumpings of the guys putting a new roof on our house. It is fall, and they're trying to get us all weathered in before the rains come. So far we've been blessed with excellent weather, but we know that it is about to change. A simple siding project turned into a huge re-building project because so many of our structural beams were rotten. This was discovered after the THREE layers of siding were pulled from the house. The whole process of putting our house back together has given me pause for reflection: Somehow, during the turn of this season, everything feels fresh and new. I am excited to get up in the morning and get started on pushing my own boundaries and being a strong woman.
