This blog started as a photo journal of the construction progress of our" little cabin in the woods"
Contractor: Mike Kennedy, Hazel Green, Al. Construction began 12/7/2009
move in date: March 14, 2010
For many years Bob had wanted a "little cabin in the woods"..the construction of his cabin was completed just one month before he died. I deeply regret that he never got to enjoy living here.
a message for my children on this mothers-day eve:
I'm getting older...thank you for having patience with me as I age...
When I repeat myself...thank you for listening anyway..when you were young and wanted something you would sometimes ask over and over
I remember and treasure those memories.
As my body weakens...thank you for not minding that I walk slow,lag behind and slow down your progress... sometimes needing help from my wheelchair or cane... I remember and treasure the memories of when each of you earned to walk!
Thank you for your assistance in doing all the "routine" things that I find hard to do for myself..
I can smile as I remember helping you open a bottle or tie your shoes..
I realize that you understand I'm alone and lonely most of the time and I'm grateful for how much of your precious-little spare time that you give to me.
For those four of you who live far away...thank you for using your time and resources to see me..it's a long way from Hazel Green, Al. to Dallas and Chicago..
Thank you for my precious grand-and great-grand children..they bring me joy..
As I continually grieve over the loss of your father...thank you for understanding ...each of you suffer the loss of him also.
and when the time comes for me to leave you please don't be too sad...I will be reuniting with the love of my life and I will be with our creator..and I will ask Him to watch over and bless each of you..
Nicki is here from Chicago for 10 days...putting her to work...
I moved the swing from the back yard - where no one ever used it - to the front at the end of the driveway...decided I needed something nicer than the gravel around it so Barb got me some small stones...prettier and smoother...
they were almost finished unloading it before I remembered to take some pictures..
