standing together.

yesterday, about 20 people filled our house and painted walls/repaired walls/replaced outlet covers/built shelves/repainted furniture. my house is the white i’ve been dreaming of for years. it is ME.

desserts were dropped off. amazing sandwiches and soups were cooked. drinks were made. money was donated so that people could drive here. money was donated for the project (and i even stayed under budget for our contribution to the work, for once!!!)

i don’t really know what to say. i deeply need people–we all do. i love my friends, new and old. i dedicate this song by ellie holcomb to all of you…thank you for learning the words to this sad song so well. carrying us with love, laughing and crying, wrapping arms around us, not being afraid to walk through our door even on that very first terrible day. i’m forever changed.
