Itโ€™s #givingtuesday and guess what?

GOODMORNING my friends!!

Itโ€™s #givingtuesday and did you know we still need to raise funds for our house repair after our ๐Ÿ”ฅ fire?

Gofundme has not been making this easy when they took down our page to update their payment processing and removed our history . Now when the page is shared the wrong link goes out so no one can find our page to donate. I'm thinking we will need to change our fundraising page, but seriously if we could just raise what we need I could close this page for good!

I know there are so many causes and we've been asking for so long... please understand our need is real as so many others are.

so here is a direct link I pray works? ๐Ÿ™ and our update from yesterday is below.

please donate and help us complete this work! Thank you my friends for sharing to friends and family !

God bless you

God never disappoints

Well when life disappoints God never does! ๐Ÿ˜… here is our small garden harvest.. after a busy summer of not even LOOKING at the garden.

๐Ÿคช But LOOK at this colorful bounty. ๐Ÿ˜… Pumpkins, Onions, chives, rosemary, thyme and if you look really close... two baby watermelons ๐Ÿ‰ !!!

We had thought they all died or overtaken by pumpkins when we couldnโ€™t even see any sign of them, but what a JOY to see them today ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜….

Almost like God wanted to give us a little surprise. To remind us that with God ALL things ARE possible! ๐Ÿ˜‡

When we have lost all hope anywhere God is really preparing something for you behind the scenes to surprise you with later like this baby watermelon! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ˜‡ so never give up on HIM! ๐Ÿ™

Now who wants to see whatโ€™s inside those baby watermelons?! Are they edible ? Yes or No? Take a guess ! ๐Ÿ˜…

I'll take a draw for every right guess posted below and send you a little surprise!!! So take a chance on God today! I'll be opening up this baby watermelon ๐Ÿ‰ live on my Facebook page HERE to discover what's inside and if it's edible!!?

ENJOY ๐Ÿ˜…

With much love,

Rita Xxo ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜…

Davidson Family Trust update #101 haha ๐Ÿคฃ

Hello my friends!

Well life has been a whirlwind since our mold renovations began in July. From my mother landing in the hospital and losing her ability to walk because of her arthritis, that brought on a slew of stress dealing with her increased nursing care and services. We are finally over the worst and she is happily getting the care she needs here at home with us. ๐Ÿ’—Thank God.๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™

I've been playing with a new way to write you and I am enjoying the new process YAY!!!! Are you? I've so missed writing you all ๐Ÿ˜… โœ๐Ÿป let me know how you like this?

While we dealt with my moms nursing care we were having the mold removed room by room starting with bedrooms (that got us sleeping in the living room the WHOLE pile of us!) and finally our kitchen was torn out. Since the kitchen was built-in (gotta love custom made! ๐Ÿ˜‰) they had no choice but to break it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ So that left us without a kitchen for 6 + weeks or more.

In the process of this work they removed the mold under containment with rooms sealed, so we could not sleep on our bedrooms. You would not believe how sore all my bones were once they began! Whether it was some of the mold escaping I don't know but the first few days where really hard on my body. I'm so thankful we got it done!

In our kitchen wall opposite to our sink the wall was removed and they found a un-insulated furnace pipe in the wall and rot! ๐Ÿ˜ฎThey discovered it was leaking into the wall from outside rotting the wood and adding mold to the house. So they cleaned and repaired that wall, sealed up the leaks and insulated the pipe before it got closed up. This was a reason how thankful we were to have gotten this done! How could we have ever know this was there? This is what added to our cost as well.

We learned a lot we didn't know about water and our house so next we have to re-grade our laneway to shed water away from the house.

They discovered our water is filtering into our basement and adding to our humidity inside!๐Ÿ˜ข So we are waiting for excavating to be done and eavestrophing to get water away from the foundation.

Waiting....

Boy I have learned more waiting in all this. Making phone calls, leaving messages for contractors, not hearing back and waiting....calling again. Months have passed by. I can't tell you how frazzled I have been lately!

I've made a temporary office in my moms room when she's up in her wheelchair daily to make calls from.

So in all this we've been living without a kitchen, washing dishes in the laundry room. In desperation last week I began a Novena to St Therese. I know God often waits for us to be desperate to start answering us... I should have known. ๐Ÿ™„ On the second day of the Novena I found our kitchen from a girl named "Rose" of course! ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

This weekend was our Thanksgiving weekend and I was determined to put on a meal without a kitchen!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Turkey and Apple Betty (you can find the recipe here on my blog) and all the fixings! ๐Ÿ˜…I was exhausted and impressed! ๐Ÿคช I made it all without a proper kitchen. Haha ๐Ÿคฃ I can do anything now! ๐Ÿ˜…

Later that same day, while the turkey was cooking๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ, our kitchen was picked up...

It took five HOURS for us to unload it and find where to store it. So my house is still a mess.

Haha ๐Ÿคฃ

And wait til you hear about my St Joseph Novena.... well that's a story for next time....

PLEASE help us with this work by donating to our Trust Fund www.gofundme.com/davidsonfamilytrust

Can't wait to show you our progress! ๐Ÿ˜…

With much love,

Rita Xxo ๐Ÿ’—
