Don’t you just love majestic trees? A Davidson House update

Don’t you just love big majestic trees? it’s our only one !

This view of our yard (see house on the left) will soon be overtaken by every machine possible..

We signed the paperwork to begin the LAST of our repairs and renovations - AND finally a proper living room for our family!

As you know we have been living in an 8 foot wide living room since we moved here. With 7 of us and my mom in a wheelchair and three special needs let’s just say it was a HIGH cause of our stress most days. (Aka meltdowns !)

"No I was sitting there" "no that's MY seat" "get off my seat" yes just some of the things I would hear daily in a room without enough seats to sit us all! In fact I'm sitting in my kitchen writing this, cause there are no room for me in there now. Lol

I can’t tell you how excited I am (and SCARED !) to see this done (we've only waited three full YEARS, only to get sidetracked with our mold remediation!) and we need your help!

First Pray please!!!! Your prayers alone has got us so far... this is the last stretch and don't fail us now.

2019 Repairs and renovations needed include:

  • 4 more windows to be removed under mold remediation started Friday.
  • Basement vacuum and clean for mold remediation.
  • Hall closet to be torn out to clean all the mold there under containment

Then Monday begins;

  • New furnace - ours is not compatuble with the new duct work needed for removing the moisture out of our home and ensuring no more mold regrowth.
  • New hot water tank- when the furnace is changed the venting is no longer compatible. Plus when we had our gas scare (for my Facebook followers who prayed for us we thank you!) we discovered the top of our tank was melted (YIKES!) so we feel this is about time!
  • Re-grading around the house - this means tearing up our laneway and patio stones around the house and reforming the land so water is directed away from the house and prevent moisture build up in the house again.
  • New HRV Heat Exchange recovery system and new duct work to ensure proper air flow in the house and again no moisture for mold regrowth.
  • Lastly, our New living room - finally a home large enough with NO MOLD!
  • Total cost $74,685.50
  • Please pray for us (while I go faint haha ) somebody wake me up when it’s all over

Remember Eggs for supper ?

Happy Saturday my friends... it’s eggs for lunch here... I remember growing up having eggs for Friday supper do you?

But dipping sunny side up eggs it hit me today... reminding me of a precious memory of my mom making me my favorite eggs.

She used to tease me anytime she made some perfect sunny side up eggs because she knew I would be the first to dip and steal her yolks.

She never complained noooo she would just laugh as I ate most of her plate and left her some mangled whites. Even as I got older she would entice me (now and again) and I would indulge. I think deep down she just loved me so much, there was no greediness in her, just a heart full of love for me.

Fast forward to how I am now her caretaker this is something I miss, those precious moments....something that makes the transition so bittersweet.

The path is always the same, your born, your a teen, you get married have a family then watch your children grow and leave (sometimes forever !) and eventually take care of your own parents. You're just switching places. The circle of life they call it. I call it a mother's martyrdom.

Some days are awfully hard... so it’s good to keep looking up and not getting stuck in the day to day details...

The world keeps moving and time stands still for no one. We are but players on a stage waiting our turn and then the end of the play arrives. Will we succeed in making our final hurrah in our play? Our final entrance into heaven ? It’s a beautiful, bittersweet story this thing called LIFE. Let’s not waste a moment.

It's been a unbelievable lent for us... just one cross after another... how is your lent going?

With love
