Yesterday a friend came by to help with framing our basement. 

Other friends have also helped, and I am learning new things each day.  And for that I am very grateful.

Last night I stood and watched.  I am constantly amazed at those for whom the difficult seems easy.  In three hours he worked a miracle that would have taken me three days.

And as he finished a section of the wall, he merely said, “I think I need a drink.”  And that was the end of work for the evening. 

No great fan fare.  Just – let’s have a drink and chat.
