But I didn't take one.
I came home from work today to find my dear friend Kathy in my front lawn, in a lawn chair, with a paint brush... and all the tree branches for the wedding that needed to be painted. I didn't tell her...but she had paint all over her face and legs and it was quite cute.
I love that woman. I merely mentioned that we had some branches to paint and would she help... I told her I'd give her a call this weekend... and the next thing I knew, she was here. She came here at 10:00 in the morning... I was at work and the girls were home. They fed the woman on the lawn a sandwich for lunch and gave her some water... Emily and her friend drew sidewalk chalk pictures around her....at one point, Abbie gave her a spray nozzle to help her out... I came home at 4:00pm then left to go to Walmart for some more paint. I painted with her until nearly 8:00 at night. She was here for 10 hours. Painting.
Kathy, whatever it is I did to earn a friend like you, I don't know. But, I do know that you are an amazing woman always willing to share your time and energy for others. You are a blessing to not only me, but so many. Thank you for sitting in my yard all day. It was fun. You amaze me.
Like I said... I wish I had a picture.
