16 days....A picture would be so much better...

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.
