On Thursday night I got a call from Craig. I was in Lacrosse in the hospital with Kramer. He said, “Hey the firemen got done with their stuff at the fire station and we decided to come to your house and do some work. How wide do you want the landscaping around the fence by the garage?”
What?? How cool. Then he went on to explain that the house siding that had hail damage had been replaced.
He said the that trees in front of the house were being trimmed.
Right now the trees hang a little low for vehicles passing by our house. They needed to be trimmed and I worried how I was going to get that done. No worries now.
I told Craig what I had in mind for the landscape and plants along the fence.
Then I said, “Craig, one more thing…can you snap some pictures so I can blog about it?’ Craig said, “Already on it”. Oh I love that guy.
By the time we were done talking, I had tears. The help we’ve been getting is totally overwhelming. We so appreciate it.
Little did I know they tilled the garden….
Little did I know that this was all done while Craig had Carver and Gannon in toe too.
I’m guessing Mel, one of the fireman’s gals, came and helped with the boys as Kalissa was working the overnight.
I went back up to Kramer’s room and told him. He laughed. He said, “You know, with the timing of this, I doubt that they did anything a the fire station. I think they only went to our house.” I believe it.
I totally believe it.
The firemen in our town are seriously the best.
They have asked and offered to do a benefit for us. We’ve put it off. Doing this was PERFECT. We couldn’t be more impressed with them. You hear all sorts of things like “Firemen are a band of brothers”. These guys have proved that!!
There are young people who flock to the city for jobs….I think that at times they miss out on the “community” of living in a small town. This is priceless…it truly is. We are so blessed to have these people in our lives. We can’t thank them enough!!
