I have been blessed so much in my life by others and it was time to give back. I have raised 3 beautiful girls as a single mom most of their life. I have done Hair and Nails for 26 years, and then I went to college at the age of 40 after the girls were grown. Became an EMT, worked on an ambulance for two years, then went on to live my childhood dream as a flight attendant. In the last 6 months I have become a carpenter. I can't even believe I am doing this now and have never been happier in my life, except for being in the air.
I was honored to be able to donate a 9 1/2 ft Farm Table and bench, 2 matching coffee tables and 2 end tables, to an all girls christian mentored home for them to help aid in their struggle with drugs and alcohol. This hits very close to home for me, my oldest daughter was saved by this wonderful Ministry. Her struggle almost killed her a year ago and I was so blessed by this ministry I took on this huge project without a second thought of all of the hard work that I was in for or the cost of all the wood this was going to take. I went to my local HOME DEPOT store that is always so helpful with all of my needs, and asked them to donate all the wood for this project. It was a God thing when Kyle the ASM said yes sure without a second thought himself.
This whole project has touched so many, and will help so many girls for many years to come. Hoping they have a blessed new start to a new home and new year!
My wife has always wanted a place to organize mail, pay bills and shop on-line. After putting up with a folding tray for way too long, we decided she needed a kitchen command center. Having several organized components packs a lot into a little space, an unused corner of our kitchen.
The key items we wanted were:
A compact and organized work station
A wall mounted computer monitor (the CPU sits on the floor)
Pencil and pen holders (they hang on a french cleat and are removable)
A mail / bill sorter
A wall cubby providing extra storage
I've had my old baby bed laying around for quite awhile. My kids have all grown out of it, and I wanted it to get some use so I turned it into a bench and give it to my parents. They absolutely loved it. I enjoyed the project very much, but in hindsight, I would have done a couple of things differently, but was pleased with the final product.
