We don't have to wait, we were blessed all weekend. The weather was supposed to have rained (but you could check it on the hour and the chance of that diminished each time), all the help that came out from the church, all the brothers that came out, heck even one nearby resident that helped keep us up all night with his near constant chatter.

I've been going through a rough stretch for the last couple of months. Between Ramona's parents, my mother, work, the tree, and the flood. It was just what I needed to take my thoughts away from my immediate circle and let me stretch out to another to remind me just how truly blessed I am.

Again, I thank everyone that came out, or didn't but, supported this wonderful event.

Did we make a difference? The following conversation happened around 5:00 Saturday evening:

"How you doing? It's a great evening isn't it?"

"Yea, not bad."

"Ya know, we've got some hotdog's made up, you hungry?"

Him after we gave him a couple of dogs and chips:
"I was going to hit you all up for money, but this means more than you know. I haven't eaten all day. a couple of bucks wouldn't have gotten me all this. Where you all from?"

"I'm from the north side of Chicago, Clark is from Wisconsin, Bubba is from Michigan, Bob is from Pennsylvania, and the rest are from Ohio. How about you stop by tomorrow, we'll have sandwiches and more"

"All that way just to cook for us? Dang!"

"We just want you to know that there are people out there that care."

"Thank you man, thank you and bless you."

So you can see, we were blessed within hours of arriving.
