they are always there to make me laugh!
Last week was.....trying....to say the least. I woke up every morning, after a long night with little sleep, every limb in pain from the stress. This renovation is big lesson in mankind. It is amazing to see how many people will just work against us rather than with us. And sometimes just for the sake of... Of what actually? I would not even be able to tell you. I guess some people need the drama, the fighting, the confrontation to feel powerful and alive? Not sure. Our relationship with our architects (well the wife part of the team) hit a bottom low. I hope to have seen the worse of it. There were days last week when I would have sold the house at the first chance. Then again there were days when I received emails and other messages from people being just so nice and normal, days where I heard the husband of a friend had an heart attack and is lying in hospital.... Watching the series of pictures I made of my 3 kids, pulled me back up and filled my heart with lots of blessings.
But today, Maxim sent me an email that touched me deep inside he would never even imagine. Not for a long time anyway. It hit me so hard that I started to cry and could not stop for 2 minutes long. As a joke, he wrote an mail, as written by the architect. It was so true it took me a few seconds to realize what was happening, and it was so sad that he, at 9 years of age, had to carry my building worries on his shoulders. That he was so grown up about it. And me, the adult, had not been able to shelter him from all these problems.
To a very special kid.....
