NEXT Project!

So I was asked to take a small break by my husband. Fair enough!! Starting April 1st I would like to do another project but I'm not sure what? Do you have any suggestions? Be sure to message me if you have any ideas. Until then I'll be brain storming with my team and talking to Mariah. Maybe she'll guide me in the right direction.

The Library

The library is up!

Thank you to all those who donated books! The library would not exists had it not been for all those who donated all them amazing books. Thank you to my amazing group of volunteers. All the donated baked treats gave us the funding to buy the shelves. THANK YOU to the Pigeon Coop and the home group meetings on Thursday @ 8pm and Saturday @ 7:30pm for allowing me to set up camp and sell all those baked goods so we could buy the materials needed for this project. In times of great despair so many benevolent hearts came forward and gave little pieces of themselves which made this library have meaning to those woman at Crossroads who are still fighting for sobriety. It said to them YOU matter and it said to this world... those who struggle matter... and we value life and WE value who Mariah was and the roll she had in this world. 

Monday was a day filled with so many emotions. There was laughing and there where tears. As it came to an end we each grabbed a balloon and wrote her a little message. I sat there and watched everyone let go of their balloon... then I let go of mine and this overwhelming feeling of peace came over me. As I looked around everyone was hugging each other watching the balloons drift away into the sky. The girls at Crossroad sang Happy Birthday to her and it was beautiful. It gave me chills!! As we left that evening the girls at Crossroad gave us so much love!! They kept hugging us and thanking us for doing this for them. It was healing for my soul to see their joy and appreciation. One girl said to me... "I can't believe your doing this, it feels so good to know people like you actually care wow thank you". I couldn't help but think to myself how Mariah would have loved this. She was all about things like this not to mention she would have LOVED this library.

Thank you God for giving us this gift and allowing us to do your will.

Painting DONE, 2000 BOOKS categorized DONE!

"He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him." 

[Psalm 126:6]

Books categorized DONE!
It took a team to do this but we got it done. Thanks to all of you  over 2000 books were donated. Each and every book was handle with care and categorized. We were lucky enough to have a former Borders Book librarian.

Prep and paint DONE! 
These three carefully painted the walls and corner until it looked just right. I'm loving this color of purple. It brightened up the room.
It's a happy color of purple don't you think?

This Saturday we build! Sunday we stock the shelves! Monday... we open and hopefully bring joy to all those woman at Crossroads Flower.

It's all for you Mariah!!
