Contributions I'm Grateful For Right Now!
One of the gratitude cards I made that went missing; me and my new air compressor by the fire!
This is a long overdue post, I haven't asked if I can name names, so this is just a few things off the top of my head, here goes;
a really great place to live
temporary storage space
permission to take parts off of a truck similar to mine
music night, a great meal and dessert with old friends, and a very special piano
a new wool scarf, with a new toque to follow
lunch and a visit
a ride to the swap meet so I could find some tools I've been looking for
a ride home, pickled green tomatoes, advice on quoting, a letter of reference, and help with moving
a friendly conversation, a push to get geared up, check-ins to make sure I had what was needed
donation & delivery of a great Ingersoll-Rand 5HP compressor, magnetic chuck, trolleys
advice on good truck routes
advice on fixing the heater
help checking the heater cables and heater core in a truck that would have been cold for 18 hours
visiting family and friends
a specially cooked family dinner
crossing paths with people I've met in the past that I would like to know better
help with finding a scale to weigh the truck
weighing the truck
patience in storing things in Ontario, generosity in being flexible with rent payment terms, warnings from years of life experience
an archive of my early years
help loading and packing the truck on my latest trip to New Brunswick
snacks for the drive home
friends and family checking in a long the way
a friendly hitchhiker from NewZealand **more appreciative of the heater than I was!
being paid in compliments
learning some general construction skills
fresh local organic food to eat
walking and talking
bookkeeping help - this was actually a while ago, but it's taken a load off my mind!
grace on the things I'm neglecting to put in this list!
