Bird's Eye View

I used to work underneath this roof every day last summer, and for the months of February and March. I have since been moved into the office; I'm still coming to grips with the transition. However, today I got to ride the forks of our fork lift up to the roof of our tool shed--the roof that has hardly been touched since the storm. In many ways so much has changed; so much has been done, but then there's this reminder that it's not finished yet. Every morning after a rain, when we empty water out of wheel-barrows and remove protective tarps, we are reminded that there are HUGE holes in our roof. It was strange to stand up so high above our complex and look down through holes I have only ever looked UP through... I thought I'd share the bird's eye view from the day; you probably won't feel the same thrill I felt riding all the way up on our lift and climbing out onto the roof...but try. To those who think there is nothing left to do, I offer this as proof to the contrary. For those who know there is much left to do...come back.

i feel like i've put my heart out on the line for that roof many a time & there's just nothing left to give.

well you should believe because when I get down there in 11 days and see the roof fixed- I'll believe- or I'll do it myself :).
