Well, much to my amazement, yesterday when I went to my house to see if the guy ever showed up....he had shown up alright! I had not heard anything from him all day and I really felt like he had blown me off again...boy, was I wrong!! He not only had my water line ran, but had the water office already out there to inspect and had the meter put in the box, the water on AND my septic tank put in!!! WOW!! I guess it pays to get a little crappy on the phone, in a nice voice of course! I was so dreading having to start over, to find someone new to do all of that. Now, we have another issue with C & L. They never could find the man who owns the land across the road, so they came up with another plan and had stakes in the yard where they were going to put the poles and what not. They were planning on coming soon to do that. Well, the water guy removed some of the stakes and put the septic tank fill lines where they were sitting. I called and reported it, we'll see how that goes now. Pray for us!
This is completely off the above subject, but a friend gave me a copy of this quote yesterday as I am having a hard time finding a church around here that I want to go to and had a bad experience at a particular church after my sister in law passed away...I thought I would share because it is so true:
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway." ~ Mother Teresa
