My mother made a special trip out from New Jersey to see the house before it sells.
I must tell you that this is so touching. I know that she has little to no discretionary income. She is not doing this as a frivolous thing.
She and I have had MANY candid conversations over the years regarding the difficulties and discouragements that I have encountered in finishing this house. She has visited several times over the years and seen the house in various stages of incompletion. The fact that she wants to see what I have built even though it will cost her to do so means a great deal to me.
One of the challenging things in life is that we often go through it alone. It is very difficult to find people who really care about what you do. I have at least one.
