Blessings over the weekend

Shawn and I traveled up to Placerville again this weekend to get some work done. Not only were our renters gone all weekend - blessings for a quite house - but something else really cool happened. We were at Sherwin Williams on Sunday to purchase paint for the exterior of the house. While we were talking to the gentleman at the counter asking about the horrible state our house is in a contractor walked in. After talking to the contractor for a bit about the house, he offered to come by the house and take a look and let us know what he thought. The guy, named Rick, came by as promised and told us what we needed to do, step by step in order to make the house look really good. Nothing like this would ever happen in the Bay Area. A perfect stranger went out of his way to help us figure out what we need to do to make our house look good and have a paint job that will last years. It am constantly amazed at the people in Placerville - mostly good stuff!!! People in Placerville are so much nicer than the people in the Bay Area. In addition to that, they will go out of their way to help you. Don't get me wrong, there are nasty drivers like there are everywhere, but for the most part people are very cordial and helpful. It's such a different experience. I love it. Many blessings have come our way!!!
