Our work with the contractor went as contracting work often does. Every small project uncovered a larger need and estimates of an hour took days. We had just hit a wall of frustration from discovering that the sky light installation wasn't as simple a matter as we had been told, when our neighbor shouted out,
- Your house is looking beautiful!
We thought so, too, but it sure helped to hear someone else say so.
You never know when a kind word is just exactly what someone needs to hear.
