He comes home from work. In the few minutes we have before dinner is on the table, he's out there with the stone and the saw, making just. one. more. cut.
His determination is what has seen us through on so many projects.
He simply never gives up.
Tonight, that means the top stone on the left side and the piece at the top left of the oven door.
In a much bigger sense, it's what holds us together.
Steady, unchanging, dependable.
Doing the next right thing. Every time.
