4 weeks after starting, we now have beautiful solid Maple floors on the main level of our house. We decided to put in hardwood floors in order to create a healthier house for our new child that we were expecting a few weeks ago. It turns out that this gift for our child (or so we thought) has instead been a gift for the two of us. It has been a project for me to work on to get my mind off of the heaviness we've experienced. And Beth and I have really enjoyed the change our house has experienced.
We finished the living room the night before we heard the devastating news that we wouldn't be bringing a child home in December. I'm really glad that God allowed us to finish that stage so we could relax for a while.
Here's a picture of the finished floor:
