Here is a picture of Crabby Appleton right before the storm - in fact, I got rained on before i got back inside. How fast she managed those blooms. I'm impressed. I remember last summer when she looked like a brown, twisted stick, sitting in the middle of a hot parking lot with no water and no shade - isn't it amazing what God can do?
I mentioned this documentary yesterday.
You can visit a non-flash page about it by clicking the picture, if you want.
I've read and heard plenty of stories about times when women have changed the course of events - which always inspires me. This story is from "our time" -
and the film captures the people, the actual people -
history books can't do that for us,
give us a real portrait of the people,
times and how heroic the effort was
(OR How challenging the times were.)
