Extreme

One of my favorite shows is Extreme Makeover: Home edition. I like it because there's no violence, language, or inappropriate content. I also like the fact that it shows how community pulls together to help a family in need. (That sounds like a commercial, doesn't it?) Well, last night's episode took place in the city where we live. (Not so very far from our house actually.) We watched some of the goings on while abc was here filming and it was all very exciting. We've driven by the house and marveled at the beauty of it and were amazed that they were able to pull it all off. (Narrow road, other houses and so forth.) Nothing, however, compared with watching the show last night. Even though the house was beautiful and the family vacation was outstanding, nothing could compare with Patrick Henry Hughes. I honestly thought this was the most inspirational episode of the series. If you get the chance, check this article out and see what I mean. And maybe the next time I see someone who doesn't quite measure up to my way of thinking, I'll try to see things Patrick's way.

Wasn't it wonderful? I was so touched by their family. The final scene where he was playing the piano was incredible.

Thanks for posting about it!!
