DIG A LITTLE DEEPER// this saying can mean so much to so many. It can be very literal, it can be contextual but most often it is meant to be personal. We have all had a coach, mentor, parent, friend or training partner tell us to dig a little deeper. Well this was one of those projects for us. We had to dig deep. The project was way behind schedule and we were to originally have 2 months to create this masterpiece for these kids. But as so often happens in construction the project was behind and our window shrunk to 3 weeks to do all the exterior work including the concrete and 2 very large commercial retaining walls.
It was a lot of very long nights working under the lights to meet this deadline. But we did it. And it was easier knowing who we were working for. We had a cause far bigger than us, or another fancy landscape. It was the opportunity to create a space to bring people together to share one more BBQ, one more swing, or one more chat on a park bench before the often inevitable call of deaths door took way to many, way to young. I still drive by from time to time remembering the first families get moved in and I can’t help but say a prayer for them and so many who have followed. I pray that they would find strength to dig a little deeper and I hope that the little bit of work we did may have helped them create one more memory as a family. After all we want to create memories that last a lifetime at VisionScapes and this was a project for the ages for us.
