Yesterday morning I received a very special text message from Trinity.  A special series of messages actually.  The first one said simply "Nanny says Happy Anniversary, and this is your gift..."

I was pretty confused, mainly because not only were we definitely not expecting a gift, it is also very rare for my Nanny to send news in a text message!

I moved on to the next message, which happened to be a picture.  I was a little confused at first, trying to figure out what exactly I was seeing, but as the reality of their gift settled in, tears sprang to my eyes.  Here is the picture (Nanny on the left, and my Uncle Sam on the right)...
Figure it out yet?  You guys...they removed the tree.  You know, THE TREE?  The enormous one that fell on our old house in the middle of that storm?   

There is still the damage to the house to figure out, among other things, but this is such an amazing help to us. 

We are so blessed by this amazing family that God has placed us in, and we are so grateful for this amazing gift that Sam, Trinity, and Nanny gave us. 

An anniversary gift like none other, huh?
