Ahma’s living room before and after

This morning I went over to help my mom unpack. My poor mom has been in a state of paralysis as she did major downsizing and has been making slow progress unpacking — it is hard to make decisions when it’s just you!

So I went over to help out. Here’s the before picture. (I actually remembered to take one!)

I spent 2 hours unpacking, sorting, tossing, organizing and assembling shelves. In the end, this is what the living room looked like.

Now to hit the rest of the house another day…

    I have been working daily, almost none-stop, over a month, and I was beginning to think about giving up the last few days. Thanks to the Lord that He touched your heart to come over to help.
    After you left, I opened another box that contained as many large photo albums as the ones you arranged, and I had to rearrange all the photo albums again. That was why it was so hard to get organized.
    Your help really paved the way for me to feel better. I even sat down at the piano and picked up a little bit of practice. My fingers felt so stiff since it has been months I had not played.
    Thank you for helping out.
