Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

August 27th, 2010

Director of Physical Plant

“Time flies when you’re having fun,” is a saying that has come true in our lives.  We started working for the Mansion in August of 2009 and it is now August of 2010. It seems that just yesterday we were unloading furniture and getting settled in…hard to believe that a year could go by so quickly.

I was hired as Director of Physical Plant. I am thankful for the men that help me in maintenance, whether we are mowing grass or repairing buildings.

Our view is that we are not working; we are ministering to the children of TCM by keeping things beautiful, clean, and safe for them.

Most of the staff members are given nicknames by the children. Ours is Grandpa and Grandma Shepherd.  Hopefully we are doing just that, helping to shepherd these precious kids, and we sure are having fun doing it.

    I read all this and enjoyed it. I do pray for all there. We visited the Mansion in the 90’s we enjoyed the trip. I hope some day to do that again. Christian love to all. Ida B.
