Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Oh 1889 cherry floors...how I love thee!!
Here are the floors on day one of refinishing. Zach and I could not believe our eyes when we walked into the study last night. The sanding took off years of wear and tear...literally since this room used to be used as the Jex family storage garage back in the day...bikes, lawn mowers, you name it. Yesterday it was sanded and then mopped to bring the grain to the top, and today is was being sanded with a different grit and will be mopped again and then glossed. I cannot wait to see these gorgeous floors that were hiding for all those years. There is only one drawback to having this room refinished...not it makes us want to redo all the wood floors in the house so they are equally as beautiful! Stay tuned for more pics of the finished floor and before shots of the wall painting.
Happy Tuesday y'all!!
