‘Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.’- Saadi
Santé broke ground in July 2011, and with that the long awaited expansion process finally began to become a reality. As our beautiful campus slowly loses trees, and gains construction workers and debris, it is still hard to be anything but hopeful and excited for our future here in Argyle, TX. The new additions are going to add so much to our campus! It is going to be truly beautiful. The first day was probably the hardest, yet somehow, in true Santé fashion, we made the best of the situation. Staff watched as the crew cut down all of the trees in and around the lower parking lot and IOP building. Later that afternoon, one of our neighbors drove over in his big, bobcat, tree-carrier contraption. He took all of the trees back to his home where he chopped them up and donated the wood to a different families who are in need; they will use it to heat their homes in the colder months (though, right now it seems those may never come). Those that attend the Alumni Retreat this year in October will get to witness the growth and expansion of Santé as we will be knee-deep in the project. They will also get to see the building plans to get an idea of what the finished project will look like! Although the process may cause some slight inconveniences to our community and staff, it is easy to see the good that will come. As we all know, most good things do not come easy.
