"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be." John Wooden

Today we had five home repair sites going on, close to a record I think. We continued work on three from the previous day, went back to Lilydale to work on finishing the roof we started last week when the weather was better, and added a fifth, but familiar site. For those of you who were here last summer you undoubtedly worked if not heard stories working at the two houses that were flooded side by side in Hanover. Well today we went back up there to help to attach a ramp to one of the houses. More than the work that was down up there, the part that was most exciting was for volunteers to see there finished product as well as to visit and catch up.

We had a special treat for dinner as we had homemade calzones with such a variety of vegetables and meats. I think the round of applause and whistles when the cooks came out said it all. There were many happy, full and content PVs after the meal.

The Martha and Mary story were the focus of tonight's reflection as we were asked to share a time when the Martha and Mary in each of us were conflicted. The Martha/Mary story is such a perfect example of how we try to be as PVs.
