"The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all." Leo Rosten

Another week draws to a close, my how time flies... Today we sent a large group to The Way and they were able to do quite a lot of work. The firewall is finished framing and partway covered with drywall, enough tiling has been done so that the plumber coming in this weekend can do what he needs to do. The place is really coming together.

Another group went to the MOC to meet up with UGWA. From there they headed out to the river for some bug collecting. The health of the stream is able to be monitored by the number of bugs collected and the different species that are living in and around the water. A very productive and informative day.

We also sent another crew back to St. Vincent DePaul for a final day of distribution from the warehouse. At one point part of the group went down to the house in Pineville to mow and to do a bit of pruning. The place looks fabulous.

In the afternoon while some PVs went for a few visits, others gathered at Mullens Manor for a great game of Banana Bingo and afterward they painted quite a few nails.

We had yet another scrumptious meal tonight, cranberry chicken and rice, and the veggie dish wash beans and rice. Very good indeed!

After eating and cleaning up we headed into the relfection area for the final reflection for the week. Tonight we reflected on love and were asked to share the good ole' new and good. It was great to hear about everyone's week.

Sadly as the week draws to an end we must say goodbye to 14 members of our community in the morning. They will be missed!
