"Work is love made visible." Kahlil Gibran
Overnight the rains came in and pretty much settle over Wyoming County for the day. Knowing this was possibly the case, we had made a "plan b" for today. Usually on Fridays we don't do home repair and focus on the agencies in the area. Because of the weather we switched Thursday and Friday around and spent today working with agencies. A couple of volunteers spent the day at the Itmann Food Bank sorting toiletries and folding clothes that were brought in over the last couple of days. The other group of volunteers spent the day at St. Vincent DePaul. A couple of volunteers finished building shelves for paint storage, while others organized the warehouse. It ended up looking beautiful, just like a furniture store. With the new organization SVDP will be able to open its doors for furniture distribution next week. Thanks again to the flexibility of the PVs, today went very smoothly.
For dinner we were treated to a scrumptious breakfast casserole, fried potatoes and blueberry muffins. A very tasty and satifying dinner. For dessert we had ice cream with several topping choices.
The evenings reflection centered on one of the daily quotes from this week, Bernard DeFontenelle's "People almost always do great things without knowing how to do them, and are quite surprised to have done them." We each shared a time when we or someone we witnessed did a great thing that they did not know they had the power to do.
