How wonderful it is...

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.      Ann Frank

What a great reminder for us to start doing stuff now to help the world, even if it is just a little bit. Today the little bit that the PVs did went a long way. One group continued to work on the roof and back porch out on the west end of the county, while another group continued to drywall closer to home. We were also able to send a crew out to a new site nearby to where we are staying to repair a porch roof and build a set of steps and platform onto the front porch which has none. The home owner was so appreciative of the volunteers efforts that she had coffee waiting for them when they arrived, as well as pizza and garlic bread at lunch.  She even offered to do their laundry for them tomorrow! Now that is what you call service.

Dinner this evening was a delicious grilled chicken, homemade broccoli and cheese soup and absolutely yummy apple spice cake, still warm from the oven.

Tonight for reflection we focused on opening our hands and opening our hearts, and in particular when this happens during our time in West Virginia.
