What you do makes a difference...

What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.     Jane Goodall

Today was a day of finishing. We finished up the two ramps we have been working on, we also had a crew that did a four site day doing little things at each house, and a crew that spent the day running around and picking up trash and hauling it up to the dump and picking up leftover lumber to bring back in the morning. A crew was also able to stay back and install a drop ceiling in one of the classrooms here at The Way, a job that the way folks asked if we would be able to do while we were staring here. We are happy to say that we were able to finish up everything we committed to and then some. Tomorrow will be spent packing up the tools and housewares and moving them to St. Vincent DePaul for the season, as well as helping out with distribution day at the Itmann Food Bank and spending time with the people up at Glen Rogers Manor. Another busy day on the horizon!

As this is our last day cooking at The Way, we really had a hodgepodge of a dinner trying to use as much up as we can. Even though it was all leftovers to some degree, it was delicious. We were even treated to blackberry cobbler with fresh blackberries from one of the sites today.

For reflection tonight we reflected on coal and how it can change and be a diamond. Using that metaphor, we were asked to share an experience we have had while being here that is a diamond to us.
