Today, my daughter and I volunteered at a Habitat for Humanity site. Though I am beat, it was one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done.
I got involved in this project through FOJ Maria. I'm glad that she did. I met the folks who run Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami, including new FOJs Michelle, Rud, and Gavin. I will be doing more with them in the future. I worked with the most amazing group of people. We were such a diverse group, that we could have only been brought together through a project like this. We worked alongside the new homeowner, a single mom. She gave us all open invites to visit her anytime. I can't wait until she moves in!
One of my favorite sayings goes like this--"You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can not repay you." What have you done recently for someone who can not repay you? How did it make you feel? Is there anything else like it in the world? Tell me about your experience.
