I have a confession to make. I have found the 52 week project to be harder than I expected. It's a disappointment to me because I don't believe that finding time in a week to do something nice for others should be difficult, but somehow I've already missed two weeks! I'm trying to not let that derail me though from the rest of the year.
Several weeks ago we had the privilege to work with several of our friends to make over a room at a homeless shelter for families. It was a wonderful project because the children (between us there were 11) were able to help in most aspects of the project from start to finish. The project took a full day to complete but the difference it made was huge! It was also a very forceful reminder of just how blessed we truly are.
The children made art to go on the walls.
We cleaned, spackled, sanded, painted and decorated.
These guys worked incredibly hard all day long.
The finished room.
Thanks to Cathy and Tucker for organizing and letting us be a part of such a wonderful day.
