There’s nothing like a hard day’s work. When you can look back at the end of the day and see what you’ve accomplished, it brings a sense of joy. However, that joy is escalated when you’ve put in a hard day’s work for someone you don’t even know to take a load off of their shoulders.
Our group has spent the last day and a half in Ashland, Kansas, the epicenter of the damage from the Starbuck Wildfire. We’ve stepped out of our comfort zones as we’ve stepped onto the properties of strangers. We’ve heard their stories; we’ve seen their struggles. We’ve learned how to do new jobs, and we’ve made it our goal to get through just “one more stretch of fence” before we call it quits.
It’s been a couple of hard days’ work, but gosh, it’s felt good.
