Building on the Foundation
The MsIndependent ladies and I came together to support Habitat for Humanity. We are apart of the woman's build division meaning the volunteers are all women. It was my first time volunteering and I must say it was a great and warming experience. Habitat for Humanity is about building homes for families and giving them hope for a better future. Each person in the family gets their own room. They get to have a place where they can feel safe and gain lasting memories that will build their character. Children get to come home and do their homework in their own rooms or at the kitchen table with their siblings; they get to invite friends over and be proud of their home. We met a family who already had their home built; it was a young woman with three children. We said a prayer for the family and their new home. It was a heartfelt moment. Afterward, our group headed over to a concrete foundation to put up the walls of a new home for another family.....
Yes, I was caught taking selfies. An older man approached me and asked, "I have to know, what does 'Dopey Broad' mean?" The girls and I chuckled and explained to him it was a generational term for 'cool chick'. The man laughed and smiled along with us. He was too sweet.
Yes, I had to wear my boots.
Yes, I am Dope.
