Hope is not a 4 letter word
I had hoped to be in Pearlington today. With hugs and smiles all around. Foundations poured and ready for frames, the skeletons of houses delivered on trucks..
I had hoped to be in Pearlington today, putting the last minute touches on a blanket that has traveled around the world to warm the Earl family.
I had hoped to be in Pearlington today, and work hard all week, building and raising 4 homes, symbols of hope in a broken little town.
I had hoped to be in Pearlington today.. but I am here at home.
I still hope, I still dream and I know that by year's end I will be in Pearlington, sitting on the Earl's porch after a weeks' worth of hard work and effort, building their home and three others. I will sit on the porch and relax, and knit..and witness a new start for these families.
Through donations and grants and spreading the word.. this will come to pass.. help us make it so..
