What do you do when you have the wind knocked out of you or when you feel deflated? To whom do you turn? How do you get back into the game when circumstances have knocked you down? This air compressor has inflated hundreds of basketballs, footballs, and bicycle tires since we moved into our Challenge House some six years ago. When I look at this humble apparatus it amazes me how the simplest tools can be used to show love to a neighbor. I believe that’s how we are supposed to interact with each other [...]
Thankful for talented friends, like Tina Mullins, who are willing to share their gifts. What a great art lesson today. We were secretly learning on a snow day. Shhhh!
