Change – so much more than a six letter word

Spread the love
The anticipation mounted as we made the trek to meet the family we would be building for.  The chanting of “Gringa” in the streets brought a huge smile to everyone on board the truck, and none any bigger than mine.  As we rounded the corner, I saw change!  Sandra’s dream is coming alive. I feel warm inside and immensely happy. 
The pole that once stood with a complete mess of matted electrical wires now stands with neatly strung wires. As I look to my right I see a fence around the basketball court. As we follow along our tour of the village, I also notice that individuals are sweeping their walkways, pouring cement around their homes, watering their plants and hanging their clothes out to dry. I am feeling their pride. 
So yes, change is much more than a six letter word, and I feel truly blessed to have been part of this change.
