First Day Of Real Work

April 10, 2012

Our blogger today is Norma Jones, Habitat Wake homeowner in Cary and participant in Habitat Wake’s Global Village trip to Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras.

Hola  Everyone, I am Norma,  proud habitat homeowner from Cary. I worked on my home as well as several others in the past but Lord knows now I know what real work is.

Brick making is no joke it will and has put a new appreciation  in my eyes for mass producing materials. I was thinking thank God I didn’t have to do this kind o f work on my home or maybe I would not have been able to build it. I did meet and enjoyed spending  time with the neighbor children that came by our work site.  They helped me learn much more Spanish and I enjoyed helping them with English. This was the best kind of work. I had forgotten what hard work it is building a home . But I did meet David (aka Dady).  It was love at first sight, he smiled at me and that is all it took to melt my heart. David is 3 years old his father is one of the brick makers and he is so cute and sweet.

So I will be going back tomorrow to grow in my relationship with David and continue making some adobe bricks.
