With A Little Help From His Friends President Carter Builds (Some) Houses

It rained and then the sun started to shine as Habitat for Humanity kicked off the 31st Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Fort Worth and Dallas. President Carter started the Fort Worth event off with a daily devotion taken from his Sunday School class in Plains, Georgia.

The event was hosted jointly by Trinity Habitat for Humanity and Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity. This is the first time two cities have gone together to host the event.  President and Mrs. Carter joined over 5,000 volunteers to help build or repair more than 100 homes in seven days.  Volunteers came from all walks of life. For some it was their first time and for others it was something they do many times a year. Two regulars Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood were making one of their many trips. The Dallas Cowboys came out to serve lunch to the volunteers.  Among the Cowboys was Jason Witten and Brandon Carr.

It was a wonderful, happy occasion. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
