RAK Habitat Build...



Our RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) group has gotten off to a solid start in 2019. In January we sponsored a family with groceries, transportation and car seats. For February, we agreed to participate in a Habitat For Humanity build in Atlanta. Thanks to Cox Enterprises for sponsoring the build and RAK member, Lee, for inviting us out. What an awesome time observing a young lady drive the first nail of her home and knowing that her hard work and discipline will be changing her family tree for the better. I also got to go fanboy on Clark Howard: What an awesome, down to earth celebrity. It was a hard day’s work, but to quote Paul afterwards: “This was good for the soul.” Well said, and we look forward to another build in the near future…

Theodore Roosevelt Quote....


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”  ― Theodore Roosevelt
