As I was just walking the dog, I passed by "The Yard". The Yard is a place, by the highway and the coffee shop, where many Mexican boys and men gather each day, hoping to find work. Contractors and Vintners organize work crews from those gathered. Today as I passed, there were probably 50 men. I heard someone playing a harmonica and many others singing. It was a wonderful gift of happiness and a reminder to be grateful for the joys life can bring!
