This was a busy week, but one that's left me feeling GOOD! I'm smiling just typing this.
I've always wanted to be the sort of person who volunteered and got involved with things, and honestly I don't know why I waited. Sure, it would have been difficult when the kids were little, but it could have been done. I found time to do *other* things.
This week I attended an orientation for new Humane Society volunteers and attended my first tour/training. I also (with the assistance of my son, oldest daughter and her boyfriend) helped the Meals on Wheels program assemble nearly 300 cups of strawberry shortcake. It went by fast and we had a great time. Can't wait to go back.
If you (like me) always thought about volunteering "someday", let me encourage you to make that day today. There are so many things you can do - and in most cases you don't need any special training, just a little bit of time. As little as an hour a week can make a HUGE difference.
