I decided to start volunteering. I’ve done it in the past, I’ve been a Girl Scout leader while my daughter was growing up, a classroom volunteer, field trip volunteer and more. But this is the first time since before my children were born that I’ve volunteered for an organization that didn’t benefit my children.
I researched various places online, checked with local groups who might need help and finally selected what I wanted to do. I’m delivering food for Pasco county Meals on Wheels program. Today was my first day, and I liked it! I drove my husbands truck because there were three large coolers to hold the food and we weren’t sure they would fit in my car. It turns out they will so I will take my car next time. I had trouble finding one of the houses because it wasn’t on my GPS but finally managed to figure it out (what did we do before GPS?). I had trouble making a U-turn at one of the homes because I was driving the Silver Beast and the road was very narrow, but after an eight point turn I made it! My last stop thought I wasn’t coming because I was a few minutes later than the last driver, but she was glad I showed up. All in all not too bad of a day for Day 1.
I encourage everyone to volunteer when you can, it’s good for others and it’s good for you too!
Can’t wait until next week!
