Whether it’s this week or last for National Volunteering Week, volunteering is never out of style. And is always timely.
As a Sunday school teacher, it’s hard to say which age group I enjoyed most. I taught first graders for 6 years, 6th grade girls for 7 years, and pre-school for another 7 years. I was also a Girl Scout leader for 7 years. (Do I detect a pattern here?)
Well mainly, I enjoy young people and nobody more than my own grandchildren, of course!
This week, I’ve abandoned poor hubby with a refrigerator stocked with plenty of leftovers to survive on while I volunteer for Dear Darling Daughter an hour away. She’s writing her second book with a due date fast approaching. So while she writes and edits, I am keeping the carpooling lanes hot with 3 kids at different schools with 3 different times for drop-off and pick-up.
Spending time with these fascinating young people who are growing up so-o-o fast is a treat and a privilege.
