I am already so sleepy but I can’t leave my work here just that, I need to finish what I need to finish. Tomorrow morning I will not be online to go to the venue where our swimming competition will be held. The kids are already sleeping I am the only one who is awake right now, but I will be sleeping soon, I just need to get things done here. I am actually typing closing my eyes now. Geez I need to split!
When we hear of disasters or people in need, we often thing about donating money or food and clothes, but time and effort, knowledge and skill are also things that can be “donated” to help those in need. A lot of people who want to help are not aware of various volunteer programs. Most of us see donate to this organization or to some government agency to help out, but what happens when the crises is passed? What if there is not a crisis that causes a need but something like famine or chronic poverty?
I have done volunteer work in my local community before on a limited bases, I have been a volunteer tutor and has helped out with road clean up. It helps a little in the community but what if we are able to volunteer abroad to share our skills and knowledge?
Volunteering has its own rewards. If we volunteer abroad we are able to help those in need, yet we are able to live and learn their culture. We can put smiles on the faces of people who we work with and we can impart life changing skills or knowledge to help people improve their lives.
I know that living a fairly comfortable life where we the things we need are readily available to us makes life easy in a since. But what if we had to live day to day wondering where our next meal came from or whether or not we could get a sick child to a doctor? There are many good people who volunteer their services to help those who are in need.
I know that I was happy to help when there was flooding in my home country. Having two daughters, I am not able to go there but I did collect food and clothing from friends and neighbors to send to those in need. I gave me a warm feeling to be able to help.
I supposed to meet some friends tomorrow but I just can’t make it, I will be very busy for our swimming competition. Though I would like to catch up later during dinner but I am not sure anymore if I could still make it. I hope I can though since that is just rare to happen, anyway I’ll just do my best to meet up with them after the swimming competition. Oh God, please lengthen my strength for tomorrow, everything is just so hectic.
My husband chose our wedding bands as he did my engagement ring. I love them both. The wedding band is simple and really sets off my engagement ring they are a perfect match. My husband’s wedding band is a simple gold ring. It is the mate of my wedding band. I think, though that I would like to get hem a new men’s wedding bands. I know he is happy with the one he has but I think I would like to get him something a little more stylish. Our wedding bands show our bond to each other and I know that he will appreciate a new wedding band if I get one for him, and I know that he will start to think about what to get for me in return.
