On a personal note - I stopped by my church today to pickup some things for my 6 month old, Ella Louise at the community services department. So, I decided to stick around and asked to help out. It was moving to spend time just helping others outside of the training environment. Now, I have volunteered many times in the past, but this was different. I actually paid attention to others, folks picking up clothes, food and such.
There are so many people in need, some who were there for a hot meal, something we can take for granted. I looked up and realized an hour plus had went by, there are things in our lives where we say "that is time wasted I will never get back". Well, that was cherised time.
I enjoy volunteering my time, especially when it comes to fitness and health, but this was special, mostly humbling because our time is precious, if we have, then we are called/charged to give to those in need.
Visit me on FB to share your giving moments, really :-)
