Making a Difference

It seems I have found my happy place to be and although it is not my all time favorite like dancing it is running a close second.  The past three and half weeks I have given about 40 hours to being a mentor for a sixteen year old-helping children from ages 5-11 with word recognition and counting to listening to a child read and answer quizzes.  One afternoon a week I am a receptionist at an office that handles foster care and this can be a sad few hours as I witness first hand families being torn apart and children being separated for one reason or another.  Although I am only answering the phones and opening mail it still stuns you when you hear and see the drama and know it is not a movie.

My happy moments and hours are with the little ones who just love everything about me just because I am there for them.  They automatically give you their hearts and trust plus they notice my earrings, my nail polish.    So this is a “feel good time as I am doing good for our children and I can see the difference it makes for our teachers and the students, too.”  I think if I were younger with more energy than I now own, I would be there every day of the week.  But for now I will continue my schedule and love the smile that I wear every day.
