Yesterday while volunteering I visited my favorite old lady. I see her every Friday.
But she has a fading memory and always forgets me. Here’s how our conversation goes each week…
*knock on her door*
Me: Hi, it’s Joel from Meals on Wheels!
OL: Ok please come inside.
Me: I can’t come in, it’s not safe right now, remember?
OL: Oh right. Well why are you here?
Me: I’m from Meals on Wheels. This is Joel, I come every Friday.
OL: Well what day is it today?
Me: It’s Friday.
OL: You know I have a friend who’s son’s name is Joel. He’s a nice boy too.
Me: Yes, you told me about him last Friday.
OL: Well will I see you again next week?
Me: You certainly will.
OL: Great! I’m looking forward to it!
Me: Me too. 🙂
Is it sad that this is becoming the highlight of my week?
Have a great and relaxing weekend, everyone.

Not sad at all. You’re doing a good thing. You are helping these people have something to look forward to. The fact that you’re feeling good about it just makes it a win-win. Nice work.
Thanks JR. That’s the beauty of volunteering. Everybody wins. Have a great weekend!
