In my church, I am on the Caring Committee. I have the option to make meals for sick people or call them or send them a card or visit them. Well, today, I got to bring someone to an appointment at the hospital. I have not done this before because of my day job. But I knew there was a need and I didn't hesitate to let work know I wouldn't be showing up. I woke up early to pick this woman up at her home. We had a very nice conversation on the way to the hospital. I stayed with her for a little while, said a prayer with her and then I was off. I did some shopping, reading and sole searching. I have had a rough week and was feeling a little out of balance. Before I knew it, the time had come for me to pick her up and bring her home. Again, we had a nice chat on the way home. She is a woman who is very strong and independent. She relies on her church family because she doesn't have family in the area.
I am hooked! I can easily take a break from my corporate job to help someone out like this! She was very appreciative and I felt like I was doing a great thing! I am a little more balanced today :-)
