Things I Love Thursday!
♥ November!: You can’t even know how excited I am that it’s no longer October. October was a whirlwind of emotion that made my world spin and overwhelmed and exhausted me. So much that I had to take a day off to recoup. But I feel mucho recharged and in a much better place moving forward. I think November is going to hold lots of good things! What are you looking forward to in November?
♥ Volunteering: I got back into the Volunteer bug again. I signed up for a 20’s & 30’s night at the Oregon Food Bank and it ended up being so much fun! Grant you, I don’t want to look at another pinto bean or twist tie for quite some time, but it was definitely worth my 2.5 hrs. And just in case you’re wondering how much you can really do in 2.5 hrs . . . This was the first time all of the volunteers that signed up showed up and with 41 volunteers we packages over 12,000lbs of food which accumulated to feeding over 9,000 people. In a time when hunger in America (1/3 of that being children), that number blows my mind. If you haven’t gotten involved in your community yet, I highly recommend you do. It’s worth it! “There by the grace of God go I”
♥ Sleep: They say most people are getting too little sleep. I can attest to that. If you haven’t slept lately, you really should. Turn off the electronics, so no for a night and go to bed early. You’ll be amazed at how recharged you’ll feel!
