International Women's Day

My Mom on the left and my Aunt Marlyne on the right ( two of the greatest women I know)

Today is my first day of volunteering for my local Women and Children's Crisis Centre. I will be teaching the women and children the basics of sewing, crochet and embroidery. I am so excited to get started. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I hope to continue to do for a long time. I think if you have the means, have a safe roof over your head and are lucky to have a wonderful supportive husband like I do , you know how fortunate you are. It just takes that one good or bad relationship to change things drastically in your life. I haven't always had life as good as I have it now. I have had those relationships that were not great and didnt make me a better person. I am so thankful for every little thing in my life and I love to volunteer. It is true that you get far more out of it then you would expect. I enjoy seeing people happy even if only for a moment. I do a bit of volunteering with my husband through his Rotary Club and I always meet great people who support and love the community. I hope the women enjoy their day as much as I am going to.

P.S. Happy International Women's Day.
