I had the great pleasure of being invited to the Hospice Volunteer Banquet. It was the hospice staff's way of saying thank you and was so sweet of them.. I got this beautiful certificate , a scroll with a poem on it and potted plant.
It was fun to meet some of the others that were volunteers and the hospice staff. They had some very touching stories too. I wish I could do more, really.. We have 25 patients right now that we do things for.
Just a note, if you are looking for ways to help in your community, this is a wonderful way..
I am a Non-contact volunteer, because I work full time and have the children at home, so I can't go to the homes, like a contact volunteer can. But I make gifts, crafts and send cards and the hospice staff distribute them to the patients.. They said the patients enjoy those little things so much.. It brings a smile to their faces, when they get a card or a little happy..
Well, I hope all of you have a wonderful day.. It's sunny here and warming up.. YEAH!
Bunches of hugs!
