What did I learn?

After volunteering at the Crisis nursery for the first time?

-how can I leave them

-play dough is fun to play with

-if they are sad, you have to hold them

-cream cheese is better than crackers to 2 year olds

-please, sit by me until I go to sleep

-when you paint from your heart, you paint your dreams

-it’s important to have your own pillow and blankie

-if you are a silly monkey and tease the alligator, watch out

-read me a bed-time story

-where’s my mom

-if you help pick up the toys, you get a sticker

-we all have to go to the bathroom, again

-is it Friday yet

I am thankful for the family I am blessed to be a part of.

  1. Pass the Kleenex box, and be thankful for intact families.

  2. All of that and more. It was so hard – but some of the best work I have ever done – working at the group home.

    Good for you – for doing this. They need it.

    peace…
