You know sometimes when you hear something you think “what rubbish”, “yeah right” or “whatever”. Well there is a saying somewhere that says “you must give to receive” or “the more you give the more you receive” or something like that.
I have heard this on numerous occasions and never really paid much attention to it. Until now!
I have mentioned before that the company I work with has “adopted” a cottage at one of the children’s homes in this area, and one of the things we all have to do is “volunteer” there. Once a month we are given the afternoon off to go and assist the children with their homework.
Well I have been amazed at how much I have enjoyed this, so much so that I go quite a bit more than once a month. In fact a couple of times I have been to their school functions and fashion shows on the weekends and so have built up quite a good relationship with the kids.
Then yesterday I was in a bad mood – to say the least. I was not a happy camper! So what did I do, I went to the Children’s Home during my lunch break. I knew that they would cheer me up. And they did. There is nothing like feeling that you are appreciated. When I arrive there they are happy to see me and smothered me in hugs and kisses. There is no way that you can be in a bad mood or feel miserable after that. So in this case I received!
