Worn out from the weekend


Monday, May 13, 2013

I worked hard this weekend volunteering at the Highland Center. I have given beyond my normal giving, and went way outside of my comfort zone. Now Iím worn out. I worked as an information volunteer, and helped young families who wanted to hike with their children get the gear that they needed and find an easy hike.
Itís time for me to back off, relax, and be gentle to me. Itís been a long time since Iíve felt this tired.
Today is a time for rebuilding.

    Teaching others can be tiring. Congratulations on giving of yourself, though, so others can enjoy their hikes!

    Sounds like a wonderful volunteer opportunity even if it did wear you out. So great that families are trying to get their young kids involved in hiking also. Kudos on a great job!

    I wish i had more time to do some volunteer work. I used to volunteer at a retirement center when I worked part time but since my company got busy I have had to work more hours than I really want. It is wonderful that you did what you did. Get some much deserved rest!!
