For the first time in weeks, I took a break to create.
The volunteering threatens to be all-consuming, but I am determined to find balance.
Weeks ago, when I started this venture, I was hoping to connect one displaced Ukrainian family with a host family in my area. Quickly, the requests poured in and soon I was connecting three to five families a day.
Three days ago, I was asked to help a charitable organization offering free flights. I said I would.
“Great!” said the contact. “I’ll email you a list you can start on in the morning.”
100 families. There are 100 families on the list. After the shock subsided, I sent out a request for help.
By late afternoon, we had a team of five, three needing training, and one veteran like me.
At the end of the day, the list had grown to 145.
I’ll be back someday, I promise.
Meanwhile, here’s a flower for your day!
