Although service is an everyday theme in our lives, in our post on weekly themes we dedicated Saturday for Service. And it’s Saturday!
It’s in our blood. We cannot fight it. We get overly excited about helping others not just financially, but with our sweat and tears. It’s harder for me to gauge via online connections when it comes to volunteer organizations. I have to see it with my own eyes and be there in person.
I do not have enough adjectives to describe my feelings for the possibilities that lie before us in working with some of the orgs here in Chiang Mai.
We visited the Free Bird Cafe last week to “check them out.” It was a fairly easy drive for J, he got us there on our new ride. We looked at the menu and I was excited about the possibilities of ordering some Burmese/Shan dishes. I was like a kid in a candy store. I kid you NOT. Having Shan style Papaya Salad and Passion fruit smoothie that day sent me to Food Heaven.
We made an appointment to meet with Lisa the same week and there we sat for over 4-hours chatting with her about the possibilities. It’s one of those things – I feel it in my gut and my core that I’m on the right path.
Tears of joy.
Tears of disbelief.
The Tears I could not hold back, for I feel I am at home.
Exactly where I need to be.
I am grateful today and I will be grateful tomorrow.
For there are endless possibilities to Give Large.
And you can too.
Cheers from Chiang Mai, Thailand.
