Better Late Than Never

Just found this in my saved but not published box. We were leaving for D.C and I didn't finish it. Oh well, better late than never (:  BTW still in DC. Lovely weather. On to my April post now up in May.

A new cover look for Spring!  It is 9 in the morning and it is already 61 degrees. YEA!  Good morning Monday.

Yesterday at church we recognized a program that our church holds every Tuesday. It is a Payee program where the volunteers write checks for bills and food expenses each week. The client's money usually comes from Social Security disability benefits. I have been a volunteer for over 12 years now and it is so rewarding. Several of my clients are college grads but at some point reached a time in their lives where they could not cope any longer. One was in in an abusive marriage but is doing well now. They all would be challenged to handle their own money. Almost all our clients are on some meds that help them make it through each day. Part of our time is spent just listening and being a friend. I am always thankful for the blessings in my life after being there. I always take Jordy, my golden lab who is a service dog. The clients love him - showering him with hugs and (ugh) kisses.
