So this has been one of those weeks where I don’t feel like the greatest volunteer. For the next 3 weeks I have a V.E.R.Y. limited amount of time that I can spend doing anything outside of schoolwork.
I wasn’t able to make it into the office, but I did close down the Art of Surviving show at Germanna Community College. It was an afternoon of taking down, packing, loading artwork, and some cleaning for good measure.
Well, I guess not a total failure for the week, just less than I had hoped. I guess I just need to celebrate the small successes. The time I spent cleaning up the art show was time someone at the office was able to devote to a survivor, exactly where their attention belongs.
See, even a little time helps.
