thank you brittany, chrissy, and cheryl
I owe you.
this thursday night,
steve and I will attend chloe's induction into
the National Junior Honor Society.
chloe read your comments on my blog and spoke with you too.
you helped her see
how her choices today will affect her future.
the application was lengthy;
we put it off until the last day.
her classmate, we'll call sally, said,
"you probably won't get accepted,
because you rushed through the application".
sally didn't get accepted.
I'm just sayin' . . .
chloe wrote the essay entirely by herself
When I wake up the first thing I think about is me, what I’m going to do, where I’m going to go, how my things are going to get done. Normally, that is how everyone is. I know when I’m doing things for my self it may feel good for a little while but it probably won’t last very long. I also know from experience that when you help other people it makes you feel good and proud of yourself for the rest of your life! Not only does it make them feel good, but it makes me feel 10 times better that I know I helped!!!
One thing to really consider is that when you do service you are helping others. I know when I help others, and I see their smiles, I did a good job. I don’t think anyone could like it more than the person you did the service for. In
Another thing to ponder is how GOOD you feel after you help or do service! The best thing, in my opinion, is helping because it is definitely a win-win situation! They get helped and you get the great, warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you help! I still feel great about doing what service I did and it is something I would definitely recommend to my friends and family!!!
You may think that taking time out of your life and spending more of it for others, you could lose something, but actually you gain much much more! The more you give the more you get! Service is one of those things that you get addicted to, in a good way.
I am so proud of her!
