With great trepidation, I drove the long drive to the humane society. I parked and walked inside to be greeted by a young lady,
"Can I help you?" She asked with a grin.
"I am looking to volunteer," I said, shyly averting eye contact.
"Honey, where have you been?" She said, smiling warmly and welcoming me inside. "When can you start?"
"When do you need me?" I asked.
"How 'bout we see you here at eight in the morning?" She asked. "Eight okay?"
"Sounds great to me," I said, walking out with a renewed vigor in my steps.
I heard the lady and the man who worked there talk excitedly amongst themselves about having a volunteer.
I am so excited! I haven't been this excited in years! I felt almost like I got a job! I am going to bust my butt tomorrow to give them a helping hand. Thank you to the commenter who suggested this! It is going to be so nice to have a reason to get up in the morning and to have some purpose to my days.
