Of course, I do confide in him, and a few other very close, life long friends, but otherwise I prefer to refrain from that sort of conversation.
On the other hand, I love to work, and also love to talk about work when the time is right ~ and not actually interrupting the work itself!
I've found passion in all of my work and volunteering efforts, too.
Recently I have spoken publicly a few times on behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT for some civic groups. It is wonderful that these groups allow me some of their precious time. Time is valuable. People are busy.
Have no fear that I will be asking for monetary donations. I will not, although they wouldn't be refused!
On the contrary, Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT is happy to raise our own funds. We ask only to speak on the need for volunteers in our ReStores and on our builds. We also mention the need for gently used items to be donated to our ReStores as well as shoppers to frequent our ReStores often.
If these requests are heard by listening ears, and then shared ~ and shared ~ and shared... the ReStores will thrive and raise their own funds. This certainly helps accomplish the mission, which is to provide decent and affordable homes in our community.
So, if you have a community group, senior group, civic group, church group, or any group with ears, I'd love to come and speak to you about Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT! You will become passionate about it, too!
