I have a passion for serving others.
My family and my faith planted this seed in me decades ago. Since then, this hunger has grown deeply meaningful to me.
I have two jobs and I look at both of them as opportunities to serve. By day I serve children, and by night I serve adults. I find each to be equally rewarding.
When I’m not working, I serve my family, of course, but I’m also constantly on the lookout for opportunities to perform random acts of kindness. Being a good Samaritan is a role I enjoy playing.
The older I get, the more rewarding the simple act of serving others means to me. And the more I serve others, the more I feel grateful for being alive.
Also, I believe that being anonymous about service acts is important.
Recently, at my evening job, a co-worker observed me picking up some trash in the parking lot and carrying it to the Dumpster.
She said, “Why did you do that? I know it’s not your trash.” I replied, “I know it’s not my trash. It’s everybody’s trash.” Her silence spoke volumes.
What this world needs is more people willing to catch others before they fall, and certainly not to step over them if they do.
After all, are we not on this Earth to help one another “walk the mile and bear the load?”
