I used to love volunteering in my community. It always made me feel more aware of how others lived and was fulfilling to give back.  Since I previously worked for Non-Profit organizations in my former life, I had plenty of time to get involved with a variety of organizations.  That hasn't happened so much in the last decade due to work demands.  In fact, it has been at least 10 years since I have done any volunteer work!  Today my husband and I were able to go volunteer at our local food bank and pack weekend backpacks of food for children who otherwise wouldn't eat on the weekends.  It felt so good to get back to back volunteering and to actually feel like I was a part of something again.  Even better was sharing it with my husband.  He and I have never done something like this together and had a good time doing so.  I plan to start doing this once a month but am on the lookout for other volunteer opportunities in our community as well.  Just one more step in the right direction of getting my priorities aligned ....
