My wife took the time to fill up the Volunteer Form in our church. She really wanted to join the choir so; she signed for it. Back in her Elementary and High School years, she belongs to a church choir and she's an "Alto". She told me that she enjoyed the practice and serving during masses. Her favorite season is during Christmas. She loves carolling and they gave out letters to some parishioners and when they are welcome in the household, they provide an envelope for donation as well as the schedule and they sang Christmas Carols.
When she was in college in Xavier University, she auditioned for the Glee Club and she was in. Though the Glees are not singing in masses, she enjoyed being a member of the group. They traveled to different cities and did series of concerts. On Christmas Season, before the school breaks for the holiday, the Glee Club presents a Christmas Concert in the University. Those are her cherished memories and I can see her eyes twinkle when she shared those happy thoughts to me.
She traveled halfway around the globe and her heart yearn to serve in the church so; she volunteered and I tag along. Actually, for Tuesdays, we both volunteered to help the B-I-N-G-O initiated by the parishioners in the church.
Oh, we had fun. Two volunteers did not show up today. They told us to sit on the table and sell cards. We were 7 manning the selling of different cards and we were able to adjust and get the flow very quickly. I enjoyed it and we met interesting people. Most of the frequent players knew everyone so; they said ... we are newbies and they welcome us. Next week, we will be there again.
