Today was one of my favorite days on the job so far. Another worker and I got to go shopping with a new foster mom to help her get situated with the two kiddos who recently joined her home. One of them was an infant and she was in desperate need of a crib. So we took this foster mom to Walmart and told her to go crazy and get whatever she needed for those kids. And by crazy I mean as crazy as you get with five hundred dollars, which at Walmart can be pretty crazy. As we checked out I felt so happy to have the ability to do this. Not that it was me personally, but just that our agency is able to do this for people. It was one of the times in my life where I felt great joy in giving to another person. It also felt like I was on a tv show whenever we were rolling around with our three shopping carts all loaded up.
Such a good day.
