365 Inspirations—280: Volunteers

"Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need."—Gillian Anderson

I now have two volunteers in my Monday class of close to 30 students from over 15 countries. I'm an ESL teacher at a local community college. Volunteers make such a difference in my large classes. It's hard to get to every single student and answer their individual questions and they often need individual help.

Today I am inspired by and grateful for all the people who have volunteered in my classes and helped my students. I'm actually grateful for anyone who volunteers for anything.

With busy schedules, work, life, family and other things that take up our time, it is not easy to volunteer for anything, but when you do, it makes such a difference.

Have you ever volunteered for anything? What was it?
