Y’all, finding this notebook and cracking it open was probably one the best reminders for me. With all the stress and drama that’s been going on for forever now, I almost forgot why people should not shy away from volunteering for VBS. Personally, 2010 was a hard year for me.
For that matter, it was the start of a hard period for the family. And I remember going in blatantly, purposefully trying my best not to break down because I never wanted anyone, especially the visiting team that year to see, seeing as they were our guests. But I worked. Mostly forgot about myself. Went home. Stressed over things that were not under my control.
Anyone who knows me knows I love stationery. So I appreciated this. And this message made me cry. Looking back at it, this makes me cry all over again.
Today, it serves as a reminder of my duty, and also, for the relief and gratitude of having gone through all of that and coming out on the other side.
