Where am I heading? I estimated my trip to be approximately an hour. Then, I left from my place fifteen minutes earlier.
I maybe of many things, juggling anything. However, I have a dark side, my ultiminate weakness. I felt like my Zorro baby for I was lost and couldn’t find my way. I wasted forty minutes finding my direction. It was difficult to get a cab. I boarded the bus. Fortunately, the driver was kind and helpful.
I reached my destination but I was late. NOT ON MY FIRST DAY!! The staff was concerned that I would stood them up or I forgot. (or I was being irresponsible)
Of course not!!! This commitment is the covenant I made with God.
What a shame!!! I told them my poor sense of direction problem and they understood.
I was late for the orientation but I was introduced to everyone. It was my privileged to belong to a new family. I fulfilled my promised to God to help others by sharing my skills.
Today is my first day as a volunteer computer teacher for migrant skilled workers in the Basic Computer course. This outreach program is organized by the Holy Family Church. I found the place through a friend who asked me to accompany her when she registered for another course.
It’s my first time teaching adults and some of my students are from other nationalities. I told my students that none of them will come out from my class without learning anything. After what I said, I witnessed the glow in their eyes and they were very grateful.
In all I do, I always give my best with or without compensation. When they learned something from me that will be my reward.
My baby Chinito turns 1 today. Happy birthday, baby!!! Sorry, I am not there… Miss your cute little laugh and our “appear!”
