My First Volunteer Experience

The job of helping less fortunate people is one of the best feelings. The city of Washington D.C has been like a second home to me since; I was a teenager. Leaving my homeland and coming to the United States has both been bitter and sweet. I want to give back to my community, but I did not always have the time, this left a feeling of emptiness in my heart. While I was working, my spirits kept telling me that something was missing. God has put us on this Earth to make a positive impact on others and we need to love each other. I believe God brought us here to help others, including our family and those in our community.

On top of my resolution list, this year is to take the time to help others. I want to volunteer and give back to my community. I feel that this volunteer work will allow me to have a sense of accomplishment and a purpose. I registered with the Salvation Army. My first outing is at the Safeway Feast of Sharing event on November 22nd and the 27th from 1 pm to 5 pm. This center is located at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. I took two days off from work for this volunteer activity. I felt it was time to stop making excuses and give back to my community. There were a total of 20 volunteers at this event. Every one of us took time off so we can give back.
Working with the other volunteers has been an inspiration. I met three seniors that have been contributing to the community for many years. They took hours to help set up and made sweet potatoes pie and other food. Everyone volunteering was happy and cheerful. We all come from different backgrounds, but with the same mission to help others. We did not even think about race because; we are all God’s children. We all want to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Safeway has been giving back to those in need for the past 20 years. This event around Thanksgiving will feed 5,000 people in the community. There is also a health expo, and clothing will be given away. Over 1,000 people volunteered for this event.
My experience at the Safeway Feast of Sharing was a wonderful experience. I learned to be thankful for what I have and to praise God for all that he has given me. The people I met shared their stories with me. We laugh and hugged while sharing experiences. This event will hold a place in my heart. We need each other; to make the world a better place for our generation and the community that we live in; You do not need to have a lot of money to help others. Even .25 cents a day can change the lives of others, and you can have something to feel proud of. We all need each other to make the world a better place.

Happiness Is The Key To Healthy Life

My happiness is my greatest gift to others🦋you only have one life to live, be joyful, be happy, and be free. Live your life, don’t live your life for others. Be proud of who you are, you are wonderfully made by the most high God. You are beautiful and God don’t make mistakes. God loves you just the way you are, and you should love yourself just the way God made you. Life is bitter and sweet, but don’t go for the bitter of life; go for the joy of life because; you’ll find peace, happiness, and freedom. The world is full of hate. People will dislike you for no reason. For instance some people dislike me because; I’m pretty, some dislike me because; I’m skinny, and some even dislike me because; I post about God.  You can’t always please people, but you can please God. God appreciate you. God loves you🙏Live for you, don’t live for others

What Is Life As A Single Mother’s

Being a single mom is not easy, you go through bouts of happiness, devotion, never-ending love, fatigue, impatience, hopelessness, insecurity, and the list are never-ending. It’s a difficult journey; only the strong survive. 

 Living life as a single mom has been very difficult for both me and my daughter, the endless hours of crying. You never knew the pain that single mothers goes through until you become one. We all make bad decisions in our lives and need to step up to the plate when thrown curveballs. It helped end my future college endeavors and turned into a bittersweet person. 

 Single mothers don’t get enough credit, enduring years of stress, worried, and pain. Not to mention; trying to find employment or a decent babysitter. It wears you down and tiresome, there are a lot of positive traits that go along with single motherhood. Watching them grow and bond with you. Seeing him/her off to that first day of school. The best friend who looks up to you and asks for advice. Those joyous occasions and birthdays spent in celebration; and so much more.

 What it comes to being a single mother; you’ve got to make the best of things. Always make time for yourself, like setting a set schedule to relax and unwind. I work 6am-2pm: My daughter school schedule 9am-4pm. After-school program from 4pm-6pm. I’m grateful to have two lovely sisters who help me every morning dropped my daughter to the school bus, while I’m at work. Things I do after work: Read the bible, write on my journal, reading an inspirational book, play soft music, dance, and do some workout. I try to go to different places to occupy my two hours of me-time. The weekend is a mommy and daughter time; we go to chuck-cheese, chick-fil-A, Dave & Buster, playground, and many more. Activities like these, help with anxiety, stress, build a good relationship with your children; because when mommy happy children happy.

The road may be rough in the beginning but it is well worth it. When all’s said and done, you have endless love, joy, peace, and fulfillment in life. My daughter is everything to me and I cherish every moment we spend together; Having the title of a single mother isn’t tragic. It is a true Blessing.

Benefits of Praising God

Apart from the past week and weekend being extremely valuable to me, it has also given me exceptional spiritual healing. The power of prayers has made my life decisive and purposeful. Over the years, I have not gone through the best in life, but I thank God for helping me overcome difficulties on the way. In some instances, God makes us go through obstacles in life to learn from them. With the knowledge acquired in these instances, you can encourage and assist others overcome their problems. How beautiful and pleasing it is when one does an important task that makes a huge difference in the lives of other individuals. Every one of us is obligated to make a big or small difference in other people’s lives. 

Why You Need Prayers in Your Life 

God has given us 24 hours a day, and He only needs you to pray and worship Him for only two hours from that twenty-four hours. Prayers allow you to receive answer from God, receive His power, hear what He wants you to do, get anointing, get knowledge, get wisdom, get blessings, get understanding, get grace, as well as favors. Imagine yourself getting all these benefits by only dedicating two hours in a day to worship and give thanks to Him. The Scripture of Psalms 91:1-2 tells us that, ‘We will be saved a lot of needless anxieties by turning to God and trusting in Him.’

Best Moment in Time

My past week has been fabulous and entertaining. It was the most exciting moment of my life. My birthday celebration was on Thursday, 20th June. It was my best birthday celebration. This is because I was surrounded by positive people and intelligent entrepreneurs.

The entrepreneurs were so knowledgeable and therefore I obtained valuable information about businesses and life. This helped me to renew my goals. Most importantly I am grateful to my two sisters and my daughter for making my birthday fun and memorable.

How I Celebrated My Birthday
We celebrated my birthday by going to three restaurants within Washington, that offer my favorite foods. We started off by going to “Milk & Honey “restaurant for a taste of their burger. The burger was served with shrimp and bacon. The burger was properly seasoned thus making it very delicious.

We then proceeded to Lauriol Plaza. The restaurant offers Mexican cuisines. I ordered my favorite Mexican dish and then we proceeded to a Kenyan Restaurant. .The Kenyan restaurant is widely known for its famous dish that is “samaki wa mchuzi”. There was no way I could let my birthday pass without satisfying my craving for a Kenyan made fish. The fish was so delicious and I enjoyed it fully.

My Birthday Dress
I purchased my floral birthday dress from Ross. The dress was cost was below $100. When I went to Ross searching for a birthday dress, the floral dress that was placed at the dressing area caught my attention. However, I was not certain whether it would fit me perfectly due to its size. I decided to fit the dress and to my surprise, it fit me perfectly. I have been receiving a lot of compliments whenever I wear the dress.

To conclude, it`s good to live a happy and joyful life filled with love and excitement. Everybody has problems and troubles. However, despite your tribulations and sorrows, there is also happiness, joy, and victory as well. This is why you should strive to “live your life” each day.
