Landed in Indianapolis early this morning. I probably got about 3 hours sleep last night, therefore I slept the whole flight ( although I could have used some more since I was nudged awake by my teammate. LOL ). But knowing My “Day of Wellness” was later in the day I felt energized once I walked off the plane. Today was the second-annual TSBDOW. This has to be one of my favorite things to do, pamper women who don’t get pampered much, give them a day to relax and forget any troubles they may be dealing with. All women deserve a little time for themselves, … a little ME time. I’m a big fan ME time :)
Caring for the women who reside at the local shelter, we provided haircuts, massages, manicures and pedicures courtesy of Natural Concepts. As well Kroger was a big help by providing a fruit platter and beverages which the women thoroughly enjoyed … I mean really enjoyed cause nothing was left on the plate when we were done. LOL
I had so much fun today, and it would not have been possible without the staff at Natural Concepts, they were amazing. As well as the Kroger family who beautifully put a display together that was beyond what they had to do. And finally, my teammates who donated clothing, the women were so thankful, they walked away genuinely happy.
The Julian Center is in critical need of numerous donations from toiletries, bedding, food pantry items, clothing and other miscellaneous items. A complete wish list of items can be found by visiting http://www.juliancenter.org/wish_list.html.
The smiles that the women walk away with are priceless, and the reason I will continue to do these days. Can’t wait to do the next one.
