As some of you may know or remember from our November Newsletter, I began volunteering this month with Uplift Center for Grieving Children. And after two sessions, I am very happy I signed up. It gives me great satisfaction helping the children and their families through a process I know all too well. It helps me with grief all while I'm helping them. Just the conversations in general help because I can relate and they now know that they aren't alone. Just like many of us, they think no one understands and they have bottled up their emotions. But seeing their faces light up or their heads nodding in agreement when you share an experience or talk about a feeling that they have or currently going through makes it all worth it! Yesterday I left the peer support group feeling a little lighter because I was relieved of some of my own emotions that can be heavy at times. If you are interested in volunteering or know anyone who might be, please feel free to reach out to Uplift! I have attached the flyer for their new location that I currently volunteer*. *Uplift has 6 locations throughout the city.
