The new Mama is so preoccupied with DIY projects for the little one. Yesterday, I spent my free time searching for free crochet leg warmer patterns for babies and looking around Pinterest for some inspiration. After an hour, I find myself overly excited for all the crochet projects that I could possibly make from baby beanies to shoes, headbands, dress, to glass cozies, shawl, and even machine washable burlap runner. Oh no! Focus please. I really wanted to finish one project this time and that is a leg warmer for the little one to use when we’re going out. Hoping for a lighter load at work so I can start working on that crochet project in mind.
I came across Sing for Hope and got hooked reading about the organizations activities. It’s a non-profit organization conducting activities for the community and I admire the people behind it. Running such an organization is never easy for there are people who have nothing to do but say something against an institution. I’ve been wanting to be involved in organizations like that but I doubt if I can commit my time helping volunteers carry out the projects in the community. One great project is putting street drum set where most of those neotech drums & percussion are donated by famous people. This project aims to give people easy access to arts. That way, people will appreciate music more.
Wish there’s a local institution based in the city that have similar projects with Sing for Hope. I don’t sing (because the notes don’t like me) but hearing beautiful songs soothes the spirit. Should there be similar organization nearby, maybe I’d love to devote a couple of hours a week for this ministry. Working for such is not financially rewarding but it is a nice way to de-stress and boost the spirit and self-worth. It’s a great way to forget own concerns by helping other people.
