Have you ever volunteered for something with the intent of helping others,
but the people you went to help ended up helping you?
One of the main reasons I love Pi Beta Phi is because of my chapter’s dedication to
Baylor Pi Phi partners with South Waco Elementary to promote literacy
as well as just be friends and mentors to the kids.
Yesterday four of my fellow Pi Phis and I had the opportunity to help with their after school
VALENTINE’S DAY PARTY!
We decorated fresh baked cookies & crafted homemade valentines
with all of the pink, red, & white items you can imagine!
Hanging out with these kids never fails to fill me with an abundance of joy.
Bright smiles & warm hugs are a constant companion to the students.
Spending quality time with the kids reminds me of how selfish I am.
I have every reason in the world to be happy, but, too often,
I choose to stress about fleeting “problems” like exams.
Joy is a choice. Love is a choice.
These kids know how to choose both.
The valentines & cookies we made were simple.
Anyone could do this with family or friends.
It’s always fun to spend quality time with loved ones while being creative!
A valentine does not have to be for a boyfriend, girlfriend, crush, or spouse.
A valentine can be for anyone whom you appreciate and love.
If only people treated every day like Valentine’s Day . . .
Choose joy today. Choose love today.
Remind someone that they are loved and special.
. . . Zoey’s cookie definitely one the award for craziest toppings!
(Needless to say, she had a major sugar high.)
