I attended an Altrusa meeting tonight. My friend Beth has been very involved for years and is becoming district governor this year... I think that's right. Anyway, she's a rock star and I admire her and this is a huge part of her life.
A month ago she posted this banner on her FB page and I thought it was brills. When I commented she said, for the hundredth time, that I would love it and should join.
The president of the chapter in my area posted within minutes that they would love to have me visit the next meeting. Beth said she'd go with me... even though she would have to miss her own Altrusa meeting...
... And tonight I met a wonderful group of women. I think this might be for me. A group of women, working together, to make our community a better place. It is "a builder of women."
I really like the sound of that, "a builder of women."
I sat in the meeting wanting to be worthy of these women who volunteer so much of their time. But since I'm me, I also became obsessed that there might be spinach in my teeth. I flashed a quick grizzly at Nissa, who also came along for the visit. She gave me a nod and I calmed down, loving that she knew what I was asking.
So... I'm excited!
