Before Faith started school last week I received an email from the Room Mom Coordinator asking if anyone wanted to volunteer to be the room mom this year. My first reaction was, “yes”. After talking with Tom, he said, “No way! Take time to adjust this year.” The next day I received a phone call from the Room Mom coordinator for the older grades who just happens to be a friend of my Aunt Lisa. She personally called me to see if I wanted to take the job. I had to laugh since I had considered it just the day before. I told her that I would talk to Tom about it. I kind of felt like God was calling me to this job, especially since I had been personally called by Lori to do it. I also told Tom that if I was going to continue paying the tuition for CDS then I was going to have to get emotionally involved in this school. I have already been anxious about paying for next year and we are only three days into this year!
I took the job. It didn’t sound that difficult and I thought it would be a good way to get involved. I would like to possibly work at the school later on and this would be a good way to get to know people as well. I had the Room Mom meeting Friday morning and it was a bit overwhelming. There seems to be so much to plan and do. I am basically a recruiter. I am to get the volunteers that are needed throughout the year. I guess it is a good thing that “recruiting” is one of my gifts.
Nothing like jumping in with both feet!!
