Volunteering

Although it's not easy to do when you're feeling depressed, volunteering for others can sure make you feel better. When my mother moved into an assisted living facility, I wanted to be able to visit and somehow entertain her and the people who lived in her facility. So, after seeing the film, Walk the Line, I rented my first Autoharp. I felt sure I could play as well as Reese Witherspoon. Well...maybe over time that is and with lots of practice.

My experience with the Autoharp has been nothing short of amazing. I've not only entertained my mother and her new friends, but I'm accompanied on the harmonica by a 90-year-old resident. How much fun is this?
