Yesterday my friend and I played and sang at two different retirement centers, one before lunch and one after.
Someone later asked me why I gave up my Saturdays for community service.
The reason is simple. I get as much or more out of the experience than the audience does.
They clap and sing along and are so appreciative that I really get into the music and push myself to perform at the top of my game. And I always come away feeling great.
Not because I feel like I did someone a favor …
It is because I was able to share in their joy and take some away with me.
And that’s an awesome gift to receive!
