a hearty Saturday walk

I was all prepared to spend 14 hours judging a high school speech and debate tournament today, but as luck would have it, there was an excess of volunteers. I find it touching how many people volunteer their time for these tournaments. Students who have graduated even come back to volunteer alongside parents and coaches. GG’s coach has been giving his Saturdays to the cause for somewhere around 26 years.
For me today, the generosity of a group of graduates means a Saturday to myself, to work on gifts, snuggle with the pets, and walk the dog in the pouring rain. Aah, nice.
