My Horoscope for Tuesday 12-5-23
I admit it. I read my horoscope. Daily. For entertainment value, mind you, …and food for thought. That latter reason grabbed me when I read my Tuesday horoscope. Specifically, “…do something to make a difference.”
“Making a Difference” is at the core of what SERTOMA is all about. It is what their Mission statement is all about:
To meet the needs of communities through volunteer service.
To create communities of change under common leadership and with a common voice that will serve the many in need.
To improve the quality of life today for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss through education and support.
Leona Valley Days
Melody and I moved to Leona Valley in October 2000 and I joined Leona Valley Sertoma in the summer of 2001. It was the best thing to happen to me in many ways. For starters, I got to know many of my neighbors better and much quicker than I might have otherwise. The big one though, was being part of “making a difference” in the community, by participating in the development, planning, and implementing the various events, activities, and fundraisers put on by the group. I have some experience with volunteering and serving my community, as I grew up in a small town and I’m an Eagle Scout. Being a part of SERTOMA took it to a whole new level. As an adult, you get busy with your life, work and family take up most of your time and, as a result, my “making a difference” became writing a check to support this, or that, nonprofit. Donating to a worthy cause is noble and I still do it. However, rolling up my sleeves and being a part of “making a difference” and seeing that difference happening is so much better. I’m a better person, because of SERTOMA. To learn more about Leona Valley Sertoma and what they are doing, check out their Home Page or talk to a member.
Reading Your Horoscope
So, what’s in a horoscope? Whatever you read in to it. On Tuesday I was reminded to “make a difference”, and to be kind. This week we donated a couple of toys to the “CHIPS for Kids” toy drive, we do this every year. I guess my New Year’s resolution will be to find more ways to “make a difference” in my community and in the lives of those I come in contact with throughout the year. I hope you will join me and find ways to “make a difference”, too.
