volunteering is festive...

This holiday season, like last year I have been volunteering with my husband who works for the American Red Cross. He had been busy with lots events and helping soldiers and their families have a good holiday. 
 A big part of that has been to welcome all of the returning soldiers home. The Red Cross goes out to green ramp and brings coffee, juice, and snacks for anyone waiting, since sometimes flights get delayed and people can be sitting there a while. The coffee is great especially for the late night/early morning flights!
I have been going out to help with any after hours flights. It's nice to be able to volunteer and help out my husband, since he is working a lot of long hours.
After we get all set up and take turns serving, we can relax and visit a little with people. I think Andy is telling Santa that after all this work, he wants a vacation for Christmas!
Even with the long hours, we are both glad that we can help out and so happy that so many soldiers are home with their families this Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
