Hospice series 2 ~ Making connection

Continued from Hospice series 1.  

It was 2007 when I heard about Hospice Society in Chilliwack.

My life was VERY busy just by being a mom with 3 children, they were 1year old boy, 3 years old girl and 5 years old boy. Also I was already giving Reiki treatments daily bases, and teaching Jikiden Reiki classes about bi-monthly. 

It was impossible for me to do any kind of volunteer work.

However, I really wanted to meet a lady who did a interview for my friend
at the Hospice.

I can't never forget the day when I met Lucy (who is now Executive Director at the Chilliwack Hospice Society).

I actually don't remember what I talked with her, but I do remember the first thing Lucy said to me even before we introduced each other.

In a very casual and friendly manner,
"Oh hi! Please be careful not to step on my rabbit when you have a seat. I am an animal lover and I have my bunny somewhere here. "

I LOVED it right away ! 

I was expecting the Hospice might be more serious environment, but meeting with Lucy
made me feel at home right from the beginning.

I found out that I would be able offer Reiki treatments for the Hospice patients, but
I would have to go through Hospice volunteer training. It would be 2 times a week for 5 weeks.

I wasn't sure if I could commit myself to even go through all the trainings,
but also volunteer work at that time of my life.

So, I decided to donate some money to the Hospice Society when I make extra money (well, it sounds like generous, but it was a small amount of money...) until I would be able to share my time as a volunteer.

That's all I could do at that time. 

I kept in touch with Chilliwack Hospice Society for few years by donating small amount
of money here and there, but in 2009, I came up with an idea ! 

to be continued,,, to Hospice series 3
