Volunteer

It was time.

There was no turning back.

I got myself into it. Even my husband didn’t even object. Instead, he volunteered to watch the kids for whole five hours!

I was anxious. What if I faint as soon as I open my fast (Muslims fast in the month of Ramadan. We don’t eat/drink anything starting from early morning till sunset. Almost seventeen hours in this part of the world).

What if they have to call an ambulance. What if I loose my temper.

So much can go wrong… It will be so embarrassing!

But I was all wrong.

I had a great time!

Didn’t faint.

I had laughs with my fellow sisters. We were enjoying our tasks while wearing the “very” bright orange vest (in fact, it was a great idea to wear an orange vest, people knew who to route their questions to).

Utah Islamic center did a fabulous job. They hosted an iftar for the entire community. Kids and adults enjoyed the event.

Our hard work paid off!

Go Volunteers!

Will I do it again?

Yes! Without a single hesitation (well, might have to bribe hubby next time, beef biryani?).
