So, I am really starting to like these community service experiences. Yesterday, Yahya was scheduled to assist in construction of the Secret Garden at the Main Library downtown and I ended up having to bring Hawwa and Siddiqah along as they were already in the car coming back from a dentist appointment. It worked out very well as they were allowed to volunteer along with Yahya. He worked on the construction of a raised flower bed while the girls painted craft sticks and flower pots along with making seed bombs. We all absolutely loved it and hope to volunteer there again next month.
I don’t tend to visit that particular library too often as it isn’t very close, but I do follow them on facebook and have noticed that their library programs seem to interest me greatly. Well, last night one of the librarians approached another sister and I and mentioned that they had recently received a grant for Islamic materials and were also inviting Islamic speakers for diversity discussions. She seems very excited about the possibilities and even asked us if we knew of any potential speakers. This made me feel very happy as well as welcomed.
