1. I had to retire

When I was 45 due to a back injury. I knew I would become severely depressed doing nothing.
I had volunteered at my church and the kids school during my working years.
But I decided to branch out and began volunteering at my local hospital and became a Master Gardener volunteer. I just completed my 15th year at both places.
I feel a sense of accomplishment and I love giving back to my community.

You are doing great work and I am glad that you are helping immigrants !
