I am a Catholic mother of five children whom I home school . Two of my children are in High School this year. We have appointments and trips. I teach religious education. I just transitioned to second grade first sacraments class, which took a lot of time in planning this summer. I have children with health concerns. I am now taking a course to complete my Bachelor's degree.
I have participated in "club" meetings and activities as I can. Have I made every activity? Of course not. But I am a trustee of the "club". I've been to all but one regular meeting, every officer's meeting, and 2 of the 3 special meetings this year. I've been in a parade, gone to Tulsa for an award ceremony, been to one funeral, all the memorial day activities, and participated in several flag ceremonies. I've folded hundreds of flags, placed them on graves, and helped pick them up again. I refuse to feel guilty because the head of the "club" feels put upon. I did, however, control my feelings. I came within a hair of quitting myself. Our leader is angry that he didn't get enough help. Well, I feel that I didn't get enough thank yous for my time either. I don't believe he reads my blog, and I'm still deciding if I should say anything. If the "club" falls apart because of this, I won't feel one bit regretful of my actions and I will try my best not to be bitter.
