Light the Way

on January 31, 2013

Although the winter solstice falls in December (for those in the Northern Hemisphere), it never really feels like the days grow longer and the light brighter until well into the new year. As winter wears on it becomes ever more important to notice the places of brightness, and to create those places where we can.

How will you find or shed a little extra light today?

I have recently been moved to a different delivery route (that I love). I was overjoyed at the new route. We got a new girl (Sheila) who took over my old route. She is lovely. We get along great and now I am not the only female route driver. Yay! I have helped her out as much as I can. Today, in order to spread the light of love, I am going to help her out even more. All the boxes that we will deliver are put onto one pallet. They are all mixed up. So, I usually sort them and put them in order from first stop to last stop. Today, I will stand by while she sorts and loads up. I will teach her but let her do it herself. “If you teach a gal to fish…” and so on. I think she can do it. She has been on the route for almost two weeks. Plus, I will be right there. Also, she has my number. Yesterday, she called me when she arrived at a new stop. I kept her on the line until she made the delivery. It was at a ranch with many barns and roads. It is the easiest place to lose yourself. So I wanted to make sure that she made it and that she was OK. When I started that route, the previous driver had already moved away. So, I did not have a mentor. I was “thrown to the wolves” so to speak. I was scared to death. I had no maps or anything. It is a hard route with many ranches and farms in the country. Many of them are hard to find. So, I decided that I would mentor anyone who had to take over the route in the future. I also made up a folder with every possible stop listed. Each stop has a map, directions, address, and phone number. I also made sure that she had my phone number and I told her to call me with any questions (which she has). I always try to be there for the newcomer. I love training people. This is how I spread the light of love. I education and mentor those who really need it. And I absolutely adore doing it.
