Review for God's Love We Deliver, Inc., New York City, NY, USA
I was unprepared for the infectious positive spirit of the volunteers and staff. Going into the kitchen area to work preparing dessert with people I'd never met before had me feeling a little tentative, because as a novice, I wasn't sure how they would react to someone new fumbling around their well-oiled machine. Boy was I wrong. I felt welcomed and was immediately embraced as if I'd been working with them for months or even longer. I don't know if this was just a "good day" or what but I had the sneaky suspicion that for these people, every day is a good day. They laughed and joked; they also watched me out of the corners of their collective eyes and firmly and gently, corrected my missteps. I never felt fully relaxed since I was nervous about making a mistake or keeping up with the pace - but I did feel comfortable. When it was over, I walked out of there feeling better than I had ever imagined about doing a good thing.
