Serenity or piece of mind is accomplished by very few people in the world. True happiness will come to the person who seeks and finds how to serve others.

We are overjoyed that our giving and sharing is called volunteering. If, in carrying the message of hope, we are volunteers, we are happy to be among those who are volunteers in its purest form. We welcome a chance to serve.
There are no honor rolls, awards, money, or trophies. We give for the pure joy of helping. Our greatest rewards come in the form of a firm handshake or a hug from someone to whom we’ve given. Sometimes it’s the gratitude in the eyes of a family member. That is enough.
I want to practice the advice not to seek glory for kindness I perform. I can never be happy if I depend on material rewards for what I have given.
