Spirit volunteers with me at a local assisted living home in New Milford.

The residents adore him!

I love going there! Everybody hugs and pets me. I get kisses.

The main reason we go is I bring my crystal singing bowls and the residents meditate to the sounds.

The bowls are very relaxing and it allows the residents and Spirit to quiet their minds. Everyone feels good afterwards, including myself.

Spirit volunteers because he knows it benefits him just as much as it does the residents.

I think it benefits me more because I get hugs, pets, and kisses. 

I agree. I think we both get the better benefit when Spirit volunteers.

The journey continues
