I have felt like this last month has been a whirlwind!  I keep thinking how in the world did I get here?  What am I thinking?  I have no time left to do anything else, Am I able to give to manage everything in the best possible way and lastly I have felt overwhelmed at times.   I then take a deep breath and actually take a minute to sit down and think.  My thoughts come with such clarity!  I first think of one of the first people  I was able to help as he had broken his hip.  He is a good friend of mine actually and he consistently even now calls me his angel in his time of need. I think of a woman who was vital and full of life and is striving to maintain that vitality but currently is struggling through the hardest change of her life as her family is far away. However, I am able to see a sparkle in her eye every once in a while because she feels safe and secure. I think of some of the families I have had the privilege to meet and know that I was able to give some peace and comfort to their minds in their time of need during a new and scary challenge. Lastly, I think how amazing it is that I am able to be a part of a group of people who are so willing to reach out and care and love complete strangers and do it in a MOST professional, respectful manner.  That is when I realize I would do NOTHING else!!! The privilege is all mine! I get the most happiness and joy for the service that we all will need at one time.  What a great adventure that lays ahead with so many fabulous new people I will have the privilege to meet and love and grow from! Here is to a bright future and building of lasting friendships.
