1. Receiving a phone call from the doctor to discuss various lab results. When the tests turn out normal (which they did in this case), usually a nurse or technician makes the follow-up call – so to talk with the doctor herself was impressive.
2. Taking a brief siesta underneath a tree. The sun and shade, warm air and light breeze, quiet grass and gentle rustle of leaves, made for soul-enriching contrasts.
3. Receiving an unexpected thank you note in the mail. The below passage made me pause. Talk about impact! I love the awesome power that people who care even a little bit can make.
Last year, 1,751 volunteers – including you! – contributed 58,110 service hours equivalent t0 27.93 full-time staff and valued at $1,286,555, to say nothing of the literally invaluable and immeasurable heart, energy, time, talent, support, and faithfulness you bring to your service. Thank you!
