FROM THE DESK OF DINA
What an unbelievable time we are living through. Everyone’s world has recently been turned upside down by worries concerning the COVID-19 pandemic. In these trying times, I would like to send you a hopeful reminder that we will see this through. But for the families we serve, chaos, uncertainty, and fear have been part of their daily lives for a long time. The children and families who rely on RMHC of the Southwest have already been coping with life-threatening illnesses. They’re scared, and know their lives may never go back to normal.
Thank you for supporting our most worthy mission of keeping families close to each other and to essential medical care. YOU give our families strength and normalcy in times of worry and chaos. I am feeling truly lucky and blessed to be part of such an inspiring and charity that leads with our mission of serving families in need. Every day brings new considerations, but together we are prepared, organized and ready to face them with courage and compassion.
I read this quote recently, and wanted to share:
As life becomes harder and more threatening, it also becomes richer, because the fewer expectations we have, the more the good things of life become unexpected gifts that we accept with gratitude.
— Etty Hillesum
Here’s to taking each day as it comes and realizing we are in this together. Together we are strong — we are resilient — and we will maintain our steady focus on doing what is right for our organization and the children and families we serve in the long-term … ever striving to make the right decisions at the right time and then doing our very best.
Blessings and Be Well,
President & CEO, RMHC of the Southwest
Thanks so much for all you do to keep the “spirit” growing.
