A New Chapter…..New Beginnings
Being a part of the Angels Wings Foundation is an honor and a blessing in so many ways. This foundation began out of a vision one woman, one family, has to make a difference in the lives of people and families. I have observed first hand as Holly has responded to the needs of families in crisis, in very specific and tangible ways. A foundation like Angel Wings has been able to bring positive changes in very difficult and trying times. For some, that a person would want to respond to the needs of someone they may not know may seem odd, maybe even unrealistic. Yet, I believe that this response is designed into each one of us, and it is incredibly natural, even normal. I have witnessed, normal compassionate people become partners in a vision where lives that have been changed by illness or hardship, receive support and compassion throughout their journey.
For me, I have experienced the ending of a chapter in my life, and the beginning of a new one. With the loss of my father the end of May, and the birth of our first grandchild in June, life has been full of change. I have been blessed to have family and friends walk along side of me, and support me, my wife and children through some very challenging times. They continue to help as my family experiencing “new beginnings”. At first, my involvement in AWF was a response to Holly’s vision that caught my attention, and then gripped my heart, and I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. It has truly been a privilege to be a Trustee to such a fantastic organization. Now, I have experienced, in a much smaller measure, why organizations like AWF exist.
There are times in life, when the unexpected becomes the “new normal”. When something that you would never have considered would happen to you or your family happens. And from that moment on, your life is never the same. It is those times when the response of AWF makes all the difference in the world. It has been amazing to see the hope that is brought into a family when it is delivered on the wings of an angel.
Your contribution is what makes this a reality. Thank you for partnering with the Angel Wings Foundation!
