Thank you ES for all you do. Every second provided by volunteers is greatly needed and appreciated.
When I was in hospital, a group of young children came by with cards, and socks. Of course they didn't expect to see a female patient, and they were
all excited, because they didn't have any socks for women. I told them they were wonderful socks, and they were my favorite. They had me crying like a
baby. I didn't lie. Those socks are my favorite, and I wear them with delight, at least a couple times a month.
I never realized before being flat on my face, how difficult it is to do just the simple things, like combing your hair, or brushing your teeth, when
you can't even lift your head. It isn't until you are as weak as a baby, and you look, into the beaming eyes of a person that just wants to help, and
see the genuine smile, of someone that takes pleasure in helping those that can't help themselves, that you know in your heart of hearts, how special
and how important volunteers are to the sick and weak.
May you be forever blessed for the generous gifts of your time and presence. It means more than you will ever truly know.
