“Never stop doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their heart.”
Just like clockwork every morning around 8:00 I will get a text message from Richard, one of our guys who suffers from CHF.
He will tell me his plans for the day, where he is going, and how he will be going. My reply to him is always Hey Buddy, that let’s him know I am fine.
Richard loves the library and spending the day there, the one here has a special room that our friends can go into to get out of the heat, read books, and even make a free five minute call. I was there a few weeks back and was very impressed with the way our friends are treated.
I think this is his way of letting me know that he is ok, and that he appreciates us for what we do as Advocates.
Each morning Angie and I touch base to see what our plans are for the day, and I always find out that she gets the same text message from Richard. I’m thankful he keeps us informed with his medical condition.
The point I am making is the same as the scripture…do unto others as you would have them do you.
We work hard to let out friends know they are somebody, they are loved, they are not the invisible people of the woods.
