Dream Chasers

By Rebecca Evans

They are our dream chasers
Reaching high towards the sky
always believing they can make it happen
Never saying nigh.
They help us climb tall mountains
Navigating the compass along the way
taking us to new and exciting places
Never leading us astray.
They help us build strong communities
Wrapping families in their arms
Seeing the many opportunities
Forever working hard.
They number many these volunteers
They have given so much to us
How do we show our gratitude?
Thanks...just doesn't seem enough.

Thank You for Your Precious Gift

By Daria Skibington-Roffel

In our world where we come and go,
At a lightning pace and cannot go slow;
Time is such a rare commodity,
And care can seem like such an oddity!
The simple act of a loving touch,
And words of care can do so much;
To ease the soul of those who need;
A listening ear or a hand to feed.
While some minds may seem to wander so;
Though they do not have too far to go;
Every one of our residents say;
They love the folks who make their day:
Just a little bight lighter,
And a little bit brighter;
Blessed with hope and joy to live;
Thanks to the love a volunteer gives.
There is nothing on this Earth to compare,
To the selfless gift of time and care,
That volunteers give to all folk here,
Day after day, and year after year!

Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking;
I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain,
or help one fainting robin onto his nest again;
I shall not live in vain.

Gifts of Time

By Susan Greig

Both night and day
you've given of your time
To make this hospital/facility/hostel a better place
Every family here has benefited
And your efforts can never be erased
We send this note to tell you
That we are aware and all agree
Your gifts of time--large or small
Are special ones indeed!

Thank you for helping me find new ways to do just about everything after 12 years as an activity director.
