Day 8: Hope

I often find myself overwhelmed with gratitude for this life I’m living. I wake up each day and appreciate the sunrise and a new day. I simply can’t imagine a world without hope, and I know that’s not true for all of us. I write these stories to share a little bit of that energy, a tiny spec from this corner of our world, and a little bit of hope for anyone that needs it….

  • We’ve worked with Shad for years (you guys know I change the names, right?!), he has a special place in all of our hearts. He hasn’t always had it easy, in fact he’s had a really tough go. One of our customers looked past his mistakes and gave him a chance. After his first day of work, he called us to tell us he was for sure going back and he would be there a LONG time. You see, Shad’s dad passed away 13 years ago when he was pretty young, and his dad’s former coworker was there that day and it brought tears to his eyes when he was flooded with memories.
  • Earlier this year we worked with Tyler. He was a referral to us but he needed a little bit of flexibility – he was in a legal battle for custody of his grandchildren. Sometimes we can really get stuck in the thick of life, and consumed – Tyler prevailed. He demonstrated a good work ethic, was hired on perm, and eventually got custody of his grandkids.

I’ll keep sprinkling in a little bit of hope for a few more days 😊

Merry Christmas to you and yours,
