I always say I am surrounded by amazing people, but when those people also become dear friends--something deeper happens. We believe that everyone has a gift and everyone has a need. Dorothy brought some of her gifts to LifeLine CDC during the last 8 months.
Her background is in management and her heart of gold was such a blessing to us. Her ability to create policies and procedures, volunteer manuals, and job descriptions was such an asset to us. Her organizational skills were so meaningful to me.
Some mornings we would sit and I would share my dreams and visions for the organization and she would listen, jot down some notes, and then come back with a plan to accomplish them. Sometimes I would just sit there with tears in my eyes--knowing that I needed her to make sense of some of my dreams.
For the past 8 months Dorothy would come on Wednesday mornings. We talked, we dreamed, we prayed, and for 6 hours my office was a buzz of brainstorming, working and getting things done.
Dorothy committed for 8 months, and she has become a dear friend and confidant. I will miss our weekly time tougher, but we have already scheduled our first coffee date for--yes you guessed it--Wednesday the 4th.
THANK YOU Dorothy!
