The Unsung Hero of 2009

Prompt for the day:

"New person. Who came into your life and turned it upside down? Who went out of their way to provide incredible service? Who is your unsung hero of 2009?"

Clearly, the unsung hero of 2009 is "G".

Thank you "G" for all that you do at the adult family home to care for my parents. You are a leader; a man whose compassion, insight, experience, grace, and concern for Mom and Dad have made all the difference in their care since that day in late April 2009 when they moved into their new residence. When the moving truck brought their belongings and we shepherded them inside the house, you were there to welcome them. And, since then, on weekdays your consistent presence, sense of humor, and tender loving care has not gone unnoticed.

Dad looks forward to Monday mornings which bring you back "on duty" after a weekend away. He knows his hours will be a brighter for your calm presence and reassuring smile. "G", you've made my life so much easier too. Knowing that my parents are cared for and in a safe place means everything. Thank you, "G". Thank you again and again.
