I am not a procrastinator. But, this letter was supposed to be completed a week ago.
My heart is sad. After three years at StepUp, I am leaving.
My 1,195 days have been eventful.
We raised $4,661,883 (but who is counting?)
We served 625 children and young adults who learned a lot of important life skills but who were also simply fed a warm meal, given a big ‘ol hug and told that they were loved and special every week for a whole year by StepUp staff.
My son started a new daycare and Art Ross put me back together after an emotional drop off.
1,000 people got jobs…and 97% of them were still working six months later.
I had an emergency appendectomy and Facetimed with my StepUp family from the operating room…(Truth)
Judy Bright taught us the importance of teamwork, philanthropy, how to clap!!- and so much more…
My husband and I had a daughter and Linda Nunnallee brought us dinner on our first night home from the hospital.
My heart aches with gratitude for what I have learned and what I have been given at StepUp Ministry. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this mission.
I cannot wait to be a volunteer.
