Tomorrow I get the honor and privilege to volunteer at the Friends of the Children Seattle, Inspiring Greatness event. As we prepare for their special event, I am reminded of a story: I have been reading with a little one from the Friends of the Children program every Thursday for over a year now. A few weeks ago, she had a hard time reading the word “friend”, I encouraged her to sound it out and she just couldn’t get it. I said, “I will give you a hint, what are you and I?” She looked at me with her pretty brown eyes and said “family?” …she is my reason to get involved, its changed my whole outlook on life and hope.
Please take some time to check out their website to see if you can help: www.friendsseattle.org
