Personal Thoughts

“One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.” —Lewis Carroll

I was blessed to grow up in a family in which serving others was a part of life. As a child, my parents often devoted our time to volunteer efforts in our neighborhood and the surrounding community. I have vivid memories of building the All Children’s Playground for disabled youth, collecting and donating supplies to our school, and pitching in to help our neighbors when they were in need. These early experiences shaped me into an adult who acknowledges and honors the connectedness within a community.

As a mother, I strive to pass this value to my own children by creating opportunities for them to serve others. My hope is that through these acts, a heart for service will grow and thrive within each of them. I want them to experience that we live life to its fullest when we give to others.

Over the last year, RCG has embraced the Five Essential Elements of Wellbeing. One of the key elements of wellbeing is Community and I’m grateful to work for an organization that believes, like I do, that service is not only important but a fundamental component to achieve our ideal life.
