One of our longest serving and active community members was oozing excitement. He had to speak with me the moment I came in. He had obtained a good full time job that suited his talents. “It has been three years” he told me. I was thrilled to be sharing this moment with him. While his departure from his volunteer duties would be difficult for us, we could only be happy for his success. Later the same morning another community member shared the progress he had made in therapy the last few months. He too was proud when relating that his therapist had told him that he had made an amazingly quick recovery. We discussed how important it would be for him to keep progressing in his recovery and not slip back into old and comfortable patterns. How amazing that these two friends would want to be celebrating their victories with me. I was so glad to be included.
