Celebration

CelebrationIt has been a good week at The Restoration House.— a week of good news and celebrations. We have celebrated a single mom getting keys to permanent housing for her family, a single mom graduating from school and earning a certification in phlebotomy, continued significant funding from a donor, among other things. We have celebrated the deepening of relationships and continued walking alongside one another although at times it is very hard to have patience and hope. We have celebrated job interviews that haven’t necessarily led to jobs because it is an opportunity to practice newly learned skills. We have celebrated the planning of The Village playground and the new voices in leadership and ideas we have seen come forth from participating families. We have celebrated meeting new faces from Emerald Youth Foundation and A Hand Up For Women and planning our future together. We tend to value and celebrate the good and the difficult because within both of those we find life and growth. What are you celebrating this week?
