Today was the last day of the “Christmas Wish Express.” This was an event put on by our Winona team with the intent of helping others in our community. It was an opportunity for family, friends, and coworkers to nominate someone who needed a helping hand this Christmas. My teammates had an awesome idea for this Christmas season.
I can’t even begin to express just how incredible these past couple of weeks have been. Not just because it’s our team, but because of the increased Christmas spirit it brought all of us and so many others. It grew and blossomed into not just helping the handful of people we were hoping to help, but in so many other beautiful ways. While it wouldn’t be right to share all the details let’s just say I am moved to tears by the generosity, giving, love, and passion of my teammates, our associates, our clients, and all of their families. The Christmas spirit is alive and well within all of us.
This morning one of my teammates shot me a text with a quote that his wife had just sent him. It totally hit the nail on the head…
I’m so thankful that we have had the opportunity to give. The warmth and joy in our hearts is the best Christmas present we could ever hope for. I’m forever grateful to have had the opportunity to play a small role in this incredible experience that touched so many in so many beautiful ways.
