Forward with Gratitude Home > Blog > Forward with Gratitude A A A By Marisa Geitner Gratitude is a force that sparks during the holidays and surges into the new year. I am filled with gratitude thinking about the Heritage Christian Services community, including all of you – faithful staff and volunteers, those we’re blessed to support, their loved ones and our supportive community. My gratitude for you, and your encouragement of people at Heritage Christian Services, inspires in me a strong sense of loyalty and the rigor to serve the community. Thank you for that. As we head into January, I’m thinking about more ways to apply the power of gratitude. There are still a lot of families awaiting services. Heritage Christian has been so blessed to grow and serve people’s needs over the years. How can our resources and experience fulfill the needs of people still awaiting support? How can we recognize our workforce for truly enriching the lives of others? How can we honor each person’s talents and abilities in the ways we offer support? As gratitude flows, I count blessings that come with it. I’m assured that the new year will be great. We will have triumphs through adversity, we will see amazing acts of compassion and we will grow the agency to serve community needs. There’s so much joy and inspiration ahead and I look forward to experiencing all of it with you.
