Generosity



I work with the most amazing people. I am frequently in awe of them. They are the great examples of love and compassion. 

Here are a few of the stories that inspire me-
  • There is a mentally handicapped man that works at the hospital. He's been there for years.  The imaging department takes really good care of him. Jodie (pictured above on the right) brings him meals. She makes sure that he's cleaning his house and taking care of himself.  He brings all his mail in so that someone can go through it to make sure that he's not getting scammed (which has happened in the past). These are just a few of the examples of the things I see my department do for Ron all the time.
  • Every Thanksgiving the hospital has a food drive to help employees who need help. Individual departments sign up to bring food for meals and the hospital buys the turkeys. Most departments sign up for one or two families. Every year Imaging signs up for TEN large families and the sign up sheet is full within minutes of it being posted.
  • Today we discovered that our housekeeper was having some financial difficulties and that her husband had been laid off.  We decided to collect some money to give to her for Christmas.  Within an hour we collected over $300 and Janelle (also pictured above) ran to Costco to buy food for Christmas dinner and some arthritis medicine that she knew that Gina needed. 
These are just a few examples of random acts of kindness that the people I work with do on a very regular basis.  I am honored to know them and to call them my friends. 


And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40
