Somehow, not only for Christmas, but all the long year through, the joy that you give to others, is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, the poor and lonely and sad, the more of your hearts possessing, returns to you glad.
As a team member of All Weather Seal West Michigan, I am blessed to work for such a company that continues to give back to the community all year round. Although AWS is a great company to work for, it isn’t just the company itself that is great, it is the whole team from the owner on down the proverbial ladder. Without the people behind the company, we would not be able to do as much as we do in the community!
This year with a new office in Northern Michigan, we were able to give back to 2 communities! With a great team, fantastic owner who encourages such efforts AWS was able to help 16 children have a brighter Christmas. We truly are the blessed ones!
While the smiles on Christmas morning will be bright, we at home will be smiling bright as well, not only were we able to do this, we also were able to help a family with a house full of windows! Our Windows of Warmth program is something we do each year and will continue to do so.
With a great team, we are able to give to the community other ways as well, often times our crews will go out and assist with home repairs and replacements when able. A little way to help ease the burdens of some that may not be able to patch a roof or replace a window themselves. It might be something where a little TLC is all that is needed, and they cannot do it themselves. The FROM (Flat River Outreach Ministries) may reach out to us and let us know when someone needs assisting! We are happy to do so and knowing that we can do this makes us smile knowing that our boss, our company that we work for encourages us to do this!
The Holidays are a time to give back, but why stop when the Holiday is over? Give back year round, there is always someone, somewhere who could use a little cheer! Most often, a little smile or hi, how are you doing today can make all the difference in someone’s day!
So smile, smile, and smile the day away!!! When you have a few extra minutes in your day, see if you can help someone. Make a difference in someone’s day TODAY!!
