Support helps team keep standing
As I write this for the last time for 2010 I am reflecting back and remembering the different experiences of the year. Many will know that this year was a difficult one for the True Colours team as we faced our own grief, loss and health issues. Due to the smallness of the team this had a huge impact. But the support given to us throughout the year has assisted us to ‘keep standing’.
Every time there is a contribution to our organisation from the many different individuals who support True Colours, it means that we are able to sustain doing the work we do with seriously ill children and their families and it is very much appreciated.
I want to honour and acknowledge the children, young people and their families that we have supported this year. I am remembering the different aspects of your lives that you have shared with us due to the many challenges that health issues bring. Your courage, strength, resiliency and advocacy is truly amazing. As we have ‘walked alongside’ you on your different journeys, the team recognises our part is small. The bravery of you the children and young people, and you as families who show such love and devotion in your care is totally inspiring.
I acknowledge that this time of the year brings mixed feelings for many of you as we prepare for the Christmas and New Year holiday season.
To all of you who take the time to read this blog…. I wish for you some gentle restful connected times with family and friends this holiday break. I hope there will be opportunity for refreshed energy and some fun and light moments along the way. I look forward to reconnecting in the New Year.
