Seeing the world through someone else's eyes. When I chose to join the Friendship Community Care team, my first objective was to make a difference in someone else's life. Little did I know 7 years ago, what a difference someone else would make in mine. My consumer shows me the world through his eyes everyday we're together. He finds simple joy just from walking at the park and listening to the birds chirp. He loves to see the smile of laughter on little children's faces. He loves the animals at the shelter he volunteers for. The list goes on and on. My eyes have been opened to a whole new world by knowing my consumer. A world I would never have experienced had I not wanted to make a difference in someone else's life.

The PAST 9 Years, In An Essay

9 years ago my life began a drastic change . Going through yet another challenge. Many questions later of asking why me ? God brought me full circle to a profession I never thought I could handle but yet he stood beside me gave me strength and lead me to Friendship Community Care . I have worked with several of the adults love each and everyone they are my extended family . They have taught me more about myself than I have been able to learn about myself . They have shown me how to love myself more than I have ever been able to . They have all became family members that are missed at our family gatherings by myself and others when not in attendance. I have learned God put me where I needed to be , my challenges were and are minimal to their daily struggles that we take for granted . My first consumer was a lesson in itself teaching me patience. My second and third consumers , were brothers , I worked with them for 4 yrs . They are also my brothers from another mother . My next position , residential lead , loved loved loved that position . Being able to work with all the consumers at our facility , and learn their differences . What their likes and dislikes were . Being able to have our own one on one times . The appreciation that each one of our consumers have for us is priceless . What we all can learn as human beings. Then an opportunity to work with a woman that I knew for several years and thought the world of . Let me just say exillerating, exasperating , and exhausting, and we had an adventure of a life time together . So much fun and so much love . Now I work with my sister one of my best friends
My consumer has grown leaps and bounds . I am so PROUD of her . These 9 years in 2 words , 100% FULLFILLING.
THANK YOU MARILYN SMITH
