Reflecting back with a grace-filled heart

End of year post-3


I have a habit of looking back and thinking about all of the things I didn’t do, or that I could’ve done better. In 2014, I made it my goal to learn to extend grace to myself….the kind of grace that I extend to others but rarely give myself. Looking back on 2014, I can see how Angel Wings Foundation has grown tremendously! We have a team of eight amazing individuals, a growing pool of supporters, and our Legacy project served over 250 people which resulted in 400 Hope Bags made by families and given to the homeless in WA State. We helped The Forgotten Project complete their first year of giving and loved working with our Youth Advisory Committee through our Legacy Program. A huge labor of love that has finally come to reality is receiving our official trademark for our logo! We were able to put a brand new roof on a young families home (thanks to Zetterberg Homes and Legends Roofing), providing them with peace of mind and health. Some days are harder than others….watching a family say goodbye to someone way to soon is gut-wrenching, but knowing that Angel Wings can help their legacy live on forever, well, that brings tremendous hope. Together, we made a difference in so many lives, through random acts of kindness, financial support, and Christmas surprises for those who aren’t expecting it. Looking ahead in to 2015, I am excited to see all of the tremendous growth that awaits us. I am not supposed to share our “top secret” plans with you, but I figure you won’t tell anyone. Plans include: website re-launch, expanding our programs (this makes me squeal with excitement), annual Hope Bags events (TWO locations!) and so much more. Thank you for walking alongside us, for being patient and supporting us. It’s easy for me to think, “I should’ve done more”….but in reality, I enjoyed the journey. I enjoyed meeting new people, showing our kids what true giving looks like and watching as they jump in to naturally serve. My dad has always told me, “It’s not about getting to where you are going, it’s about the relationships and the lessons you learn along the way”. Cheers! ~Holly
